Patrik F?ltstr?m asks questions on the relationship between a ccTLD and a Country. He also asks “will for example any (none?) of ccTLD operators (servers) sustain a denial of service attack of a scale similar to the attack on the root servers? What can ccTLD operators do to resist the malicious attacks? Should this be discussed?” F?ltstr?m notes while many ccTLD (and TLD) operators can withstand a denial of service attack, those lower down the DNS hierarchy are not so well placed to withstand such an attack and that maybe we shouldn’t be worried that the root servers can’t withstand an attack.
