Verisign to Provide Secondary DNS Services for the RIPE NCC’s Zones

dns news

In July we published a Request for Proposals (RfP) for a trusted third party to provide secondary DNS services for the RIPE NCC's zones.

Following our announcement, we received three final proposals by the conclusion of the process. We selected the best fitting proposal based on the technical and non-technical requirements in the RfP document.

The proposal submitted by VeriSign Sàrl (“Verisign”) was the best fit. We subsequently signed a contract with Verisign, which comes into effect before the end of this year. The contract is for the period of one year, with the intention to renew yearly. Prior to renewal, we will look at the benefits of the service and actual market situation at that time to decide on renewing the service.

We'd like to express our gratitude to all parties who submitted proposals. We look forward to working with Verisign in the future.
