MaraDNS is a completely free open-source package that anyone can download,
use, and look at or modify the source code of without restriction. It
is available under an open-source license
For MaraDNS development to continue, contributions from users are needed.
I was able to raise funds during the November 2011 pledge for donations and
have enough funds to give MaraDNS more attention until mid-March, 2012.
How to contribute
To contribute to MaraDNS, please click on the "Support MaraDNS development"
button in the upper right hand corner, and make a PayPal donation.
Every $100 of donations I receive gives the MaraDNS community another
month where I will provide basic bug-fix and mailing list support for
MaraDNS and Deadwood.
If one wishes to have a particular feature implemented for MaraDNS,
before sending me money, send
me a private email and we can discuss rates.
Contributions for the November 2011 pledge drive come from:
- Nicholas Bamber
- Bradley D. Thornton
Over the years, contributions have also come from:
- WebConquest, who hosted
MaraDNS' web page for nearly a decade, and who continues to host
MaraDNS' mailing list.

- Chirado OHG, a German consulting firm
specializing in the design, implementation, and maintenance of secure
IT systems and processes that comply with ISO 27001.
- XeroBank, a source of Internet
Privacy software, who have funded support for giving out IPs when
a DNS host does not exist or a remote DNS server does not reply.
