How to Run Your Own Top-Level Domain...for FREE!

Your Own TLDAnyone can register a .com or a .org, but what if you could run your own top-level domain? Why have server1.mydomain.com when you could just have server1.mydomain? And why my-domain? Why not use .apple, .android, .tesla, or .nekki?

Back in March we had a thread on LowEndTalk about how to do this and there were several excellent suggestions on how to accomplish this.  I took @FrankZ’s named suggestion and fired up “test.lowendbox” and “prod.lowendbox” on my home network as an example.

We’ve published a video on LowEndBoxTV that will walk you through step-by-step how to do this on your own network!  Enjoy.

    Strange video. Whole point of register domain name in registers and not use “myserver.mydomain” or anything like that is 1) access from anywhere 2) get certificates

      pkiaas.io will let you get certificates, you just gotta trust your root cert
      And if you want it to be accessible by more people just use OpenDNS. Come on man.
