DNS Flag Day

Post by thecoalman » Wed Jan 30, 2019 1:22 am

You may want to check your domains for this event as they may no longer resolve if not compliant. Test is available on the linked site.
https://dnsflagday.net/

The current DNS is unnecessarily slow and inefficient because of efforts to accommodate a few DNS systems that are not in compliance with DNS standards established two decades ago.

To ensure further sustainability of the system it is time to end these accommodations and remediate the non-compliant systems. This change will make most DNS operations slightly more efficient, and also allow operators to deploy new functionality, including new mechanisms to protect against DDoS attacks.

DNS software and service providers listed on this site have agreed to coordinate removing accommodations for non-compliant DNS implementations from their software or services, on or around February 1st 2019. This change will affect only sites operating non-compliant software.

All OK. Not that one of my sites gets that much traffic anyway, it's mainly just for fun and testing. My company's internal I'm not even bothering since it's not internet accessible. :P
