Current price is:
<250 namecoins: 0.010... BTC per Namecoin, or 100 Namecoins for 1 btc.
250+ namecoins: 0.008 BTC per Namecoin, or 125 Namecoins for 1 btc.
(prices increased  05/31/2011 due to higher difficulty)

what's namecoin?
Quote
Namecoin is a naming system based on bitcoin with a few modifications.  It is inspired by the bitdns discussion and recent failures of the DNS.

The quick facts:

* This is a new blockchain, separate from the main Bitcoin chain
* Name/value pairs are stored in the blockchain attached to coins
* Names are acquired through new transaction types - new, first-update and update
* Names expire after 12000 blocks unless renewed with an update
* No two unexpired names can be identical
* Block validation is extended to reject transactions that do not follow the above rules
* The code is here: https://github.com/vinced/namecoin

Initially, two name spaces are defined - DNS and personal.  The DNS name space is targetted towards a new distributed TLD, possibly .bit.

how can I check domain names availability ?

If you don't own the private keys, you don't own the coins.

you can use name_scan to see if the domain you want is already registered.

I setup a page which dumps the names here: http://webpagedeveloper.me/name_scan.php

BTW, I'll also trade 50 nc for 1 btc.

Haha, I didn't get them all!  Don't worry though, I'll be trading them once the names are transferable.

I would also like an explanation or a link to one, I didn't understand the developer's words.

it's basically a DNS service based on bitcoin. you can use "coins" to register and renew domain names.

So I could theoretically register 75 domains?  Could you give a human readable description?

Namecoin works like bitcoin. Instead of mining bitcoins you mine namecoins. Namecoin adds some new commands to register, change the setting of, and list domains. It costs around 50 namecoins to buy a domain. Once bought you can point it to an IP address. You need to run special programs to make your software use these domains but once you do you can then look them up under the '.bit' domain. For example, someone bought 'tester' for about 50 namecoins. Now, with the lookup software installed, I can got to http://tester.bit in my browser and it works.

Does the client work on Windows?
Can I mine "a lot" per day still?

I can access namecoin sites with a namecoin DNS.

bluishcoder.bit works!

I will take you up on your offer as soon as I can manage to run the Namecoin software on Windows without a .dll error.  I am actively working on fixing that so... >_>

Alright, so running namecoind.exe in the same folder as %appdata%\bitcoin seems to let it run without errors at least, though that's a minor continuation of progress.  Trying to make this work under Windows but the cross-platform issues are a bit difficult.

EDIT: yes, WinXP since my Vista laptop died beyond explanation.  It's probably as simple as running regsvr32.exe on the appropriate DLL file.

I'm not getting any .dll errors. use this binary: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2882613/Namecoin/namecoind.exe , it has the dependencies statically linked, so no dll errors!
