ISC has operated F-Root, one of the world’s thirteen root name servers, since 1994. We have this service deployed around the world in 55 locations to offer fast, reliable access even in otherwise underserved parts of the world. We have well over a thousand peers. F-Root is supported with the help of multi-year donations in kind from many service providers and other
F-Root is distributed using “anycast” technology all around the world, with 54 operational locations, carrying 25% of the root name server traffic, and operating an average 16,000 queries per second. ISC is pleased to announce that a new F-Root DNS Root node has returned to MyIX, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, sponsored by Persatuan Pendendali Internet Malaysia. Previously, ISC had a node in MyIX from 2008 to mid-2013, but with this new sponsorship and new equipment, F-Root has returned to MyIX in May 2014 to serve the Malaysian and regional Internet community. ISC eagerly accepts peering requests at the new MyIX node as well as exchange points all over the globe. Please see http://www.isc.org/f-root/ for more information.
