The domain seizures by the United States authorities in recent days and upcoming legislation that could make similar takeovers even easier in the future, have inspired a group of enthusiasts to come up with a new, decentralized and BitTorrent-powered DNS system. This system will exchange DNS information through peer-to-peer transfers and will work with a new .p2p domain extension.

In a direct response to the domain seizures by US authorities during the last few days, a group of established enthusiasts have started working on a DNS system that can’t be touched by any governmental institution.

Ironically, considering the seizure of the Torrent-Finder meta-search engine domain, the new DNS system will be partly powered by BitTorrent.  Learn more.

  1. This wasn’t a name seizure, it was an IP address seizure. You know, the base 256 4 digit number that a DNS spits out after resolving up a domain name. How ya gonna stop that?

  2. Is the p2p DNS still in work? Their website hasn’t been updated since early Feb 2011.
