New DNS products from Nominet

We are excited to introduce a new suite of products to support TLDs when they need it most.

Nominet is one of the world’s largest country code registries, running for over 20 years and part of the UK’s critical national infrastructure

  • We currently manage the DNS for 76 TLDs
  • We were recently re-selected by ICANN as one of three EBERO providers worldwide
  • Our understanding of the DNS underpins a sophisticated cyber-security capability used by the UK government and global enterprises to secure their networks
  • Our commercial success funds an ambitious program to improve the lives of one million young people a year through technology

Our four DNS products

1. Emergency Registry DNS Service (ER-DNS)

A service designed to cater for catastrophic registry DNS failure, whether due to technical failure, natural disaster or other events directly affecting a Registry Operator’s systems.

2. Registry Secondary DNS (RS-DNS)

A secondary DNS service designed for TLDs, updated directly from the Registry’s master server. This service must be used as secondary with other active nameservers.

3. Registry Public DNS (RP-DNS)

Designed to function as your Registry’s complete authoritative public DNS service updated directly from your hidden master. This service may optionally be used as a secondary service.

4. Registry Public Signed DNS (RPS-DNS)

To take the complexity out of DNSSEC signing your TLD, this is a service designed to take an unsigned zone from your hidden master, sign it and serve it on the internet.
