Isn't using register.com considered outsourcing? 

In fact, I'd probably feel better not outsourcing to a big shop who is such a big target.....a little security through obscurity doesn't hurt.... =)

End result is when the outage on their servers occurs you need to modify the config on their website so that it points back to your private DNS servers. Propagation delays are a pain....
