The zone file contains information about domain names and related services, including name servers
but it may not be an exhaustive list of .ee domains.
There is no confidential information in the zone file - the information we publish in this file is necessary for the domain name to function at a technical level.
Although .ee zone file as a whole was not accessible before, with some technical knowledge it was possible to put it together using public data on the internet. Making the zone file public will likely not affect the volume of spam.
Not all registered .ee domains can be found in the zone file. In order for a domain name not to be found in the .ee zone file, it must be registered without name servers or the entries must be removed from an existing domain name. Note, however, that if the domain name is not in the zone, it is not possible to use services related to the domain name.
The zone file is updated in every ten minutes, so you always have access to the latest information.
The file is downloadable using the AXFR protocol on the address zone.internet.ee. For example: dig @zone.internet.ee ee. axfr > zone.ee
