Cesidian Root has root servers in the US again
The Cesidian Root (CRt), UMMOA-GEO's global Internet, has root servers in the United States again.
Over the years of its existence, and because of changes in its sponsors' funding streams, and in the Cesidian Root's Officer makeup, the Cesidian Root used to have quite a number of root servers in North America, thus including the United States, but now we seem to have found a kind of Buddhist middle way between root server scarcity and root server excess.
Currently the Cesidian Root has two root servers in the United States, and soon we hope to have a third.
All told, the Cesidian Root now has root servers in the Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania regions.
The Cesidian Root Europe DNS Servers page shows that we are now using 16 IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4) addresses, as well as 20 IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) addresses. Except for the two test root servers, all Cesidian Root root servers resolve on ports 53 and 3001, and all are DNSSEC-enabled. You can always check the status of all CRt servers at the URL below.
Cesidian Root (CRt) is an accredited observer organisation in Paradiplomatic Affairs (PDA), and is an NGO in Consultative Status with the Organization of Emerging African States (OEAS). On 2 March 2012, the Cesidian Root was featured in an article by Fox News about the "World Wide Weird".
The Cesidian Root, and its special Raspberry Pi test server, running in a data centre in Helsingborg, Sweden, are also listed on the UMMOA.technology website, and two Cesidian Root Officers are listed at the UMMOA.pro website.
By the way, this year in September will be the Cesidian Root's 10th Anniversary! We hope to celebrate in some special way this record of achievement and continuity.
Special thanks to the Hon. Kai Kellner, UMMOA Minister of Information Technology and Infrastructure, and the Cesidian Root's Master Root Officer, and to all Cesidian Root Officers for their hard work and dedication.
