Nameservers hosting Icelandic domains (.IS domains) must comply with all of the following requirements:

Nameservers must allow connection to UDP port 53, and to TCP port 53 as well (see RFC5966). Nameserver must be consistently registered in DNS, i.e. its own A resource record must be available and a corresponding PTR resource record as well. Namesever name can only contain ascii letters, digits, hyphen and periods. For nameservers within the .IS zone, the following also applies: Hostname can not be numeric only (i.e. (See: RFC1035 RFC1123 RFC1912 ). The full name of the nameserver (FQN) must include the hostname (i.e. the canonical name of the machine the nameserver is running on).

Most of the ISNIC sanctioned DNS servers reside in Iceland, due to the odd TTL requirements. If you need a free DNS, you can use, which allows free DNS setup, and has most of the important parts in English, so it doesn’t require too much translation from Icelandic.

Hi @jbear

It should work, so can you contact ISNIC and ask why delegation failed?
