Run a Root-Server
The Maximal number of Root-Servers in a root system is 13. Public-Root is still looking for volunteers to run a Root Server in certain parts of the world.

How to volunteer your organization or company?
All Root-Servers in the world are operated by volunteers. The Public-Root Root-Servers too. Public-Root is setting up a global Root Server System with 13 Master Root-Servers and many instances (mirrors) to support all providers world-wide. The Public-Root Server Advisory Committee (PRSAC) co-ordinates the geographical deployment, distribution and testing of root systems in the Public DNS.

To become a Root Operator you will need:

  • A spare Linux Server.
  • Redundant data line.
  • One available IP number.
  • Knowledge about Linux Servers.
  • Knowledge about DNS.
  • To be available in case of emergencies.

If you are located in an area with many Internet Users and ISPs and no Root-Server in the vicinity, please consider to become a Public-Root Operator. A Public-Root operator may not be commercially involved with INAIC, Public-Root, UN1D, TLD.NAME, UCDA or any other public Internet body. If you would like to volunteer to run a Root-Server, please submit your request below.
