The following Xtra name servers will in future only accept queries from
Non-Telecom customers for domains that the name servers are

Recursive queries for other domains (e.g. will no longer

* ( ) also known as

We will be phasing in these changes from November 15th over a period of
several weeks and you may wish to alert your help desks to check the DNS
settings of users having problems after that.

Currently Xtra operates the following recursive DNS services:

We are happy for external people to query those IP's for DNS
troubleshooting and similar purposes but they should not be directly
configured into machines.

Please note these IP's may change from time to time and external access
may be limited or withdrawn without prior warning (especially in cases
of abuse).
