Authoritative DNS Services

Authoritative IPv4 and IPv6 DNS Services hosted and maintained by GlobalNOC and KINBER is now available to KINBER Members. The service is hosted across 2 servers at diverse points in the PennREN Network and 1 server in AS1767, Indiana’s Research & Education Network (I-Light). Zone files are also stored in a SVN repository located at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN and Indianapolis, IN for additional backup.

KINBER can provide either a standalone service, or add redundancy for sites that also have their own infrastructure.

DNS change requests can be emailed to our NOC (, and processed within 1 business day. We authenticate the request by calling you back at a number we’ve already agreed upon. Optionally, you can GPG sign the request with a key you’ve requested that we trust. If more prompt service is needed, follow the email request with a phone call to our NOC (317-274-3213) and request immediate action. This contact information is at as well.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this service, adding or adjusting your zone(s) to our new server, or to find out more about the service, please open a ticket with the PennREN NOC by calling 317-274-3213 or emailing them at
