DNS Flag Day


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I just found out about this and I've had a couple of clients who have domain issues related to this. In a nutshell:


Check for domain registrar compliance:


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.

So far so good with my clients on MDD. It's the ones on EIG sites & the Big D that have an IT person whispering in their ear because they get affiliate $. Is the $10, $15 worth it??? I guess so. Me, I'd rather have speed, security, consistent upgrades to servers & how fast MDD fixes issues. Pretty sure none of those other hosts would reply in 2min to a post.
