Alt root

Alternative domain name system¹



Alt-rooted means that something other than just the priced name system is in use.[1]

Beginning in 2019, a migration of virtually all content in my dev space, with the exception of a few necessary public pages,
is in process: all content is going to be alt-routed, either same named, ICANN TLD -> .dom, or the ICANN/IANA TLD just dropped .

As used here it means a system of autonomous peers with allocation of the TLDs from a central authority here.

A reasonable effort for a free service level is committed that just works by:

adding the following name servers, which are non-recursive, in desired order to your active resolver(s):

  • ns0.meansofproduction.biz
  • ns1.meansofproduction.biz

or their ip addresses if your resolver requires that.

Paid ²[2] users have access to recursion and additional services up to continuous live maintenance by intelligent agency. This is done in a framework of migration of one or many prexisting clean³ or used linux instances into our dockerized OS abstraction "MCP". The abstraction implements a single system image with the referenced intelligent systems support for an overall Domain Control Program ("DCP").

The "sameboat.live" name is not significant and will be changed when it expires in 2021.

As used here, the background operation of the public priced name systems are assumed as needed, excluded where prohibited, e.g. for privacy or security. Our system is constructed using the standard unix networking software and forms a superspace of the public name system with these properties:

  • Individual operators of the system determine which TLDs they recognize. The system administered here only allocates the TLDs FCFS to operators, it doesn't have the intent of acting as a sole authoritative source even for the .dom name, which operators may override to establish cooperating alt roots. The TLD operators in essence agree to a common real TLD space which they may present internally differently, but which starts with the common public systems plus a single reserved name: ".dom" for their private/peer namespace.
  • IPV6 and TLS are defaults, 4 and plain text special cases.
  • A rich default common systems application environment which operators may optionally use is provided in which all users are identified and at least in principle, traceable.

³ "clean" means a newly formatted host OS instance; Our modifications of various elements such as letsencrypt included in the SaaS, woven through various process such as SSO, registration, etc.
