PTA chairman visits PKNIC office

Pin It LAHORE (July 19 2009): The transition of county code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) of Pakistan ".pk" has been successfully completed marking it as the most significant and noteworthy landmark in the internet history. In this regard, Chairman Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), Dr Mohammed Yaseen on Saturday visited the Lahore office of PKNIC.
PKNIC is the present ccTLD operator for ".pk" domain. The purpose of his visit was to appraise the newly upgraded ".pk" infrastructure, data centre and customer services department in Pakistan. During the visit Chairman PTA noted that the root server mirroring for ".pk" domain in Pakistan was fully operational. PKNIC has successfully implemented the root server mirroring for ".pk" and tested it with all global root servers from A.ROOT-SERVERS.NET to M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.
The new authoritative mirror M-2.PKNIC.NET.pk (203.128.7.123) would enable local resolution of ".pk" websites. PKNIC representatives briefed the Chairman regarding mirroring techniques and provided some testing on new Domain Name Service (DNS) resolution mechanism of .pk ccTLD. Formal inauguration of new PKNIC office shall be organised in August. Chairman PTA appreciated the efforts of PKNIC management especially of Ashar Nisar and Imran Anwar for this important accomplishment.-PR
