Find Namecoin Block Explorer…and today I’m super thrilled to explore this concept of a decentralized web. When it comes to domains and the principle of a decentralized web, many of you ask me, “Christian, do I really own my domain name outright?” Or, “Exist stipulations attached to my registration?” The response is no, you do not own your domain name outright, however policies and policies usually protect the domain from being drawn from you. At the end of the day,
it is entirely possible for your domain name to be seized. You’re renting it from the domain windows registry and they have full control over what occurs with your domain. I’ve discussed this sanctioned monopoly system before which you can find out more about in my “Domain frequently asked question” video however you do not own your domain name. It’s actually impossible to own a traditional domain name. You may have noticed, I said traditional domain name because a business’s working on a new kind of domain that you can own outright. I had the chance to talk to Brad Kam the co-founder of Unstoppable Domains to talk more about the future of the decentralized web. And no this video is not sponsored, I simply believed this was truly, really cool what Unstoppable Domains was doing. – So Unstoppable Domains constructs domain on blockchains and this is various than a standard domain since the domain name is kept by you, the user inside of your cryptocurrency wallet. So it’s stored inside of your wallet, similar to a cryptocurrency would be. And what this does is it implies that nobody else can move the domain around, take it away from you, make updates to the domain, anything. Unstoppable Domains can’t do it, nobody can do it.
– Right now, when you go to purchase a domain name you do not really own it. You’re leasing it from a domain registrar like Namecheap and they’re renting it at wholesale pricing from the domain registry. If it’s a.com domain you’re relying on the computer system registry not to change costs or take the domain away from you in the future.
– Of course a new type of domain name indicates that you can’t register.com,. For now, Unstoppable Domains is catering to crypto enthusiasts. It’s a totally various domain name system, indicating you can’t type craylor.crypto into your web browser and load it or can you?
In this case, a domain name. Now I’m not claiming to understand all the technical specifics of this brand-new domain system. To be truthful, I still have problem with a few of the principles of cryptocurrency, and I’m not a professional in this area. Today we’re not focusing as much on the technical side of NFT domains however more on what it indicates for the future of the web. The biggest traffic jam is that internet web browsers Google Chrome, Safari, and Microsoft Edge have actually not yet implemented support for NFT domains. Unstoppable Domains has a solution for this, thanks to Cloudflare adding assistance for their domains.
