The following is a guest post from Virtual Root about joining the i2Coalition.
Virtual Root®, a company behind TLDWatch.com has joined the Internet Infrastructure Coalition.
Our services are dedicated to monitoring and trending the activity and operations of the Domain Name System (DNS) and Top Level Domains (TLDs) that are delegated in the root. While we are not directly involved in the infrastructure “bolts and nuts” of the internet, we support the position(s) and mission of the i2Coalition where the “…continued growth of the Internet is vital for growing an environment of innovation globally and domestically.” We are quite in-tune with the policy activities around the DNS and we are increasingly getting involved with the larger issues and topics related to Internet governance. Both areas are dynamic and evolve every day, and common interest groups are vital to being fully informed to all the issues. Virtual Root looks forward to collaborating with the spectrum of great companies that have already joined i2Coalition.
The Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition) supports those who build the nuts and bolts of the Internet, and we treat it like the noble profession that it is. We believe the continued growth of the Internet is vital for growing an environment of innovation and seek to engage in ways to foster success of the Internet and Internet infrastructure industry. We seek to influence decision makers to weigh decisions on whether they are good or bad for the Internet economy and its foundational industries. In short, we seek to foster growth within the Internet infrastructure industry by driving others to harness the Internet’s full potential.

About Virtual Root:
Virtual Root LLC was founded 2011 in Scottsdale, Arizona but our reach is global. Our team has been formally involved with the Internet only since 2008, but our backgrounds have always been technology focused through a variety of services supporting Fortune 100 companies. Upon discovering the DNS industry, we’ve been addicted ever since. Beginning in 2011, we created several data stores that collect and process data from several sources and then compare and inventory it daily to detect meaningful changes or alert to threshold exceptions. Via TLDWatch we then trend that data through open and customized visual solutions that are meaningful and actionable; anything less is just data. We evolve our platform each day with a roadmap to add further complimentary data sources.
