Domains 5 is a toolkit for self-publishing on the P2P web, introducing the ideas and tools behind a decentralized internet and peer-to-peer website hosting via a booklet accompaniment to its online counterpart, domains-5.com. Leading the reader on the journey is The Server, The Browser, The Network, The Data, The User, and The Protocol; repurposed François Rabelais woodcut characters from The Drolatic Dreams of Pantagruel (1565). The booklet includes an introductory essay on the context of a P2P web on today’s platform-dominated internet ecosystem, reproductions of an informational text on the practicality of a peer-to-peer internet, and links to hands-on tools and resources (namely Beaker Browser) to begin experimenting with the P2P web yourself.
