DNS

The RIPE NCC operates two independent DNS services. Both of these are provided by distributed nodes using IPv4 and IPv6 anycast.

The first service is K-root, one of the 13 Internet root name servers.

The second is Authoritative DNS (AuthDNS), which hosts reverse DNS zones, ripe.net, e164.arpa and some other infrastructure zones, and provides secondary DNS for various ccTLDs.
