NIC Chile informs that three new dedicated servers providing DNS service for .CL domain names are now in operation. Located in the cities of London, England; Amsterdam, Netherlands; and Tokyo, Japan; they belong to an anycast cloud under direct control of NIC Chile. These servers are hosted by "Packet Clearing House" (PCH), operators of multiple Internet Exchanges Points (IXP) through the world.
In this way, the network of servers for .CL which NIC Chile manages directly, is now present in 4 regions outside of Chile: Europe (Czech Republic, Denmark, England and Netherlands), North America (USA and Mexico), South America (Brazil and Peru) and Asia (Japan); in addition to 7 nodes distributed over 3 cities in Chile, that cover almost all the domestic internet service providers (ISP).
Additional DNS service for .CL are provided by agreements and contracts with prestigious external organizations, such as ISC, NETNOD (Autonomica) and Packet Clearing House.
With the operation of these new nameservers, NIC Chile continues its investment to improve the robustness and response time of the network of servers that resolve domain names for .CL worldwide.
