Why Base Is the Most Effective Solution for Minting Web3 Domains

Many beginner and professional developers prefer minting Web3 domains on Base for user-friendliness. However, there is more to this platform. 

Here are three reasons that make Base the most effective solution for Web3 minting: 

Security and Reliability

As a blockchain platform, Base is decentralized and distributed in nature, which strengthens it against security attacks. The platform keeps your domain data distributed across the network while eliminating single points of failure. This makes data tampering almost impossible for hackers.

Base boasts many robust security features that protect your sensitive data from potential and recurring hacks. One example is the private key authentication system. It ensures only the sole owner accesses their data while blocking all unauthorized users. 

Currently, 7 million developers trust Base for minting Web3 domains and blockchain apps. This shows the trustworthiness and credibility of this platform.

Cost Efficiency

Another benefit of using Base for Web3 domain minting is the cost efficiency. Compared to other blockchain networks, you will find Base’s transaction fees and the overall cost for minting relatively lower. 

This makes Base an excellent platform for individual developers or small businesses trying Web3 domain minting for the first time. In fact, larger companies can also save significant money with it in the long run. 

Base is also super scalable, meaning it can handle a large number of domain transactions at a time without compromising its performance. So, even if your network grows, your total cost of minting will remain low.

Developer-Friendly Environment

Whether a beginner or a seasoned developer, Base provides a friendly platform for everyone, regardless of their tech capabilities. You can find many helpful tools and resources on the platform to efficiently guide you on minting Web3 domains.

Base also integrates into popular development frameworks like Node and React, allowing you to build and deploy Web3 domains and apps quickly. This way, you don’t have to switch from platform to platform just to create one domain.

On Base, you can connect with like-minded individuals and experts through the online community on Reddit. You can ask your questions there, get their answers within a few minutes, and even find helpful documentation. 

Freename’s Integration with Base

The Base Chain is a relatively new addition to Freename’s integration list. With this upgrade, you can now use this cost-effective platform to have more control over your digital identity and Web3 domain minting.

Examples of How Web3 Domains on Base Are Used

You can use your freshly-minted Web3 domain on Base for various purposes, including building your personal branding. A few examples of the use cases include:

Decentralized Websites 

The most apparent use of Web3 domains is for hosting decentralized websites (dWebs). These are typically built on decentralized infrastructure like InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), independent of centralized web hosting providers. 

dWebs’ data is spread across a peer-to-peer network, strengthening its resiliency against potential attacks. Web3 domains will give your website an easily-readable name.

Decentralized Identity and Authentication

Like dWebs, decentralized identities built on Web3 domains aren’t dependent on centralized identity providers. With this identity, you will have a unique online representation that you can use to authenticate yourself across dApps and services.

Your Web3 domain will actually be your unique identity. This means you don’t have to remember your usernames and passwords to access different apps and services. Only your Web3 domain will do all the work! This gives you complete ownership and control of your data and digital identity. 

dApps and Smart Contracts Integration 

You can also use your Web3 domains to interact with the decentralized systems through dApps integration. For instance, you can make transactions, avail of services, and manage your assets from a dApp powered by Base.  

Your Web3 domain can also integrate with smart contracts to access escrow services in decentralized marketplaces. Sellers and buyers can verify each other’s identities by linking a specific transaction to the designated Web3 domain. This builds trust in digital transactions and prevents fraud.

If you want to be at the forefront of the Web3 revolution and try Base Chain integrated with Freename, just grab a Web3 domain and start your journey!

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.

  1. Connect your cryptocurrency wallet to Freename.io
  2. Request a withdrawal
  3. Receive request confirmation

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.
