DNS in a FreedomBox network
For different reasons, it might be useful to have other ways to contact a FreedomBox than using Tor's hidden service onion names, or plain IP. DNS is the first protocol that comes to mind when it comes to that kind of problem.
DNS is an important piece of the Internet, yet it is certainly centralized. As it has been seen in the past, it is thus easy to shutdown a domain and make it difficult for people to find the content it was hosting.
FreedomBox owners might also be people that don't have a reliable internet access, need to move their box often, or whose IP address is changed often.
The FreedomBox network should thus be able to support DNS and provide a reliable way for owners of a FreedomBox to have an accessible domain name for their box, as well as a way to update their domain information in a secure way. Efforts should be made so that this service is hard to shutdown, or domain names hard to remove.
