more about the Internet and DNS
Internet user (you) is using a Name-Server to
find the domain names on the Internet.
Mostly that is the Name-Server of your Internet Service Provider
(ISP). All Name-Servers of
ISPs use a Root-Server to find Top Level Domains (TLDs).
|| Most providers still use the old ICANN Root. ICANN decides when and what new TLDs are added to the ICANN
Root-Servers. As we all know, this has proven to lead
to an enormous chaos and shortage of available TLDs and
That is why TLD.NAME is registering TLD in an other Root-Server
system. The Public-Root. This root has the capacity
to include all the ICANN gTLDs as well as many more new pTLDs and cTLDs.
||The INAIC Council decides what new TLDs are added to the Public Root-Servers. Because
the Public-Root is capable of supporting many more TLDs
than the ICANN Root, the shortage of available TLDs
and domain names is something that will be soon belong to the past.
Conclusion: However many providers still use the limited ICANN
Root, Public-Root is
capable of resolving many more Internet domains and is often referred to as the
next generation Internet root.
