DO Ideas 2

Improve speed of DNS API to Resolution time.

AWS, Zerigo, etc etc all have excellent time from API request to DNS resolution (obviously dependent on what your cache time is set at.) But while everything else about your APIv2 is great, and the servers and service is good, this is unacceptable. I've been a customer for quite some time and I've been working on an Golang API CLI client (http://github.com/slantview/doctl) which is almost feature complete and just needs some tests after that, I was hoping to move my DNS over, but I need almost immediate updates to my records for this to work with my needs. Please fix.

    We've rebuilt our entire DNS system and you can find all of the details in our blog post here: https://www.digitalocean.com/company/blog/coming-to-port-53-near-you-new-digitalocean-dns/ As part of this large rewrite we have made DNS updates almost instantaneous so you should no longer run into the issue that you've been experiencing. Thanks!
