ShofarDomain is undergoing a reboot. We hope to return in 2018.
Our principles and goals remain the same.

ShofarDomain - Notes
ShofarDomain is the driving force behind rootless domain technology. Much effort has been made over the years to dethrone ICANN is the primary provider for domain names on the Internet. The weakness of the single provider is the control they hold and many, including the UN, are taking that control.
Rather than trying to replace ICANN, rootless domains provides a DNS resolver that allows the user to work as normal with ICANN domains while also having access to those served by the alternative roots, and rootless domains.
This is a direct assault on the multi-billion dollar domain market that keeps its cash cow going by using a rental model. Rootless domains allow for a one-time sale model and then passes full irrevocable control to the new owner.
By using digital signature technology, domain ownership cannot be seized, even by governments.
Private domains for families or organizations can then coexist with the global system while remaining private.
A potential standalone business is to provide DNS resolution services that eliminate tracking. Many ISPs record all DNS traffic and this can be used as a significant monitoring device. There are also services provided to limit access to unacceptable sites, such as pornography. A DNS provider can offer the service for a small annual fee. This is a fairly modest effort technically.
A DNS resolution service can provide numerous filtering services as desired by the client. A filter could return redirected IPs for domains in a certain group, such as pornography.
