Alternate DNS listing service created to replace the DNS currently in use. Unlike ICANN, alternative registrar OpenNIC (http://www.opennic.unrated.net/) is designed to operate in a manner which is user owned and controlled. Entries placed in Openic may be searched (http://paradox.homeip.net/htdig/).
The original idea behind this project was first discussed at Kuro5hin.
