    Let?s say we?re administrating our own DNS servers...

    1- If we have very high TTL values, ...apart from the disadvantages, would lower the traffic generated, correct?

    2- In the case above, what's the maximum TTL values we can set for a certain domain?

    I read somewhere that we could push it to 3 days? In other place I saw 3 to 7 days depending on the type of files they are using...(3 days for text-type objects, 7 days for binary).

    Anybody knowledgeable on as to give us some light?
    Thank you
