Upcoming change to off-site secondary DNS

2019-10-01 - News - Tony Finch

This notice is mainly for the attention of those who run DNS zones for which the UIS provides secondary servers.

Since 2015 we have used the Internet Systems Consortium secondary name service (ISC SNS) to provide off-site DNS service for University domains.

ISC announced yesterday that the SNS is closing down in January 2020, so we need alternative arrangements.

We have not yet started to make any specific plans, so this is just to let you know that there will be some changes in the next few months. We will let you know when we have more details.
