Name Server Network

Lightning Wire Labs operates a global network of name servers that provide round-robin load balancing and automatic fail over.


Our name servers are located closely to the largest European Internet Exchanges DE-CIX and LINX and at central locations in North America for fast response times.

  • Europe
    • Hanover, Germany
    • Telehouse North, London, United Kingdom
    North America
    • Dallas, Texas, United States


Our name servers are running PowerDNS which is a BIND-compatible free name server. We use a PostgreSQL database backend for storing zone data and fast replication to our multiple data centres.
