.BIT

There's been some interest from members here in .bit domains.

FYI dotbit.me are now accepting paypal payments and are offering half price on registrations until the end of January.

Re: .BIT

If you use registrars for .bit like the one above, then they technically own and register the domain, and not you?

Yes, this is true. You can transfer the domains away at any time for free, but I guess there is an element of trust involved that they won't run off with them in the meantime!

Re: .BIT

dotbit.me makes it easier, sure, but you have to trust them and they charge a big premium (even at half price) over doing it yourself.

Anyone else picked up some IDN .bits?

Re: .BIT

I see more value in IDN TLDs using the distributed dsn namecoin provides, rather than .bit itself. Any word on registering actual TLDs using namecoin?

Re: .BIT

Well really the d/ namespace in Namecoin does not dictate any particular TLD: names are stored in the blockchain without a TLD. ".bit" has just been chosen by convention, but one can make a DNS server with any TLD for it they like.

If names are stored in the blockchain without a TLD, is it possible to add one?

Yes, in simplistic terms you can think of Namecoin as an arbitrary key/value store, so you can put anything you like in it. This gives it many potential applications, domains just being one of them.

You can create your own namespaces, adding TLDs, whatever you like and Namecoin itself won't care, but what you then need is software (DNS servers, etc.) built around it to utilize that.

Currently most of the interest lies in the d/ namespace so that's what people are building their software around.
