Welcome to the Public-Root
      The Public-Root is an international, not-for-profit, federation of independent root operators and community
  stakeholders. Root operators can be corporations, chartered organizations or government agencies.
Membership in the Public-Root is open to all organizations willing to support open access to root infrastructure.
Members must have the required technical skills and resources to support a root system.

Public root operators support the Internet community by providing uniform access to data elements that support the resolution of Top-Level Domains (TLDs) in the domain name system (DNS). Public root operators are responsible for the operation and technical management of the Internet's DNS root system.

Public-Root includes a worldwide network of thirteen master root servers. The Public-Root system maintains and distributes authoritative root zone files. The thirteen master root servers propagate the root zone files to affiliated root systems.

Stakeholders in the Public-Root set standards by consensus. These standards define the operational specifications of Public-Root systems. These specifications form the basis of the contractual obligation binding root server operators as trustees of the Public-Root. To be affiliated with the Public-Root operators must guarantee the stable technical operation
of their DNS. To volunteer your organization or company please contact the Public-Root Server Advisory Committee (PRSAC). PRSAC co-ordinates the geographical deployment, distribution, and testing of root systems in the Public DNS.
