.be name servers and zonefile generation[Link]

The main objective of DNS Belgium is to manage the .be zone file. This zone-file is hosted on our primary name server. To secure the working of the dns service and for load balancing reasons DNS Belgium has set up several secondary name servers. For an accurate list of these servers we refer to the ‘Services’ section on our registrar website.

Our name servers have been using dynamic updates since 24 August 2005. On 1 December 2006 the use of dynamic updates was extended further with the inclusion of transfers. This means all new domains will be in the Master Name Server Zone File almost immediately after their registration. All other name server modifications waiting for a Zone File update will also be processed immediately.

The serial number of the SOA record for the .be zone is incremented by 1 each time we update one or more records.

Valid ipv6 addresses[Link]

You can use IPv6 addresses as glue for your name servers. DNS Belgium validates IPv6 addresses according to IPv6 address types as defined by RIPE.

Only one eighth of the total address space is currently allocated for use on the Internet: 2000::/3. These are the only IPv6 addresses accepted by us. More information about the allocation of IPv6 address space can be found on the ICANN website.
