5:115 AE (UNITED-ARAB-EMIRATES)
UAE Network Information Center (UAEnic), announces the replacement of the existing domain name category .co.ae with the new category
.ae. For example, abc.co.ae will be replaced with abc.ae
One of the methods used by the new 128-bit DNS software to...no longer need root servers...is to use key, 2-letter, TLDs to provide
**hints** to where other TLD clusters are located. As one example, for TLDs that begin with the letters A to E, the .AE TLD can be
used as a place to register the TLD name to provide a pointer to the TLD cluster. When the InterNAT software encounters a TLD it
does not know, it can ask the AE servers if they know where that TLD cluster is located. This helps to move traffic off of **all**
root servers and provides one more method for a TLD cluster operator (Registry) to make sure they can be easily located, without a
single point of failure or censorship such as the legacy root servers.
