THE Brunei Darussalam Network Information Centre Sdn Bhd (BNNIC) informed Internet users who rely on ‘.bn’ domain names that a server migration will take place on December 18, 2014.
According to a press release, BNNIC and Telekom Brunei Berhad (TelBru) are migrating the ‘.bn’ data from the existing servers to new servers to accommodate future capacity and better service for ‘.bn’ users.
BNNIC and TelBru said they take all appropriate measures to avoid any downtime.
However, there could be a possibility that some ‘.bn’ domains might experience temporary disruptions in the early hours of December 18. Affected users should contact TelBru’s Customer Care line 111.
This migration exercise is one of the key steps to allow BNNIC to take on the role of regulating the registration, administration and management of domain names in Brunei Darussalam.
This exercise will also allow industry players to become an accredited registrar for ‘.bn’ domain names and the flexibility to offer other value-added services besides domain name registration. With this, corporations, enterprises, as well as Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) will have a choice of registrars to register their ‘.bn’ addresses.
