Automated DNS server testing

Every 15 minutes, full testing is performed on each publicly listed Tier2 server. The results and history of this testing may be viewed from here. You can view either Tier1 or Tier2 server results, and filter the display based on region. This information may be helpful in choosing reliable servers near you.

In addition, you may test a new or unlisted Tier2 server for functionality. Note that your server must respond to public queries to perform this test. Visit and enter your IP or hostname, then select the type of server you have.

The following tests will be performed for all servers:
After the test completes, you will get a pass/fail status. Feel free to perform this test as often as needed while configuring your server. Once your server passes all tests, and if you are willing, it may be considered for addition to the list of official servers.

Daily testing

The code used for validating server operation is also used to run automated daily status checks. Once every 12 hours, the results are sent to the reports mailing list. The results of these tests affect the active status of the servers listed on Tier2 and will cause the dns.opennic.glue zone to be regenerated. If your server is marked as 'temp outage' and you believe this is in error, please contact Shdwdrgn on IRC to manually verify your server's accessibility.
