Our mission is the operational and administrative management of the domain names .be, .vlaanderen and .brussels.

VALues anD Future value enablers

Security, quality and reliability

These values are the corner stones of the technical mission of DNS Belgium. The fundamental importance of these values is recognized and subscribed to by all its stakeholders.  Our current efforts on the security front are substantial. We want to continue to invest so as to keep improving our security level.

Innovative and pro-active

DNS Belgium wants to remain a reliable and innovative player in the domain name world. We can draw on thorough knowledge of the market to build innovative solutions.  

DNS Belgium provides a high quality registration system to a network of 450 registrars. In addition, DNS Belgium ensures that the .be domain names are constantly available worldwide by guaranteeing the permanent accessibility of the name servers. 

Our innovative and pro-active approach to developments in the field enables us to guarantee a secure, high quality and stable Internet in the future as well.

Social and neutral

These values are fundamental for DNS Belgium and its employees, so we pay unremitting attention to them.   

In concrete terms, this means that DNS Belgium is constantly endeavouring to make the Internet accessible for everyone, e.g. by keeping the price as low and the registration conditions as simple as possible.

DNS Belgium is neutral, which means that we carry out our activities independently from any political affiliation, language, culture, etc.  But also that we assume a neutral attitude to all players in the digital society and we approach everyone the same way:  large and small registrars, registrants, etc. are treated with the same respect, and can count on the same quality. 


DNS Belgium is very conscientious about the sustainability of its service, its suppliers and all partners involved, and is an active promoter of corporate social responsibility:

Our sustainability policy is based on four pillars:

  • Inspiring workplace
  • Leader in security
  • Digital awareness
  • Sustainable chain management

We defined the strategic objectives to be achieved by 2020 for each of these pillars. All our decisions and actions are checked against these objectives and their  sustainability in the long term.
