Internet & Networking Today, the non-profit organization in charge of the Internet's fundamental naming structure finally began migrating its root servers to IP version 6. ICANN today is finally beginning the long, and perhaps arduous, process of upgrading its root servers to incorporate IPv6 records. Though the updated protocol has been in the post-development phase for over ten years, it has seen very limited uptake outside of the enterprise sector.

Whose root servers?

The root servers are all operated independently. ICANN runs one of the 13 root servers (l.root-servers.net). Shocking as it might be to some, ICANN has no control over what the other root servers do or do not do.
