this.x--nmc.bit. is a special domain name generated by ncdns if it isn't given any other name to use as the canonical nameserver name for the bit. zone.

A zone must have one or more nameservers, and nameservers must be identified by a name, not an IP. this.x--nmc.bit. is generated to function as a name referenced by the single NS record returned by ncdns for the bit. zone, and resolves to an IP at which ncdns is listening.

Thanks for the info.

UI already in my TODO list. It will come on bitname.ru
My first try to develop such tool.
First version is now available at page bitname.ru => dnsZone
Still have things to do but it already can help to create simple zone using web-interface.

UPDATE on 03.09.2017
I commit new version of whois service php script.
Looks like you are doing excellent work here :) :) :) Is there a chance you also open-source your bitname.ru statistics scripts?


By the way, in case you run into technical issues also have a look at Calum McAlinden's Namecoin To Zonefile software.
Calum runs the .bit resolver part of opennicproject.org (a sort of "semi-decentralized" solution as it is the only .bit resolver at opennicproject).

Thank you for evaluating my efforts. I just trying to help namecoin community.

You mean script that gathering data for the graphs ? Am I understood right ?
If it so it`s pretty simple and based on whois service code :) with few changes - putting data into MySQL table. If you want this code I can put it to the github too.
Now I`am working at domain names statistics script. I want to do graph that can show how many domain names was at that date, how many of them was expired at that date and how many of them resolving/working.
Because for today .bit have 72320 domain names but we can`t understand now how many of them really used/working.

Ok. I will look.
cassini wrote: as it is the only .bit resolver at opennicproject
No, you wrong :) There are my selver also => ns5.ru.dns.opennic.glue

Code: Select all

# dig -t A nf.bit @ns5.ru.dns.opennic.glue +short
94.23.252.190
So it`s not the only one. But how long it will be there I can`t say now. I still thinking about stay in that project or quit.
For now I can say that after I tried to register own TLD domain name at opennic I was completly misundertood the purposes of opennic project before I join it. Now the purposes became more clear for me and they are not to have many TLD`s. I can`t understand that because on my opinion the DNS structure is for TLD carring or it is completely useless.
Also some people in the community just don`t like Russians. :)

Any chance you could enable HTTPS on bitname.ru? I can't view the site right now because I have HTTPS Everywhere configured to redirect all HTTP connections to HTTPS.

This would indeed be useful information to have. In related work, Jonas has been doing some experiments with making the YaCy search engine crawl .bit websites, which would also give us useful information on how much real-world usage there is of .bit.

I've commented publicly about OpenNIC before; basically my evaluation is that OpenNIC's apparent goal (to be a more democratic, less politicized equivalent of ICANN) is only achievable as long as OpenNIC remains small and under the radar, and if OpenNIC ever becomes as large as ICANN is now, it's probably going to look very similar to present-day ICANN in terms of political issues. I think Namecoin has a chance of avoiding that fate specifically because Namecoin is a decentralized consensus system, and therefore enforces rules that are very difficult to change in order to accommodate political pressure. I wish OpenNIC the best and I hope they prove me wrong, but I'm not optimistic on their long-term prognosis. (For more about what I think about this, see my namecoin.org news post prior to my ICANN58 talk, as well as the video of the talk I gave at ICANN58's EIT panel.)

Ofc yes :) If I get certificate for it. I will think about how to obtain it.
Or it can be self signed ?
biolizard89 wrote:This would indeed be useful information to have.
Yep, I think the same :) that`s why it is in my todo list. But in my TODO list no search engine for .bit content. Content search engine really hard work, really hard.

Same here.

- whois service for .bit: whois.bitname.ru or whois.bitname.bit
- dns servers for .bit: dns1.bitname.ru dns2.bitname.ru or dns1.bitname.bit dns2.bitname.bit
- bit domains statistics

Thanks.

I'm not sure how quickly I'll be able to give any useful feedback for your site, since I don't speak any Russian, and both Google Translate and Bing Translator are almost completely unusable in my current Tor Browser setup. This is, of course, not your fault -- Russian is just as valid as English for building a website. I just won't be able to easily give much feedback on it. Anyway, from what I can tell, it looks like you're doing excellent work. :)
