What is OpenNIC?


OpenNIC is a user controlled Network Information Center offering a democratic, non-national, alternative to the traditional Top-Level Domain registries. In case you were looking for them, traditonal TLDs are currently served by Network Solutions with policies set by ICANN.

Use of OpenNIC DNS servers, will allow host name resolution in the Legacy U.S. Government DNS, OpenNIC operated namespaces, and those namespaces with which the OpenNIC has peering agreements.

This wiki...


...is an access controlled work area for OpenNIC working groups (WGs). In accordance with OpenNIC's open access philosophy, working group notes are world-readable. Write access to the various WG areas is however limited only to participants (in order to provide a high signal-to-noise ratio). For more information on how to use this wiki, see: WikiCategory first, and then: CategoryWiki.

How you can help...


The main thing anyone can do to help is to become a member. Sign up at http://www.opennicproject.org/members/ and join our mailing list! The other great thing you can do to help is to spread the word, even if you don't use our TLDs our DNS network is still the quickest around!

To volunteer assistance with any of these tasks, please enter your name on the relevant project page, then make contact with other team members! These and other 'side projects' are listed at OpenNIC Projects. Once the above tasks are near completion, more will be posted. NB Project areas are currently limited in order to allow timeous forward progress. Should you perchance have ideas for future projects though, please, do get in touch. We are always open to suggestions.
