Why would you want to do that?

An own domainname has a simple cost of about 15 euro a year, but a DNS-server is normally free of charge.
There is no reason why you want to use Google DNS as they charge per number of requests.

I have lots of domains and never pay more then 15 euro a year tops, regardless of the requests or traffic.

Just checked your domain in price....that is expensive!!

yo3ggx.ro year € 55,00

yo3ggx.eu year € 2,95 but renwal is 8,95

yo3ggx.net year € 11,99

All ex taxes....but DNS entries included. Don't know what they charge you, but it's not normal to pay for DNS-entries.
These are prices that I have to pay ex 21% VAT, but DNS included....you may overpay a lot.

For the DNS server service from Google CloudDNS I pay less than 1$/month with the current usage.
The domain is registered in Romania, paid 5 years ago, one time payment.

Cool!!! Didn't know that.
But can't you point the domain to use a different server?

There are many servers that do DNS for free or less costs.

12 dollar per year for DNS is a lot of money, and usages got nothing to do with it, as no DNS stores requests....normally they don't.
Strange Google charges by the numbers.

Hi,

I am not aware of any reliable DNS server service that is less than Google CloudDNS (or free) and does not required monthly confirmation for the host (like DDNS does now) and still supports dynamic update.

Have a look at duckdns....they do everything for free.
And it seems they do domain-DNS for free too.

From their web site:
"Duck DNS is a free service which will point a DNS (sub domains of duckdns.org) to an IP of your choice"

Not good for me... Such a service I have for free from Asus.

I know, but they state this on their mainpage:

new: transferable domains

But I can not find what it is :lol:

Also:
Q: I want to use my own Domain name with DuckDNS, can I do this?

A: Yes you can. At your NAME provider set your purchased record as a CNAME to your duckdns.org record.
www.ilikeweasels.org CNAME weasels.duckdns.org
