Freename Overview

freename overview is the leading TLD and Domains platform in Web 3. Users can register and mint their own customized Web3 TLDs. They empower users by giving them access to royalties and trademarks to protect their digital identity. Owning a Freename Web 3 TLD entitles users to a 50% passive income for every domain purchased on that TLD.

What are Web 3 Domain Registrars?

A domain registrar is someone who is accredited and regulated by ICANN (Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers). They provide domains for anyone to buy. Some Web 2 registrars include, and Web 3 registrars are essentially the same, with one key difference. They use blockchain-based technology.

Why does this make them different? Because they are not subject to the problems faced by Web 2 registrars. ICANN is a centralized authority that maintains, standardizes, and regulates the whole domain industry. This has led to some problems. For example excessive costs (registering a TLD for 10 years would cost you upwards of $185,000), scalability (with their restrictions), and centralization issues. More on this here.

Web 3 offers a more equitable solution, both to the registrars and end users. This is because of blockchain technology. seeks to harness the potential of blockchain technology to reach to goals of:

Decentralization of power. ICANN’s scope of influence does not affect Web 3 domains.

Customizability. Most Web 2 domains are taken or simply not available. With Web 3 domains, you can mint, create and manage your own personalized domains without ICANN imposing rules and regulations.

Freedom. You have complete authority over your domains and you don’t have to pay renewal fees. This is a big difference between and Web 2 registrars.

Income. Since you have full ownership of your domains, you can sell on a secondary market without any middleman taking a cut. also provides royalties to empower end users. More on this later. removes the complexity of the cryptocurrency market. They standardize Web 3 usernames to facilitate easier and more efficient payments. This helps facilitate flexibility. For example, your client asks to pay you using crypto. With, you can accept payments using the address “yourbusiness.2themoon” instead of a 42-character hexadecimal string such as “0xDC25EF3F5B8A177998338A2ADA83795FBA2D695E”. Think of your domain as your bank account address and your 42-character string as your IBAN.

Freename also addresses the problems of centralization, security, and empowerment of users. Their multichain approach allows them to rely on peer-to-peer networks that don’t need a central body to verify (or issue) domain names. There is no central authority like ICANN intervening. also offers royalty licenses to empower users financially. Passive income is becoming more applicable to people all around the world. Freename allows you to mint any domain name of your choice. You can mint and register the TLD of your choice along as there is no prior registration. You can also get paid 50% of the transaction fee every time another user buys a domain on your TLD!

What is a TLD and why are they important?

A Top-Level Domain (TLD) is everything that comes after the final dot of a domain name. The Second Level Domain (SLD) is everything that comes before the dot. For example, “Freename” would be the SLD/domain name, and “.io” would be the TLD.

Business names and websites act as a gateway to their products and brand identities. Our current economy is built on an online presence. Having an online presence increases your potential customer base and makes your content available to the world.

Earning royalties is a big advantage for owning Web 3 TLDs. Another advantage to owning your own TLD is your brand identity. There are third-party branded domain extensions like “.eth” and “.sol”. But would this make sense for your brand’s identity? Another key advantage is that it is a smart investment. It is only about time before the world adopts cryptocurrencies. Having a TLD such as “.metaverse” could be used by a lot of companies looking to accept cryptocurrencies as payment. For example “XYZcarwash.metaverse” or “ABChospital.metaverse”. Owning this Web 3 TLD would entitle you to 50% of passive income every time a company registered using your TLD. also charges no fees. You buy your TLD/ domain and you own it forever. There is no ICANN charging renewal fees and transaction fees. is taking a stance and empowering users by solving the problems Web 2 registrars couldn’t. They offer highly customizable TLDs and domains, that are secure and offer passive income. They also offer trademarks for users to protect their TLDs even further.

Why do i Need a Wallet?

Freename domains are blockchain-based assets and would be minted and stored using a wallet. Users are required to mint and manage their domains using a Metamask or Coinbase-configured wallet. It must be a non-custodial wallet, meaning that one must own the private keys to the wallet in order to approve transactions via a signature.

To benefit from Freename Web 3 domains/TLDs, you must have a wallet. This is because Web 3 domains/TLDs are blockchain-based assets. Users can mint and manage their domains using Metamask or Coinbase-configured wallets.

Are the Domains Associated with ICANN?

ICANN does not manage domains. believes their TLDs/domains must allow customers to operate independently. wants to build a utility infrastructure, allowing customers to use their services for valuable and generative purposes. By leveraging blockchain technology, Freename Web 3 domains/TLDs have no centralized authority imposing rules and regulations.

What is a Wallet?

Every blockchain user requires a wallet in order to interact with the network. A wallet is essentially an account on the blockchain where transactions can be sent and received. It is also where one can store blockchain assets such as cryptocurrency or NFTs (non-fungible tokens). There is no personal information associated with a wallet and none is required to create one. A wallet consists of a public key and a private key. The public key can be safely shared with anyone who wishes to send assets to the corresponding wallet, however, the private key should not be shared and is the key to accessing the wallet in the event where access is lost or to create another instance.

A crypto wallet (cryptocurrency wallet) is software or hardware that enables users to store and use cryptocurrency. With cryptocurrencies, there isn’t any actual money to carry around in a wallet. They exist on the blockchain. Similarly to traditional bank transfers, crypto wallets enable users to send and receive cryptocurrencies, NFTs, etc.

A wallet consists of a public key and a private key. To receive assets, you share your public key associated with your wallet. You should NEVER share your private key.

Is Minting the same as Buying?

Purchasing a TLD (or domain) on Freename and minting it on the blockchain are two distinct steps. When you purchase a TLD (or domain), the transaction is recorded in Freename’s database and not on the blockchain. Minting a TLD (or domain) on the blockchain requires a second step: log into the user’s personal area, select the TLD (or domain) and press “mint TLD” (or domain): done! Don’t worry, once you have purchased a Freename domain, no one can take it away from you!

No. Buying and Minting a TLD/domain are two different things.**

Buying **is the process of recording a transaction on Freename’s database and not on the blockchain.

Minting is the process of pushing a user’s domain from data onto the public ledger of a blockchain and into a user’s wallet. Giving the user full control over the TLD/domain.

It is very easy to mint a domain/TLD once you purchase it. Simply:

  • Log into your personal area

  • Press “mint TLD” (or domain)

What is Domain Minting?

Minting is the process of publishing a Freename domain (or TLD) on the blockchain via your wallet to gain full custody of the domain. This means that the only person that has control over the domain (or TLD) is the person who controls (has access to) the wallet.

Minting is the process of pushing a user’s domain from data onto the public ledger of a blockchain and into a user’s wallet. Giving the user full ownership over the domain.
