Join the Network VIP community

Apply to NVIP

Network VIP (NVIP) is the place to connect with other DNS professionals.

Hosted by BlueCat Networks, NVIP offers one of the best spaces on Slack for networking professionals to, well, network. The NVIP community is more than 800 members strong (and growing!).

In NVIP, you’ll find peer-to-peer collaboration, product troubleshooting help, and discussions about topics of interest. Whether you want to talk about BlueCat Address Manager configurations, another vendor’s product, or what meat you love to grill, NVIP is open to it all.

As an NVIP member, you will also receive exclusive invites to monthly community events and panel discussions with industry experts.

How do I become an NVIP?

Easy! All are welcome to apply to join the fun we’re having in NVIP.

However, we do believe in having the right people in this community—namely, those that are passionate about DNS and networking. We’re on the lookout for people who are passionate about DNS and willing to share their knowledge about the industry and help their colleagues by giving back. Or maybe you’re new to DNS and are just curious to learn more—we want you, too. In all cases, this is not a community to sell you things. And there is no requirement for you to be a BlueCat customer.

Unlike other communities, we do not limit when you can apply. Our door is always open.
