What is ONS?
ONS is a project aimed at providing a completely free and open source alternative to the World Wide Web. Although we see this as useful, we do understand that it is probably going to mainly appeal to nerds like ourselves!
Roughly how does it work?
ONS is formed from three parts: The browser, which is used by the client; the server, which is used by anyone who wants to host pages on the ONS system; and FNS, which is the custom protocol that serves the same purpose as DNS serves on the WWW.
What will my money be used for?
Your money will go towards vital infrastructure that is needed for ONS to run smoothly. The main thing that your money will go towards is a server to run the FNS server software on (Currently, we are running it on a Raspberry Pi!)
I can see that you offer access to a git repository as a reward. What on earth is that?
Git is a popular version control protocol that is used by developers around the world. It allows us to restrict who can view certain parts of the project, and also allows us to track changes that we make.
