ISNIC is the Icelandic domain registrar. They deal with the .is ccTLD.
They have slightly non-standard requirements for the DNS of .is
domains. See http://www.isnic.is/en/domain/req for details.
I usually host my DNS using Gandi. But they aren't on ISNIC's list of
approved DNS suppliers, so when I bought fkth.is a couple of years
ago, I ended up at dnspark.com, using their free service.
Over the last few weeks I've been getting email from ISNIC telling me
that my domain is in breach of the requirements and that if I don't
fix in the next four weeks they will suspect my domain. They helpfully

Putting fkth.is in that gives the errors:
Test results for "FNS1.DNSPARK.NET":
The IP address 2001:1850:1:0:107:0:0:d of nameserver fns1.dnspark.net
is missing its PTR record or has an incorrect PTR record.
Test results for "FNS2.DNSPARK.NET":
These are the nameservers for dnspark, so it's nothing that I have
changed. Either dnspark have recently changed the config of these
nameservers or ISNIC have only just got round to checking them.
I've tried to talk to dnspark about this, but they won't give me any
support as I'm on using a free server (yes, I know, you get what you
Does anyone else own .is domains? Where do you host your DNS for them?
Have you never had problems like this?
[Who is seriously considering replacing fkth.is with fkth.at]
