Root domain name servers are a crucial part of
Internet technology and infrastructure. The INAIC
and the Public-Root in an effort to standardize
the operations of root name servers have published
official guidelines to operators.
The guidelines titled “Public-Root
Name Server Operational Requirements”
were published this January 17th, 2005. The guidelines
contain recommendations and standards applicable
to the operation of Public-Root name servers.
The INAIC and the Public-Root welcome comments
and contributions to these guidelines. The Internet
community’s participation in the development
of root standards is necessary to the robust operation
of the Public-Root. Please send your comments
or interest in participating to firstname.lastname@example.org.
