Free.fr SERVFAIL

Looks like the entire domain of free.fr doesn’t resolve. Here it is with www . free . fr, but webmail . free . fr doesn’t work either, etc…

$ dig www.free.fr @1.1.1.1

This is the same issue as 1.1.1.1 cannot resolve videolan.org, the free.fr nameservers are not responding in Toronto area and I wasn’t able to reach anyone who could fix it. I’ve added a workaround for free.fr domain for now.

OK, thanks ! I can confirm that it resolves now.
