Public-Root

The Public-Root is a necessary public service that recognizes end users as the official point of control on the Internet. The Internet was designed to prevent the centralized control of resources by any group, organization or government.

The Public-Root is the only Domain Name System (DNS) service that provides open public access to the creation of Top-Level Domain (TLD) resources and infrastructure. The Public-Root is a leader in the creation and expansion of the DNS.

TLD.NAME works closely with the Public-Root and the Internet Names Authorization & Information Center (INAIC) to facilitate the creation of DNS resources that help organizations manage their communications in a rapidly changing and growing Internet.

Who controls the Internet?
Almost all transactions on the Internet are dependent on Name Servers (DNS) to translate domain names to numbers. These translations use Name Servers to point user computers to web sites. The program that connects to these Name Servers and does the translations is called a resolver. Every computer connected to the Internet uses a resolver to navigate.

Users in turn have direct control over their resolvers. They can modify the pointers which provide DNS service. This places you - YES YOU - the user in charge of the navigation process. Few users realize they have this control. Every computer allows users to modify their DNS and take over navigational control.

At the present time most computers point to the DNS Servers of their Internet Service Providers (ISPs). Most users are unaware that they have the option to choose their own DNS Provider. There are several Public DNS Providers. Most Public DNS Providers offer DNS services free of charge. Click here to find out how to upgrade your PC to see all domains on the Internet.

The second level of control in the DNS is at the TLD level. The Internet is a collection of networks. In fact we usually refer to it as the "Network of Networks". The Public-Root allows network operators the ability to build TLD infrastructure to define their networks and facilitate communications and security.

The last level of control in the DNS is the root. This function is a trust provided by the Public-Root. The Public-Root maintains the root zone database of Name Servers and TLDs in co-operation with the The Internet Names Authorization and Information Center (INAIC) on behalf of all Internet users.

It’s easy to see that control of the Internet is an inverse pyramid. At the top of the pyramid you have users in control, next networks and finally the root. That’s how the Internet was built. The Public-Root is the first root network to recognize user rights.

These rights do not originate from law. They are coded into the technical specifications and protocols that provide for communications between computers systems and networks. The Public-Root is the first root system to recognize these rights and facilitates the inclusion of individuals and organizations in the root.

The Public-Root, together with many other public consulting bodies, ensure an open and transparent access to the complete database of Internet names, including the creation of TLD infrastructure. If your organization requires a TLD, please feel free to use TLD.NAME's excellent services to establish your presence on the next generation Internet.
