Distributed DNS (DDNS) Prototype Release

DDNS is a P2P software that aims to build a decentralized, distributed DNS. The domain name service (DNS) is a worldwide distributed database, which still has centralized elements. This project elaborates the feasibility of a decentralized, distributed DNS (DDNS). For that purpose a peer to peer distributed hash table is used which is similar to the Kademlia protocol.

This release is a prototype that is available for public testing. But be aware, this is only a prototype that has known limitations. The system is not stable yet, do not rely on your stored names in the DDNS network, they might disappear. Any feedback, suggestions, etc. are welcome. For more details, see http://distributeddns.sourceforge.net/
