DNS Belgium has selected Valideus from the various candidates to validate applications for .vlaanderen and .brussels domain names during the second phase of the launch.  This phase runs from 2nd October to 3rd November 2014.


We are gradually laying claim to ‘classic’ status. The Bike to Close the Gap event held on Thursday 19th June was already on its fourth edition and once again brought together the sports-loving IT people of Belgium (and even a few from the Netherlands).

Today, 18 June 2014, ICANN announced that .vlaanderen and .brussels have been delegated. This means they are added to the DNS root zone.


We have hired 4 new people in the past six months. We are delighted with this boost to the DNS Belgium team and would like to briefly introduce the new faces to you.
