OpenNIC Compatible Webspace Providers

  • Provider needs to accept free or paid sign-ups using an automated or semi-automated sign-up form, no closed/invite-only groups
  • Paid-only providers need to have “paid-only” included in the notes section
  • Providers should not require manual server-side setup, things should work “out of the box”

Vercel 2021-12-14 by luqaska Works fine with the CNAME and A records, but I didn't try with NS ones
Tested at Interserver.net, should work as well with any CPanel hosting 2019-04-29 by antihierarchic Interserver.net itself doesn't allow to create non-ICANN domains through its own DNS manager, but: log into CPanel - add Domain (A record is created, check CPanel Zone editor), then add this A record for the domain in OpenNic registration panel - tested and works with be.libre (.dyn, .geek, .gopher, .indy, .libre, .oss, .parody -all exept .pirate - don't know why)
