If you are using the smallgod.net nameservers, then the query limit is
based on ALL queries coming from their servers. This is why it is
recommended to use a caching nameserver. This way, you have your own
DNS server and your own query limit instead of being lumped together
with all the other users of a shared server.
For info on how to set up a local caching DNS server look at this page:
