You can also enter static A records.

It all depends on what you need DNS to do.

/ip dns static allows you to add static A records. This is rather more than just name caching.

Yeah, well, it's more like adding static entries to the cache. RouterOS does not implement enough of DNS to allow it to be an authorative server for a zone. It can only act as a (caching) resolver. But that's enough in my book, a router is a router and a DNS server is something else.

Agreed. I use the static A records to point to a few internal boxes, nothing more.

well if you want to use easy dns management, just try free dns service laying on the internet, like zoneedit, freedns, etc. :D
