OpenNIC offers domains like .fur and .dyn. It seems you can't access those domains unless you point them to DNS resolutions, which is bad because if you have a site.dyn people will not be able to access it normally.

My question is if people would be able to send you e-mails to your yourself@site.dyn and vice-versa without any configuration.

Do you have MX records pointing to .dyn domain? –  George Jun 11 '12 at 16:16
Not yet, was considering if worth having a .dyn domain, since as I commented the domains can't be accessed by people without configuration, but if people could e-mail normally to .dyn domains at least for e-mails it sounds good to me. But I couldn't find this information in their site or faqs so I asked here. I'm aware that I would need to have MX set up, my doubt is whether that'd be enough. –  Strapakowsky Jun 12 '12 at 2:56
You'll need to configure your MX records and A Host records at whomever you bought the domain from. It's pretty self explanatory once you login to the account. –  George Jun 12 '12 at 16:29
