This is an advance notice that there is a scheduled change to the IPv6

The current IP addresses for the L.ROOT-SERVERS.NET service are:

service will be:

The change will be implemented on the root zone on March 23, 2016

resolvers root "hints² files ASAP.

New hints files will be available at the usual URLs once the
change has been formally executed on March 23, 2016:
