This is gonna sound too weird 'cause my basics arent set right... I did read the wikipedia entries, but would appreciate if someone could help my understanind abit...
What really prevents me from setting up an internet machine which say, recognizes all "http://abcde.widget" entries in the browser? yeah yeah, icann regulates all that, but:
(a) what's really stopping me - what "technically" needs to happen for that to work
(b) if i do everything in (a) and dont get permission from icaann, because i JUST want to use if it for a certain group of people on the INTERNET, what settings do they need to have? Meaning, if some ppl in the world are interested in getting to http://weirdsite.widget, what settings do they need to change in their browser? I'm assuming its the DNS.
(c) If the IP addres of MY DNS server is what they're using, can they type a .widget site and reach a location of my choice?
(d) is my assumption correct that i can setup a DNS server with BIND9 and all that and do the above?
Do you guys see some problems with the above?
