The zone file is essentially a text file containing information about the domain name and related services, including name servers. In order for the domain-related services to be found on the Internet and to be used, information about them must be in the zone file. The file, including
subdomains pri.ee, com.ee, fie.ee and med.ee, is downloadable via the AXFR protocol on the address zone.internet.ee. For example dig @zone.internet.ee ee. axfr > zone.ee
We will increase the openness of .ee namespace and publish a .ee zone file, which is essentially a text file of information on domain names and the services relating to the names. The data contained in the zone file has so far only been accessible by single queries through the domain search database WHOIS; after the opening of the file, it will be available as a collection from 5 July.
ICANN accredited registrar Lexsynergy added .ee to its portfolio of domains. Lexsynergy offers online brand protection services within the domain space, as well as DNSSEC full service to customers. See more www.lexsynergy.com.
