Internet Routing

Definition - What does Internet Routing mean?

Internet routing is the process of transmitting and routing IP packets over the Internet between two or more nodes.

It is the same as standard routing procedures but incorporates packet routing techniques and processes on external networks or those that are hosted or Internet enabled. It utilizes IP-based networks, but mainly those which are publicly accessible such as that of ISPs.

Techopedia explains Internet Routing

Internet routers route packets from internal networks to external Internet-based routers. Internet routing enables a user to access web pages and other data stored on a remote website. Internet routing involves broadcasting or sending a message from an internal network to an external network using Internet-based networks. Such routing generally involves sending a message that travels between several Internet service providers (ISP) or autonomous systems (AS) before reaching the destination.
