There is a first-come-first-served registrar for .pin subdomain which is a history service by the gnunet project.

Any zone owner can potentially act as a zone registrar and sell (or give away) subdomains.

We are currently working on a new registrar service that will also be integrated with GNU Taler to allow for payments.

Owning a GNUnet zone is free (since a zone is created by creating a public/private key pair).

The question is, if users can reach your zone.
To understand this problem space a bit better, I urge you to read:

Section 7.1. Start Zones:


Section 9.5 Zone Management:

from the spec.

I do not know what you mean by "omit IP addresses". A registrar would likely just delegate to your zone (public key). Nothing to do with A or AAAA records, or IP addresses. (Think NS records in DNS)

Hello GNUnet Developers,

I was wondering since the last build, if the GNUnet Name System has a domain 
name registrar service (would owning a GNUnet domain name be free [probably 
not, but thought it wouldn't hurt to ask])? And if that service can omit 
certain information such as IPv4 and IPv6 IP addresses?
