SUPPORT ALTERNATIVE DNS EDUCATION: VISIT AND SHOP AT OUR SPONSOR'S WEBSITES
You may have noticed some banner ads appearing on the ADNS website as well
as THE.EARTH. Every time you click on one of these ads and visit these
merchants, and every time you buy something from them, a percentage of the
sale goes to Alternative DNS Education. ADNS will use all of these proceeds
to purchase advertising to enlighten both web surfers.
The more you visit and shop, the more people will become educated about
alternative DNS and the more hits your alternative DNS website will get.
THE.EARTH - THE IMPROVEMENTS KEEP COMING
ADNS operates the first Alternative DNS web portal in the world. Located
at http://The.EARTH, this site is only accessible if your machine can see
the entire web via alternative root servers.
Last month, we separated the content into individual pages: US News, World
News, Science and Technology, Lifestyle, Health, Sports and Environment.
This month, we are going to continue adding dynamic content and links to
hundreds of sites around the world. We will also work on improving the site
layout to increase usability.
The.EARTH will soon host a special page with nothing but links to alternative
DNS websites. If you would like a link to your site placed on THE.EARTH,
send e-mail to info@ADNS.NET with the details.
