DNS, an essential core infrastructure element of the Internet closer to our members

“Making the Internet faster and more resilient for our members is among the core missions of LU-CIX. We are very happy to count PCH among our connected networks, as they bring an essential core infrastructure element of the Internet closer to our members: DNS. With their global Anycast DNS service, which currently hosts 117 ccTLDs and 50 gTLDs (among which you can find for example the DNS zones .lu, .fr), PCH strives to provide the Internet-using public with the quickest, most resilient DNS user-experience." stated Michel Lanners, CIO at LU-CIX Management G.I.E.

“We are excited to improve DNS resolution in the heart of Europe by bringing clusters of name servers to Luxembourg with the support of LU-CIX” said Gael Hernandez, Director of Edge Network Strategy and Planning at PCH. “Besides authoritative DNS, we also host Quad9, an open DNS recursive service for free security and high privacy.” stated Mr. Hernandez.
