Are they trying to stop people from running domain
hosting from home?

I run my own DNS server and it still works with your host not found
test and also the google search bar within firefox.  I'm in the valley,
so perhaps they are implementing this one segment at a time.

I use dyndns for my personal domain as I always imagined
inbound DNS queries would be a red flag in violation of their policies.
