ZeroNet added Namecoin .bit support

Post by phelix » Thu Jul 09, 2015 1:28 pm

lol, just ran across this on the ZeroNet homepage: http://zeronet.io/

Interesting how they resolve:
Currently we have a domain-resolver site (ZeroName: 1Name2NXVi1RDPDgf5617UoW7xA6YrhM9F) that holds all registered namecoin registered domains that has zeronet data in a simple json file.

If you want to access a site by domain the Zeroname plugin uses this file (data/1Name2NXVi1RDPDgf5617UoW7xA6YrhM9F/data/names.json) to get the site's address.

The site's data file is updated by bots that constantly checking new namecoin blocks for new domain registrations/updates.

So you have to trust the Zeroname site privatekey owner, but its fast, protects you from man-in-middle attacks and it doesn't sends your visited sites to the internet.

Later if the Namecoin devs finishes the lightwieght client we can also support that or adding support of local namecoind would not be hard.

There is an alternative version that uses DnsChain servers to resolve the domains, but the default solution is faster because you have the domains stored locally.

Maybe it's not yet perfectly secure but it seems to work well. I like it :mrgreen:

http://127.0.0.1:43110/goto.bit

Assuming the owner of goto.bit configured a site to use .bit.
The details are in the docs (https://zeronet.readthedocs.org/en/latest/faq/).
