In case you maintain a mail server or plan to do so in the future, please read this.

There's an organization by the name of "UCEPROTECT", which often wrongly blocklists ASNs for spam. If you end up on their denylist, do not pay them.
This organization is run by a single person running a money extortion scheme. The only way to get unblocked is to pay money. No other reputable DNS blocklist does this.

Furthermore, they engage in abusive behaviour, and the single person behind this organization is misogynistic (proof: web.archive.org/web/2021030218uceprotect.org/cart00neys/2021).

my DNS services 

Need a public DNS resolver?

Servers:

  • Germany, dns.kescher.at / unova.kescher.at: 161.97.171.39 / 2a02:c206:2052:2580::1
  • Austria, dns.kescher.at / kalos.kescher.at (AT): 89.58.18.85 / 2a0a:4cc0:0:f31::1

Services offered:

  • unencrypted DNS at port 53 (UDP, TCP)
  • DNS-over-TLS at port 853 (TCP)
  • DNS-over-HTTPS at port 443 (including HTTP/3 support for QUIC/UDP)

The unencrypted port is mitigating amplification attacks by truncating the response and forcing TCP.

If you have an Android device and you are not using a VPN, you can use the "Private DNS" feature and set the hostname to dns.kescher.at.

If you use Unbound as your local resolver, you can include the following in your config:

forward-zone:
name: "."
forward-first: no
forward-tls-upstream: yes
forward-addr: 2a0a:4cc0:0:f31::1@853#kalos.kescher.at
forward-addr: 89.58.18.85@853#kalos.kescher.at
forward-addr: 2a02:c206:2052:2580::1@853#unova.kescher.at
forward-addr: 161.97.171.39@853#unova.kescher.at

In case you are still looking for a homeserver to try out Matrix with, matrix.kescher.at currently has open registrations (you can also try using a web client if you don't want to install a client for now)

polyglot.city closing down 

I've come to the conclusion that I'm not up to keeping polyglot.city running any more.

The cost of hosting is quadrupling, which either requires me to organize ongoing fundraising to cover the extra costs or to migrate the instance to another host. I have no capacity to do either in my current stress and mental situation.

Thus polyglot.city will close down on 31/10/2022.

1/2
