This assignment is in two parts. First, you are to conduct research on the Internet and prepare a comparison/contrast of 5 different companies that offer DNS services--including pricing, terms of contract, other offerings, and then finally providing your recommendation as to which is the best solution. PART TWO - This requires you to also engage in research activities (most likely via the Internet) in terms of legislation regarding DNS providers and other legal issues. One hint would be to start with the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and see what comes up. The second part should be a 1-2 page write up and can include copies of any relevant articles that you encounter.
