As you know, for every change in the root zone (even to change a name server), ICANN requires that you sign a contract that most ccTLDs refuse (among other things, it requires the right for ICANN to AXFR your entire zone file, for ridiculous reasons, see <URL:http://www.centr.org/docs/statements/ICANN-Zone-Access-Comments.html>). Albanians, for instance, required the change many months ago but ICANN is still holding the change because they do not want to sign. French had a similar problem. > Your argument might be that "they had enough time to migrate". True. Yes, they had, but ICANN/DoC bureaucrats hold them hostages. > You are free to remove them completely from ns.EU.net, but as long > as ns.EU.net is a live box and serves as a DNS - it is a part of > production environment. IMHO, it is better to shut it down completely. The DNS behaves fine when a server is down, not when it is running and giving possibly wrong information (as ns.eu.net hosted by RIPE already did for former domains of EUnet-France). Otherwise, nsd is a very fine software :-) and I'm glad to see it used in production. Why not trying it on NS.RIPE.NET?
