Interesting: we’ve received pushback on our submission of small-web.org to the Public Suffix List maintained as a public resource by Mozilla because our not-for-profit organisation is too small?

This must be a misunderstanding.

Good news: small-web.org has been merged onto the Public Suffix List. So when it launches, anyone will be able to create their own (Small Web) site at <domain>.small-web.org just like at any Top-Level Domain (like .com, .org., etc.)

(Only—unlike commercial domains—we can do it without charging for domains. And it takes seconds to set up. Otherwise, it will work like any other domain so cookies, etc., will be scoped to your domain for security, etc.)

@aral Thanks, Aral.
Quick stupid question from a newbie: does it works like some kind of DDNS service or something? Or is it a TLD one can choose when setting up a domain in a hosting?

@aral
You're doing great!

What is your plan for the abuses that may happen with such a service? Will you block some domains from being registered if it points to illegal/immoral content?

@aral
Are there some idiot-proof instructions available for me to follow to get a small-web.org domain name?
Thanksin advance

@mark Hi Mark, it will be an entirely seamless process the moment we launch. Still working on it :)
