Root-Server locations

The users of the Internet, who all (more or less) make free choices for how they configure
their systems, what they do when using them, what ISPs they use, and in the end, what
Root-Servers they look to for resolution of the TLDs in the addresses of other systems
that they want to connect with.

Currently there are 2 major Root Systems in use:

The ICANN Root resolves only a limited amount of the TLDs that are currently available on the Internet. ICANN is under the auspices of the US Government.
Most of the ICANN Root-Servers are located in the USA. Click here to see the locations of the ICANN Root-Servers.
The Public-Root is resolving al TLDs that are made publicly available and is maintained by the INAIC, an independent not-for-profit organization.
The Public-Root servers are located dispersed across the globe. Click here to see the locations of the Public-Root Servers.
The Point of Presence (POP) of a Root-Server is important to ISPs and Internet users. The closer to the POP, the faster the response time.
