Frequently Asked Questions
What is an mnTLD?
An mnTLD, or Micronational Top-Level Domain, is a TLD specifically designed for micronations. Similar to a ccTLD, which are in use by standardized countries, mnTLDs are operated by a micronational government and provide registrations to their government, businesses, and citizens. They are also occasionally open to public registrations.
If you operate a micronational government, contact us to see how our registry services can develop the tools your nation needs in the online world.
Will my domain be accessible on OpenNIC, ICANN, ...?
Your mnTLD will be automatically peered with OpenNIC and FreeNIC, as well as ModernTLD/NationDNS’s alternative DNS group of networks. If you want your domain peered with another DNS root, you will have to arrange those terms, but we will be happy to assist you in that endeavour.
Your mnTLD will not be accessible on the ICANN network in almost all cases. This means that your citizens and/or end-users will either need to change their computer configurations to ModernTLD’s servers, or OpenNIC’s DNS servers in order to access your mnTLD.
What is OpenNIC?
OpenNIC is a user owned and controlled Network Information Center offering a democratic, non-national, alternative to the traditional Top-Level Domain registries. Users of OpenNIC DNS servers, in addition to resolving host names in the legacy ICANN DNS, can resolve host names in the OpenNIC operated namespaces with which we have peering agreements.
ModernTLD currently provides services and registrations for the “.o” TLD on the OpenNIC network, with more TLDs in the works.
While OpenNIC may seem confusing to many new users, it’s quite simple to setup and start browsing. By following some simple guides you can be up and running in no time!
What if I don't run a micronation?
NationDNS provides DNS, Registry, and Web Hosting services exclusively to micronations. If you want to operate a gTLD for your organization or business, or if you wish to develop a ccTLD for your country on the ICANN namespace, ModernTLD provides many other services outside of the NationDNS platform that can meet your needs.
What They’re Saying
