Hosting a K-root node
The RIPE NCC is open to considering requests to host a K-root node in ISPs and other networks.
If your organisation is interested in hosting a K-root node, we kindly ask you to read all of the following documents before you apply:
- Description of the K-root hosted node architecture
- Commonly asked questions about hosting a K-root hosted node
- Hardware and network requirements for hosting a K-root node
If we receive a large number of requests at once, we will plan the deployment of these hosted nodes in batches. We will use the information from our RIPE Atlas measurements to prioritise those locations where the biggest improvement to K-root reachability can be expected, with a focus on the RIPE NCC service region. More information about this can be found in this RIPE Labs article.
After reading all of the above-mentioned documents, you can begin the K-root node host application process.
