Thanks Romeo. This is great news. Bringing in a competent DNS hosting provider will add diversity and resiliance to the DNS infrastructure for ripe.net. It’s also good that these new arrangements are documented in a contract. I’m sure the WG agrees. Well, I hope it does... :-) I’m sure you’ll keep the WG informed of how this works out and what happens when the contract comes up for renewal. My thanks and appreciation to your team for the hard work of preparing and running the RFP and arranging the contract with the supplier.
