Since 2004, insert: <a class="external-link" href="https://atlas.ripe.net/dnsmon/" target="_self" title=""> DNSMON insert: </a> has provided a comprehensive and independent overview of the quality of the service provided by infrastructure-level Domain Name System (DNS) servers. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

DNSMON is built on top of the insert: <a class="external-link" href="https://atlas.ripe.net" target="_self" title=""> RIPE Atlas service insert: </a> using insert: <a class="external-link" href="https://atlas.ripe.net/anchor" target="_self" title=""> RIPE Atlas anchors insert: </a> as vantage points for its measurements. Measurements are carried out by sending normal DNS queries to monitored servers at regular intervals. All results are available to the public. insert: </p>

insert: <p>

The RIPE NCC's DNSMON measurements benefit the entire Internet community by providing an objective and impartial global overview of TLD-level DNS operations. As part of this service, we monitor some interesting infrastructure domains, including the root and some ccTLD zones. The list of currently monitored domains is included in the insert: <a class="anchor-link" href="#appendix" target="_self" title=""> appendix insert: </a> . insert: </p>

insert: <p>

If requested by the zone operators, we will additionally configure monitoring for the DNS servers of: insert: </p>

insert: <ul>
    insert: <li>
  • ccTLDs and IDN ccTLDs from the RIPE NCC service region [ insert: <a class="anchor-link" href="#1" target="_self" title=""> 1 insert: </a> ] insert: </li>
  • insert: <li>
  • ccTLDs and IDN ccTLDs operated by RIPE NCC members [ insert: <a class="anchor-link" href="#2" target="_self" title=""> 2 insert: </a> ] insert: </li>
  • insert: <li>
  • Any Tier-1 ENUM domain (for example: 1.3.e164.arpa) insert: </li>
  • insert: </ul>
insert: <p>

There is no additional cost to the domain owners for monitoring as part of the DNSMON service. insert: </p>
