I've started a dns serveur on 178.32.31.41 which resolves .bit domains.

There is a small web page to list current valid domains (which have set an ip address in the correct json format : use " and not ') :
http://namecoin.bitcoin-contact.org/

To use it, just modify your dns server and add this ip.
Here is a good starting page on how to modify your dns servers (just put my ip instead of the opennic one :p) :
http://wiki.opennicproject.org/ConfiguringYourComputer

Current domains (it will timeout if you don't have added my dns server) :
- bluishcoder.bit
- tester.bit
- toys.bit

If someone want to donate me some namecoins, i'd be gratefull (i generate and generate but i still get nothing...)

Hm.  The URLs you provided were timing out, although I'm very interested in hosting the Bitcoin Bulletin at a .bit address.  So I'll try again tonight.  Grin

Ah, sorry, I was in a rush and didn't notice that.  Yes, this will have to wait until a later time for me, but I'll still want to test it out.  Smiley

So I can just add that as my, say, third dns server, and it'll resolve the addresses?

So I added it as my third name server, and it didn't work. It worked when I put it in the front of the list.

Does this mean I'm using you for all my dns? I don't think I want that.

I'm on Ubuntu, using NetworkManager

you only use 1 dns server. all the other ones are "backups", in case if your primary one fails.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

@khal The nameserver works great for me!  Thank you!  Where can I send the Namecoin donation to?

BTW, I updated my router to use your nameserver.  It is also resolving OpenNIC domains right?  Here is how I configured my DD-WRT router: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/OpenDNS

If you don't want to use someone elses DNS server you can set up dnsmasq on ubuntu pretty easily to serve namecoin domains and fall back to your normal DNS. This approach uses a small program I wote to generate secondary hosts file for namecoin domains. Instructions here: http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=6017.msg97623#msg97623

Thanks. You can send to the address of my bitcoin identity in my sign.
I've added support for ns delegation too (thanks gsan for the help on bind) as it was on my priority list.
So, you can now manage your domains like you do it before, by using this free dns manager https://xname.org for example.

OpenNIC domains will be added very soon.

You must purchase some namecoin (some people are selling on the forum) and register it with the namecoin software (which is a cloned version of bitcoin adapted for domains).



I've just added all OpenNIC domains support : * .bbs, * .free, * .fur, * .geek, * .gopher, * .indy, * .ing, * .null, * .oss, * .micro

Id like to run the client and mine... but I can only find the source code. Possible to download a namecoin client for Windows somewhere? Thanks for help.

There is some people asking on how to register domains, so i've added some instructions on the page : http://namecoin.bitcoin-contact.org/#reg
One solution is to mine, the other is to buy namecoins with bitcoins, so, i've added the two namecoins sellers : dmp1ce & grue (ask me if you want to be added).

The whole thread is here : http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=6017.0
But i don't know if you'll find what you want.

It seems to be installing as bitcoin and bitcoind

I'm using the latest git clone

How do I fix this?

Use 'make' instead of 'make -f makefile.xxx'.
Then you'll need to configure a diffrent RPC port in the config file (in ~/.namecoin/bitcoin.conf), and set a password too.
