Changes to our DNS servers ns1/ns2.sonic.net

Starting today ( 8, Feb ) the name servers we hand out to our customers for DNS resolution ( ns1.sonic.net and ns2.sonic.net ) are going to be updated to exclude authoritative data, and be recursive only name servers.

This means that our name servers will behave more like other name servers on the Internet, prior to this change you may have received confusing results when asking our name server for a domain name, and asking Google’s open recursive DNS servers ( for example ) — now you will receive the same results.

Note: customers do not need to update their DNS resolver settings.

  1. Good change against cache poisoning attacks. Should have been done years ago actually.

    I suspect most customers will be confused by this announcement. Probably could have included a note to let them know they won’t need to change anything.
