The .frogans TLD is the top-level domain delegated by ICANN to the OP3FT, a dedicated, non-profit standards developing organization whose purpose is to hold, promote, protect and ensure the progress of the Frogans technology.

The purpose of the Frogans technology is to introduce Frogans, a new medium for publishing content and services on the Internet in the form of Frogans sites. From a technical standpoint, this medium is designed as a new generic software layer running on top of the original Internet infrastructure, alongside existing generic software layers such as E-mail and the World Wide Web. For more information, see the Frogans Technology Overview.

As discussed in the case study published by ICANN:

3. What makes the .frogans TLD stand out from other TLDs?

The .frogans TLD stands out from other TLDs because it makes possible a major innovation for publishing content and services on the Internet, while other TLDs, including the new gTLDs introduced into the DNS Root Zone since 2013, are mainly intended to provide creative domain names for accessing Web sites.

The .frogans TLD domain names are only used to address the computers dedicated to the functioning and administration of Frogans as a medium. This use is inspired by the use of the .net TLD, as originally intended and specified by Internet pioneer Jon Postel in RFC 1591 (March 1994):

NET - This domain is intended to hold only the computers of network providers, that is the NIC and NOC computers, the administrative computers, and the network node computers. The customers of the network provider would have domain names of their own (not in the NET TLD).
