What would you guys think about having a DNS environment that is provided by librehosters?
I spend some thoughts on it and personally I would really think it would be pretty cool to do, so people can use a free DNS-service that offers transparency and also using libre and ethical software.
I can imagine that such service would attract people that is a part of the Librehosters network and people that want a free DNS-service without having to turn to big providers like Cloudflare.
A DNS service would need:
Somekind of webUI (afraid.org do have a simple bu fully usable UI, inspiration?)
Servers located on several places
DNSSEC support - this can be “solved” by OpenDNSSEC. But that alone would not make it to work out of the box. If we would automate it - we need to write an EPP compatible software that takes care of that.
A DNS service would not need:
- Anycast - even if it would be nice, but it is not important
- A fancy UI
A DNS service would be cool if it had:
- An API or support for dynamic DNS
What is your thoughts about this? Is this a good idea or a bad idea?
Would it even make sense to have such service when there is already plenty of providers out there?
