nic.at’s RcodeZero DNS service has just started supplying Anycast technology to the Polish domain extension .pl . This means that nic.at infrastructure provides supplementary hosting and security to the seventh biggest ccTLD in the EU with over 2.5 million domains. According DNSperf statistics, RcodeZero DNS is one of the fastest anycast providers worldwide.
CEO Richard Wein is delighted with the new RcodeZero DNS customer NASK, the Polish national research institute responsible for the Top Level Domain .pl: „After .nl and .eu we have succeeded in convincing another major country code TLD with a couple of million domains to use our services. In an industry where you know each other very well, this is a big compliment for me: The relevant players trust the technical competence of nic.at. This shows that even a small country can provide services to the big ones so long as you focus on quality, reliability and flexilibity.“
It is the clear goal of nic.at to gain more RcodeZero DNS customers within the TLD community – also on other continents.
The technical implementation for .pl is proof of nic.at’s ability to meet individual customer requirements. The .pl TLD consists of 159 subzones. Therefore – in contrast to other customers with fewer zones – every process and check has to be performed 159 times before distributing the zone to the servers all over the globe.
The constant expansion and upgrading of the RcodeZero infrastructure is also recognised in the worldwide Ranking of DNSperf where the DNS performance of the top Anycast providers is measured. RcodeZero DNS actually ranks sixth – not far away from well-known names like Cloudflare and Wordpress.
