Added NL Flokinet resolver to Wiki

I added to the List of Public DNS Servers
I think a unicast DNS is preferable, so that’s why I think the NL server would be useful

nl.resolv.flokinet.net

IPv4: 185.246.188.51
IPv6: 2a06:1700:3:11::1

Seems like FLOKINET is a Romania based DNS provider,
their Romania based resolver was already in the Wiki,
I wonder what this note means, what would be the difference when they switch to anycast :

ro.resolv.flokinet.net and resolv.flokinet.net (resolv.flokinet.net will be migrated to anycast soon)

Hi,

thank you for taking care of this.

Actually, FlokiNET is an offshore hosting provider. I recently read somewhere they are about to offer services out of the Netherlands as well - currently, they colocate (I believe) in datacenters in Romania, Finland and Iceland.

Thanks, and best regards,
Peter Müller

Yes, I assume the NL… server is the one you mentioned “out of the Netherlands”

I am also wondering if the NL… service is unicast?

Hi,

yes, that seems to be the case. Any traceroutes trace back to the Serverius datacenter in Meppen, NL:
