Root name servers are the servers at the root of the Domain Name System (DNS) hierarchy. Read a more detailed explanation of the DNS root servers here.

DNS
Our DNSNODE service is the leading anycast and unicast slave service for TLDs and partners.
Based on one of the most resilient, robust, and advanced networks in the world, DNSNODE has been developed with the same expertise we use to operate i-root and advise the UN, the EU and the Swedish government on DNS best practise.

DNS
Distributed across the world, i.root-servers.net responds to several hundred million DNS queries a day. To further improve the robustness and availability of the I-root service, Netnod continuously expands the I-root anycast network.

I-root
The entry point to the DNS database – its root – is a service provided from hundreds of servers across the globe, operated by 12 designated expert teams. Netnod is one of them. Read more about our commitment to the Internet community.
