It has been brought to our attention that an organisation calling itself ‘Domeinregistratie Nederland’ has been seeking to sell domain names with other extensions to the registrants of, for example, the .nl versions of the names in question. If you are approached by this organisation, please report the matter to fraudemeldpunt.nl.

 

We wish to emphasise that the organisation in question is not SIDN. SIDN is the registry for .nl. We do not sell .nl domain names to registrants directly, but always through our registrars. View view the list of our registrars.

    31 October 2012 The Authentic Data (AD) flag is used by caching DNS servers to indicate that they have validated the DNSSEC records. The idea is that the client doesn't then have to repeat the check. Use of the AD flag is, of course, safe only on a network where the security of the last mile is assured. Examples include company networks, campus networks and the closed networks belonging to internet access providers and mobile operators. On such networks, DNSSEC validation and DNS caching can be centralised on the recursive DNS servers.

The new feature is currently still experimental, but the developers say it works well. “The underlying design philosophy is that legitimate look-ups shouldn't be refused, since that results in sites and services being unavailable to end users.” Validation by the Recursor has been on the agenda for some time, but has had to wait for refinement of the DNSSEC implementation on the PowerDNS authoritative server. Protection against DDoS/amplification attacks has also been a high priority in recent years, leading to development of the dnsdist load balancer, for example
