Re: KPNQwest server.

Very welcome,

Thanks for this Dani it gives everyone much more breathing space.

I think this a fantastic effort on behalf of the NCC, the folks at and anyone else involved, they should all be applauded for it.

A few logistical questions that may be relevant to those affected.

Is there a projected time when this service may be discontinued?
I can imagine that the RIPE NCC doesn't want to indefinitely run secondary for end sites?

If not:

This is in the same AS as Is it also physically on the same infrastructure?

What I guess I'm asking is: To what extent do those using both and have redundancy between the two servers?

Dear all,

Given the current situation of KPNQwest and the possibility
of its services going offline sometime soon, the RIPE NCC in
agreement with KPNQwest will be temporally hosting this
server ( in its premises.

This is to avoid major problems in the Internet as this server
is secondary for a large number of ccTLD's zones, and thousand
other zones.

We (AS3333) will be soon announcing the prefix.

Trusting that this is welcome news.

Best regards.
