Is it really free?
Forwarding domains should be easy to set up. I use this myself for domcloud.io.
How can I check redirects will work?
This service uses Google's Public DNS Resolver. Once first accessed, values will be cached for a day. For right now there's no way to flush the cache sorry.
Why does it load slowly?
It is only being slow the first time because it has to sign HTTPS certificates.
How about IPv6?
IPv6 record is added in
r.forwarddomain.net so subdomain redirects will simply work with IPv6. We don't guarantee that its IPv6 address will be persistent though. See #2 for apex domains setup.
What records do we keep?
We only keep caches of DNS records and SSL certs. This also means we can see how many users and what domains are using our service from the software cache, but that's all. We don't keep log traffic nor keep any user data anywhere on our server.
