[tor-relays] Free Domain for Tor Nodes

This whole idea came after I got oh too many various alerts from my service
I decide to buy a domain that is not associated directly with my other
domains and found torexitnode.net free.
I looked at Atlas and torstatus.blutmagie.de and saw that many exit nodes
don't have a domain at all.
Anyhow, I'll be working on something in the next week or so and when I'm
ready for testing I'll ping the list again.
