  Root server addresses

  As of February 2013, there are 13 root name servers specified, with
  names in the form letter.root-servers.net, where letter ranges from A
  to M. This does not mean there are 13 physical servers; each operator
  uses redundant computer equipment to provide reliable service even if
  failure of hardware or software occurs. Additionally, nine of the
  servers operate in multiple geographical locations using a routing
  technique called anycast addressing, providing increased performance
  and even more fault tolerance.
