A micronational corporate top level university (mcTLU) is a type of internet domain generally used by a micronational entity. Several micronations reserve mccTLDs through alternative DNS roots, mainly due to high costs on the ICANN DNS root.
Micronational DNS roots
Several micronations are known to have operated or operate their own DNS roots. The largest and well-known of them all is the Cesidian Root.
The Cesidian Root is an alternative DNS root which claims to be a "global internet" which benefits micronations and other similar entities to "utlize this resource for reasons of independence and/or national security. This root claims to have twenty seven servers and offers over 400 domains and custom TLDs.
Non-micronational DNS roots
OpenNIC is possibly the most widely used alternative DNS root, which operates the .micro domain, specifically for micronations. It lists itself as an alternative to ICANN and its registries.
There are a few ccTLDs from micronations that are both proposed and/or operational within alternative DNS roots.
