They host the DNS on their servers, and I have all my family's jedi.com mail addresses set up with them as redirects, mostly to gmail addresses that no outsiders ever see. You can even set up multiple destinations for a single address, so (for instance) my son's email also gets copied to my wife's and my accounts. The only cost for that is the $10-ish per year for the domain registration.

It appears directnic.com wants me to pay $20/year for a *TOTAL* of 6GB of storage for up to 6 email addresses, and that won’t work, I’m hoarding too much email (that I never read), and my parents hoard way more than I do.
