Domain Name System (DNS) Hosting


The ICN provides DNS hosting service in the form of primary hosting service and/or secondary hosting service. ICN DNS currently does not support DNSSEC. Engineering staff are currently evaluating adoption based on the root server adoption rate and the maturity of the technology in the Internet at large. If adopted, the upgrades and testing process required could allow for ICN adoption in the future.

DNS Technical Reference 
Computers with Internet access, such as workstations and proxy servers, must have DNS IP addresses properly configured within their TCP/IP settings. Specify the following addresses, in the order shown, within your computer's TCP/IP settings.
If your organization maintains its own DNS, the address for your server should be the first entry in your settings and the appropriate ICN address could be used as secondary.
