CIRA's D-Zone Anycast DNS now hosting the .PT zone files, adding new protection to Portugal's domain
COPENHAGEN, Denmark, March 13, 2017 /CNW/ - Today at the ICANN meetings in Copenhagen, the Associação DNS.PT and the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) announced a partnership on global DNS services for the .PT domain. Both CIRA and the Associação DNS.PT are leading country code top-level domains (ccTLDs) with strong visions for a collaborative and inclusive global Internet.
This partnership will allow .PT to leverage CIRA's global DNS architecture to expand their DNS architecture, increasing .PT's resistance to DDoS attacks against the DNS.
"The ccTLD community, and in particular .PT, is driven by a common objective of improving the global Internet and ensuring the safety and security of the global domain name system. This partnership with CIRA give us an excellent tool to contribute to respond to new global cybersecurity threats, scaling our DNS architecture to meet the needs of a growing global domain name."
- Luisa Gueifão, Chair of the board of directors at Associação DNS.PT
"We built our D-Zone DNS Anycast service to meet the needs of .CA, making it the perfect fit for other members of our global ccTLD community. We know that the DNS is becoming a target for malicious online actors and we are working with the global Internet community to ensure that we can scale our protections, and continue to deliver safe and secure domain name services."
- Jacques Latour, CTO at CIRA
