ISC is a 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation, so it is not at all surprising that we engage in numerous activities intended to benefit the public. While our core software offerings benefit the public indirectly because they enable network operators and ISPs to support the Internet’s infrastructure, we offer several programs directly to the Internet community:
ISC offers a public benefit version of SNS. We are pleased to serve more than 60 top level domains in addition to hundreds of Internet infrastructure, public benefit/non-profit, and partner domains. These DNS zones are served using ISC’s global anycast network.
ISC’s main data centers in the San Francisco Bay Area are available to qualified public benefit projects for hosting, mirroring, or network operations. Among the services available include rack space and power, connectivity, remote hands, and web hosting.
Acting in conjunction with Men & Mice and DNSco, ISC offers Certification program in DNS, BIND and DNSSEC, based primarily on the material presented in the training curriculum offered by DNSco and Men & Mice, which is based upon the protocol itself.
