HootSuite has compiled a handy diagram on .Ly traffic
We’ve mapped out the relationship between the Libyan domain name servers and the rest of the Internet in an infographic to help clear up any confusion about how data travels from servers to your screen.
* The .Ly domain suffix is ultimately controlled by ICANN who can revoke access from the Libyan government and assume a caretaker role if needed
* Our root name servers are hosted in North America, and the only way your data would pass through a Libyan server is if you lived in Libya
* HootSuite pays a very small fee (less than $50/yr) for the registration which means there is no significant material contribution to the government
