Redesigning the RIPE NCC Website: Search Improvements

This article is one in a series that explains the main changes we're making to the RIPE NCC website as part of the website redesign project. Here, we take a look at the ways in which we've already improved the search functionality on www.ripe.net, as well as additional improvements that will come into effect when the redesigned site launches in a few weeks' time.

Redesigning the RIPE NCC Website: Template and Visual Design

This article is the third in a series that explains the main changes we're making to the RIPE NCC website as part of the website redesign project. Now that we're just a few days away from the launch on 13 April, we wanted to give you a sneak peek of the new visual design, and explain some of the back-end changes we made in order to support it.

Upgrading the Software Behind RIPE Labs

We are updating the technology behind RIPE Labs and www.ripe.net. If you are a frequent RIPE Labs editor, you will discover some great new features! At the same time, we also documented our experiences with upgrading to the new version to provide feedback to the Plone community.

RIPE Mailing Lists and DMARC

The RIPE community has existed for almost 30 years. In all that time, one of the chief missions of RIPE has been to provide a platform that allows network operators and others interested in networking to coordinate their activities and agree on best current practices. Therefore, since day one, it has been essential that we have in place functioning channels along which to carry out effective communication.


At the RIPE NCC, we run over 100 mailing lists for RIPE NCC members and the RIPE Community. We have been monitoring the DMARC situation very closely to make sure we provide the best solution to our users and the community.

How We're Improving Content on ripe.net

We've been reviewing user actions on www.ripe.net and acting on your feedback. As we go into a new year, ripe.net is getting a fresh look with a cleaner homepage, a customisable dashboard and content that is more user-centric!

A User-Driven Homepage: Coming Soon to a Computer Near You!

We're changing our homepage so that you are in control of the content that you want to see. It is now cleaner and we have new features including a customisable dashboard with widgets, and the ability to bookmark RIPE NCC pages that are useful to you.
