Dear guys, below is what I need and I wanna make sure SMB is the correct solution I have to hire.
I need to register a new domain name and tranfer my current domain name. Along with it I need some 250 DNS accounts for starting (I actually have some free DynDNS Free accounts which I would like to transfer to SMB)
Now, once I have hired your services (excuse me if question is TOO Basic) question is if I cand use DNS account with my own Domain, example can I create an DNS account like this:
And can you answer What is a Zone?
Thanks and regards...

You can't transfer free hostnames - like Custom DNS the SMB services are only for use with domains you purchased domain registration for.
SMB25 is also intended for use with (up to) 25 domains. If you have 250 domains you may want to look at one of the higher packages instead.
You can then create up to 250 records per domain - how you decide to use your domain is then up to you. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by create a DNS account like
account135.example.com (since the domain
mydomain.com is a real domain, owned by somebody other than you).
A zone, very simply, is a domain (it's a little more complicated than that, bit it's close enough). For instance, if you had purchased the registration for
example.com you could treat that as one zone. If you had another domain,
example.net registered and hosted somewhere else you could create
second.example.com at DynDNS in your Dynect package as 2 further zones.
If this doesn't answer your question please edit it and let us know what you want to know.
