Njalla : A privacy-aware domain registration service wants to save Catalonia

Njalla is a domain registrar based in Nevisan island in the Caribbean – and they aspire to be a different type of domain name registration service.

According to their web site at Njal.la, the registrar protects its customers from “ferocious domain predators.”

“Njalla was started because we couldn’t find a domain name service that we ourselves wanted to use. Our goals are to be caring about privacy, simple and flexible. When you buy a domain in our system, we’re actually purchasing it for ourselves. We will be the actual owners of the domain, it’s not an ownership by proxy as found with all other providers. However, you will still have the full control over the domain name. You can either use our information, our nameservers or you can go with your custom data.”

Domain owners that accept these terms, can enjoy extra shield and privacy, as long as there are no laws being broken in the process.

Njalla was formed by Peter Sunde, anti-censorship activist and co-founder of The Pirate Bay.

Yesterday, Peter Sunde announced that he will be providing anonymous hosting and domain names to any Catalan sites being shut down by the Spanish authorities; Catalonia will hold an independence referendum on October 1st.

Sunde is no longer associated with The Pirate Bay, and was caustic about GoDaddy in one of his statements, saying:

“The whole point of having a cooperation to have uncensored hosting for people who really need it. No GoDaddy-style where you get hung out to dry if there’s a problem.”

Spanish authorities took over the .CAT domains Referendum.CAT and Ref1Oct.CAT and display the seizure information as seen below:
