Root Server, IP Address, Home Page

 11:17 pm on Jun 9, 2004 (gmt 0)


I just bought my first root server in hopes of avoiding penalties by search engines. I've been assigned an IP address and I have already created a few web sites.

The problem is, the IP Home Page is blank (shows under construction). What should I put on it? Should I add links to all other sites...what do most people do?

Thank you for any time to respond.

You may have an alternative definition of 'root server' but to most people it means one of the 13 name servers that contain authoritative data for the very top of the Domain Name System (DNS) hierarchy... and if you have just bought one of those then you're a lucky, lucky guy.

Assuming you haven't, could you perhaps rephrase your question? :-)

I meant a server with full (total control) to the root directory. I think I had my question answered by someone else; they said the IP page doesn't really matter.

They are right, what appears on the ip doesn't matter anymore.
