Namecoin is useless because you have to do all the DNS setup to make it work. It is even more useless because even if you have it set up, you have no idea what domain name to type in or where a domain name will take you (98% of those registered go nowhere).

So here's what you do - make a search engine. Set up a machine with the Namecoin DNS, and spider all the registered .bit addresses for web servers. You can include IP address links in the results and most sites (that don't use virtual hosts) will work without needing the user to install Namecoin DNS. You are now cool.

Useful Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_crawler#Open-source_crawlers

Note: There is a link to gee.bit on the namecoin site (176.9.26.234), calling it a .bit search engine, but it doesn't work and neither does www.masterpool.eu, which is where the IP appears to be.

I'm not doing it. I was going to make a .bit site for a procrastinator's support group, but I haven't gotten around to it.

I've already thought of a '.bit' proxy website - http://www.bitviewer.net/index.php - and I'm getting it made into a proxy website search engine too plus a list of popular good '.bit' websites will eventually be listed on the proxy website homepage as well.

An easy way of using .bit is currently developed and almost ready to use : http://dot-bit.org/How_To_Install_Dns_Suffix

I hope that masterpool has not closed gee.bit at the same time as his pool... but if he closed the server... yes, we need a new search engine !

IF .bit ever amounts to anything you can rest assure that Google will become the Google of .bit  Tongue

I'm already 10% shareholder and working for CoinConnect - http://www.coinconnect.org/ - a kind of Facebook competitor.  I also thought of the idea behind the first '.bit' proxy search engine '.bit' websites list website - http://www.bitviewer.net/  Although great thanks to Cablepair for building it all I just come up with the initial idea behind the proxy website.  Internet start-ups have to start somewhere those two projects and my other projects are going to hopefully work towards me making a living from Bitcoin  Smiley

Cool ideas, I wish the best of luck to you.

Cheers man but I couldn't have done any of it without Cablepair.  We just met at the right time as I can help him with his many projects and he can help realize my brainstom of the '.bit' proxy search engine website which he solely built and designed from my initial ruff ideas.

Check out the .bit Search Engine at http://bitse.bit or http://bitse.uberbills.com

Here's some fun stats:

6478 out of 67904 (10%) are active websites.

Of those active websites, 3884 (59%) are parked.

1,528 (39%) of those parked are redirects to the porn website, ClipHunter.

For fun I am running a rescan of all 74,305 registered domains. How many of those do you think will be redirects to ClipHunter?  Wink

Is your script open source and available ? :p

It would be interesting to automatically generate a list of interesting .bit websites, purged from porn, parked, copy of copy of copies, etc.

I do this already for bitSE, anything marked Parked in my script is not displayed. Unfortunately sites with blank or improper meta data is displayed and I have no way for automating unless I scrape all HTML.

Hi,

I've recently implemented this feature on dotbit.me under the "Surf .Bit" tab. You'll find a list of all domain names currently running a webserver on port 80 (and soon 443 as well).

When multiple domains link to the same IP I group them together to keep the list manageable (domains parked are thus listed just once).

Use the links to to the .bit proxy (icon in front of domain) if your browser is not setup to handle .bit domains.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions on how it can be improved.

Thanks,
Tagide

I like your design, very simple and well organized! The way Ive been detecting "parked" websites is by comparing the meta data to other scanned sites' meta data. If any matches, it gets marked as parked. This way, people hosting multiple websites from one IP can get their website listed, as long as the meta data is different from all other websites.
