Description

The Bitseed Namcoin DNS Server Edition of the Bitseed Personal Server is a pre-configured DNS Server with Namcoin .bit resolution.  The Server uses open source software developed by the okTurtles Foundation.  The key elements are:

  • Namecoin – stores names and associated addresses
  • DNSChain – resolves names on the blockchain, and forwards standard DNS requests to the legacy DNS system
  • PowerDNS – a widely used open source DNS server

A full description of the okTurtles DNSChain solution, as well as source code, can be found on github.

Using the Server

  2. Allow a few hours for namecoin blockchain to sync
