Utilities of Freename Domains 

freename domains

Are you curious about the utility of Freename domains? Web3 domains are not only a wonderful investment opportunity, but they have numerous other applications too. Moreover, Freename is also running a lucrative offer you won’t like to miss. So, what are we talking about? Let’s find out.

But before that:

What is Freename?

Freename provides Web3 domains. Web3 domains refer to domain names linked to the Web3 ecosystem. Unlike Web2, Web3 is a decentralized ecosystem that aims to remove centralized technologies that have full control over the internet, like Google, GoDaddy, and more.

How do web3 domains differ from web2 domains? Web2 domains are governed by one centralized body – ICANN, i.e., the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers. Web3 domains, on the other hand, are next-generation domain names built on blockchain technology. Web3 domains are governed by a decentralized authority. They currently operate on decentralized blockchain technologies like Binance, Aurora, Polygon, and Cronos. However, more blockchain technologies like Ethereum, Near, Solana, and others will be added soon.

Moreover, a Freename domain doesn’t include a monthly or yearly renewal fee. It includes a one-time fee and is free to use forever after that.

Uses of Freename Domains

Not too convinced yet as to why you should use Freename domains? The use of Freename domains goes far beyond the use of general TLDs. Here are some of its utilities:

Web3 browser extension

You can buy a domain name with a one-time fee on existing TLDs owned by others like .metaverse, .usa, or .india. You can also acquire and build your own community and mint your own TLD with prices starting at $79. As the TLD owner, you earn 50% of revenues from domain names bought in your TLD. Freename has recently launched the Web3 browser extension that enables users to add it to the browser of their choice.

Currently, the Web3 browser extension is available for Chrome, Firefox, and Brave. Users can add it to their preferred browser and navigate the web through it.

After adding the extension, it will be shown in the browser toolbar. Best of all, anyone who downloads the extension to see one TLD can now see all domain names and TLDs minted on the Freename platform.

Web3 Mail

Web3 email is another utility for using Freename domains. Freename has partnered with Ethermail to provide Web3 mail services for free.

Ethermail is a wallet-to-wallet communication tool that lets users send emails from one domain to another, linked to their respective blockchain wallets. This further ensures the anonymity and safety of the message.

Thus, the Web3 email utility features protection from phishing attacks, spam, and other privacy concerns. All the Ethermail features, like syncing with popular email apps, an autopilot contact list, and a campaign builder, also tag along.

Web3 Website Builder

Using Freename domains will also provide users with direct access to the Web3 website builder. Freename has partnered with EDA, Eternal Digital Assets, to help you build a Web3 website within minutes.

If you already have a Freename Web3 domain, getting started with your new website is simple. You can even customize your website design with an EDA website builder. Thereafter, link your domain to it, host it on a decentralized web server, and it’s ready to launch on any web3-compatible browser of your choice like Brave, Opera, etc.

Web3 Video Conferencing

Freename domain users can also take advantage of Web3 video conferencing services. Freename has partnered with Huddle, a decentralized peer-to-peer video conferencing platform.

You can simply sign in using a crypto wallet like Metamask, Phantom, Okxwallet, Walletconnect, Kelpr, etc., on Huddle if you have a Freename domain. This utility is useful for businesses in facilitating seamless communication and collaboration with team members.

Web3 Whois

Users can use Web 3 WHOIS to get the latest information on Freename domains. You can type in a specific wallet address and/or type in any domain name to know if it’s available. It helps you explore Freename, Unstoppable, and the Ethereum Name Service (ENS) for popular TLDs. It also provides suggested TLDs and suggested domain + TLDs.

Freename crypto payments

Freename now allows you to send crypto payments via Freename domains through its browser extension. To get started, you only need to download the Freename extension. Next, connect your crypto wallet, select the network, select the currency, and enter the web3 domain of the receiver.

The Freename browser extension will automatically detect the wallet connected with the web3 domain, ask for confirmation, and voila! The payment will be sent.

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.

Keep in mind that it must be a non-custodial wallet. You own the private keys to the wallet (in order to approve transactions via a signature).

Are the Domains Associated with ICANN?

ICANN does not manage freename.io domains. Freename.io believes their TLDs/domains must allow customers to operate independently. Freename.io 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.

Can i Transfer Domains?

Yes. The domain is stored in your cryptocurrency wallet and can be transferred by you after you have minted it. Access your portfolio, select the TLD or Domain you wish to transfer and type the recipient’s address. Afterwards, you must paste the OTP code you received by mail to confirm the transaction. Keep in mind that currently, it is not possible to import the domain that has been transferred, but it will be possible soon!

Yes. Domains are transferable ONLY after a TLD/domain has been minted and stored in a user’s wallet.

To transfer the TLD (or domain), the user must:

  • Access their wallet
  • Select the item they want to transfer
  • Enter the recipient’s address.
  • Confirm the transaction by pasting the OTP received by email

In the future, Freename.io will support importing domains that have been transferred.

What about Trademarks?

Registering a trademark on your Freename Web3 TLD will allow you to protect your web3 TLD and your logo worldwide juridically.

From the moment you deposit a trademark request, your web3 TLD will be protected worldwide for 6 months awaiting for the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IGE.ch) to confirm and register the availability of your TLD.****

A trademark is any symbol, phrase, or word that allows customers to identify a company’s goods or services. Freename is a web3 domain/TLD provider that also provides trademark registration.

A user must reach out to the trademark department to register a trademark. To get your trademark filed for review at the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property, a user must provide the following:

  1. Complete a Know your customer (KYC)
  2. A list of TLDs they wish to trademark
  3. Proof of payment

Once these conditions are met, it takes one week for the trademark to be reviewed and logo/TLDs to be provided with six months of worldwide protection.

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 Freename.io 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
  • Select the TLD (or domain)
  • 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 Freename.io data onto the public ledger of a blockchain and into a user’s wallet. Giving the user full ownership over the domain.

Minting on Freename.io is as simple as the following steps:

  1. Go to the Freename.io website
  2. Enter the TLD/domain you want to buy in the search bar
  3. Add the TLD/domain to your cart
  4. Go to checkout
  5. Create a Freename.io account
  6. Purchase the TLD/domain with cryptocurrency or a credit card
  7. Go to “portfolio and incomes.”
  8. Click on mint TLD/domain

What is a Domain?

A domain name is a string of letters and/or numbers that points to the IP address of the corresponding website. Generally, it is easier to remember a name than a long string of numbers.

A domain name is an address that people type into a browser bar to find a website. It consists of a Top-Level Domain (TLD), everything that comes after the dot, and the Second-Level Domain (SLD), everything that comes before the dot.

For example, “Freename.io” is the domain name, “Freename” is the SLD and “io” is the TLD.

Which Chains are Supported?

Freename has a multi-chain approach. You can choose on which Blockchain to mint your Web3 Domains and TLDs ranging Among Polygon, Cronos, and Binance.

A user can mint a Freename.io domain/TLD on the following blockchains:

  • Polygon
  • Cronos
  • Binance

Freename plans to expand its multi-chain approach by adding blockchains upon which domains can be minted.

Are there Renewal Fees?

No! Once you’ve bought a Freename Domain or TLD, it’s yours forever, no renewal fees ever!

No. There are no renewal fees on Freename.io. Once a user has paid a one-time payment for a domain/TLD, they own it. Forever.

This is the significant advantage of Web 3 domain/TLD over traditional alternatives.
