This site is dedicated to the proposition, that one day, DNS will NOT be available. Due to malicious hackers, UN intervention (so called "Net Neutrality" laws or treaties, "Internet Fairness Doctrines", or other MISmanagement interventions (content firewalls), or just plain old fashioned WAR, if the DNS system goes down, or your sites are blocked, even though the whole internet isn't, you're down...but maybe not. With a new twist on an old technology, you won't even feel a glitch. If you DOWNLOAD our products, you will have your own private DNS SERVER, which taken together, are impervious to DNS problems.
The only problem with a local DNS is that it does not get automatic updates. If a website you know and love like WRH changes their IP (as we did a few weeks back) you will have to manually change the local hosts file.
But as a backup to a "terrorist" (nudge nudge) take-down of DNS, this might be handy to hang onto!
