New DNSNODE sites improve DNS service for the Americas

Stockholm, 16 March 2021- Netnod is proud to announce the deployment of a new DNSNODE site in Guatemala city, Guatemala. This site in Guatemala is the latest in a series of sites deployed in Latin America through a long-standing partnership with the Latin American Regional Internet Registry LACNIC.

“This new site continues a series of new deployments and upgrades throughout the Americas,” said Miguel Alktun, Business Development, DNS. “These new sites bring improved DNS service to the region for the DNS root name server operated by Netnod as well as for DNS services to ccTLDs and to corporate domains.”

"We are pleased to continue the collaboration between Netnod and LACNIC," said Guillermo Cicileo, Head of Internet Infrastructure Research and Development, LACNIC. "In this case, we are supporting the emerging new IXP in Guatemala that will serve many operators in that country”.

The new site in Guatemala, which is already taking a noticeable traffic load over both IPv4 and IPv6, follows a series of deployments in the Americas over 2020 which includes new sites in:

  • Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • Calgary, Canada
  • Cochabamba, Bolivia
  • Fremont, CA, USA
