.bit is a decentralized and anonymous top level domain name [read more].

Here is the first website to register .bit domains, directly with bitcoins, without configuration :
http://register.dot-bit.org/

It allows you to :
- register a .bit domain (or not, you can only take the hosting or the redirect)
- redirect it to an url :
=> yourdomain.bit will be redirected to youdomain.otherTLD
- use a web hosting :
=> you will browse directly on yourdomain.bit

Prices :
- new domain : 0.1 BTC, renewal included for 1 year
- redirect : included with a new domain (0.1BTC otherwise)
- web hosting : from 0.1 to 0.5BTC/month

It's still in beta, but functional, so, report me any problem.

TODO :
- allow to transfer domain
- put some text/details

Any comments ?

So...  domain names that are totally invisible to the rest of the internet?  And you need to renew them every 12 weeks?

What's not to love?

People are using them :
- for the fun to use a new tld, to pay something with bitcoins, etc
- for their decentralized feature

There is a bounty of 3500BTC for that, so, there must be some interest :p


First domain ready : http://scroll.bit

Edit : second one - http://wally.bit

I'm pretty sure it'll take more than $30,000 to get ICANN approval as a new TLD.

That is not the aim of the project, and it would be like installing the wolf in sheep's... We would give the power to cut/seize a domain to ICANN, which we just want to avoid :p.
Of course, it'll remain few used for a long time, and we are aware of it. But, the possibility will exist, and that's all that is important. Will we reach a critical mass ? Nobody can say it...

The benefit of .bit is simple:


You own your .bit domain names.


That cannot be said of any other TLD, not even of the other alternative DNSs such as OpenNIC.

The closest thing to ownership you can achieve with those is a long term lease but you will always be at the whim of the true owners.

You have full control over your .bit domain names, the same way you have full control over your Bitcoins.  What gives someone control over a .bit domain is a private key and nothing else.

Now, simple question: how can people possibly visit a .bit website?

Easy for you, just use one of the DNS servers that support it.

The problem is getting other people to use them.

The problem is getting other people to use them.
Currently, you have two solutions to browse .bit domains :
- use an existing DNS server that support .bit (or create your own, scripts will be available in some weeks)
- use a proxy (a local one is better, of course) (not enough documented yet)

Fixed a upper/lower case bug : names are converted to IDNA and then lowercase (thanks gsan for the bug report :p).
Added some questions/answers on homepage. More info later on hosting.

Heh, that one's mine. Is it redirecting for anyone else? For me I'm just getting a not found error (already set up DNS settings).

It will redirect for everybody who has configured a DNS server which support .bit domains. Maybe you tried to display it before it was configured and you have some cache ?
