Central DNS Servers Mapped

Ever wonder where the central, root, base nodes of the Internet are located? Well here’s a map to help you out! At this scale, there looks like there’s only 7, but if you zoom in you’ll notice that quite a few are very close to one another. The Washington DC area has 5 alone!

It’s also interesting to note that one of the root servers is located in a city named Root. I kinda live for those little funny things 🙂
