This first fork of Bitcoin was the first blockchain-based DNS system. It uses a .bit top-level domain name.

 

Features

  • Users can register, renew, and transfer a domain as a traditional DNS does. Registration is through a registrar or with some namecoins.
  • Users must install separate software to resolve a .bit domain name because .bit is not officially registered in the current DNS system. The resolution, in this case, requires installing a browser extension.

Previously OneName, their decentralized DNS creates a decentralized website on a Bitcoin blockchain. It removes the third parties managing ID systems, databases, and web servers. It combines DNS with a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).

 

Features

  • Register a name and control it only as its owner.
  • No attacks, DNS service denials, hacking, or censorships of individual websites.

Their domain name service integrates blockchain-based DNS with the traditional DNS system. Thus it allows you to combine the benefits of both.

 

Features

  • Allows owners of traditional domains who can prove it with a DNSSEC registration, to transfer it to the blockchain DNS service.
  • Register a domain using a .eth extension via an auction process.
  • It combines the advantages of blockchain-based and non-blockchain DNS.
  • .kred, .xyz and .luxe, .pid extensions.
  • The top domain sold for $3.5 million, 300,000 registrations, $28 million in deposits after 18 months.

Emercoin as an alternative to DNS

 

Emercoin uses a Proof of Stake system that combines both proofs of work and proof of ownership systems. Emercoin provides a distributed DNS called EMCDNS EMCSSL, free Secure Sockets Layer certificates ENUMER – a distributed database for storing VOIP addresses on a Decentralized torrent tracker.
