Since 2000, Netnod has operated i.root-servers.net, the first root server to be located outside of the United States. In this blogpost, Netnod’s Lars-Johan Liman takes us through the 30 year history of the I-root server with a focus on some of the early challenges.
Netnod provides critical infrastructure support ranging from interconnection services and Internet Exchanges to time services, DNS services and root server operations. With a worldwide reputation for its services and the expertise of its staff, Netnod ensures a stable and secure Internet for the Nordics and beyond. Established in 1996 as a neutral and independent Internet infrastructure organisation, Netnod is fully owned by the non-profit foundation TU-stiftelsen (Stiftelsen för Telematikens utveckling).
