What is a Web3 Website?

Web3 website

Web3 technologies are ushering in an era in which the internet is more distributed and community-driven than ever before. Web3 websites are one of the most intriguing innovations of the Web3 era. A Web3 website is similar to a decentralized one in that it is not associated with a single domain name but may be accessed via a user- or community-owned alias. Blockchain technology ensures the integrity of these identifiers, making them unchangeable and censorship-proof. This article will define Web3 websites, explain how they function, and discuss the ways in which they may improve Web3 ecology.

What Is a Web3 Website?

Web3 is a revolutionary development because it blends the independence of Web 1.0 with the interactivity of Web 2.0. In an ideal world, it could provide individuals with greater agency over their digital lives while also enhancing their security through blockchain technology. Key components such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language programming enable the emulation of human pattern recognition and language processing in written form, making Web3 an incredibly powerful tool for the future.

To fully understand the differences between Web 3.0 and Web 2.0, it’s important to compare the two. In Web 2.0, internet advertising has evolved to target users based on the content of the pages they visit. However, this is largely due to major tech firms (like Meta, Google, etc.) tracking users’ internet movements and storing the data. These businesses then make money by selling users’ personal information to advertisers that provide goods and services they have expressed an interest.

In contrast, blockchain technology is at the heart of Web3, serving as the decentralized transaction ledger that stores data in blocks of access to all users. With Web3, users are empowered to take charge of their own online experience. This starkly contrasts to Web 2.0, where users must trust the technology and safety measures of large IT businesses to access online services. With Web3, tokens can be awarded to users who contribute to building the platform, creating a more inclusive and democratic online ecosystem. Find out more about how to build a Web3 website here.

Web3 represents a paradigm shift in how we think about the internet, offering users greater control, security, and transparency than ever before. By merging the best aspects of Web 1.0 and Web 2.0, Web3 can reshape the internet as we know it, creating a more open and decentralized online environment for all.

Freename Introduces Its Web3 Browser Extension

Freename has recently announced the launch of its Web3 Browser Extension, which is now available on Google Chrome, Mozilla, and Brave. With this new extension, users can explore the internet using Web3 domains. This extension is incredibly easy to install, requiring only one click. Once installed, it provides a range of features allowing users to access and utilize Web3 domains easily.

One of the most significant advantages of this extension is that it enables users to surf the internet using Freename domains. Essentially, the plugin allows redirecting Web3 domains to traditional websites, including personal branding pages, company websites, and social media profiles. This is a significant step in the Web3 world, as it broadens the range of applications for blockchain-based domains and directly connects them to the traditional Internet world.

To use the Web3 Browser Extension, users simply need to install the extension and access the management panel of their Freename domain. From there, they can indicate the page URL to which they want to redirect the domain, making it easy to browse the domain. Users can browse the domain by using the “browse” button within the extension or by typing the domain in the navigation bar of the browser with “http://” as a prefix.

The Web3 Browser Extension from Freename is a game-changer in the world of Web3 domains. It makes it easy for users to connect with traditional websites using blockchain-based domains, which opens up a world of new possibilities. Whether you’re a personal brand, a company, or a social media influencer, this extension allows you to expand your reach and connect with users in new and exciting ways.

Freename’s Role as a Connector Between Web2 and Web3

Freename’s ecosystem acts as a vital link between the Web3 and Web2 worlds, offering a range of additional functions to users of Web3 domains. The recently launched Web3 Browser extension provides an array of features that allow users to purchase and search for domains and TLDs directly on the Freename site using the “Browser” button. Additionally, the “Web3 WHOIS” button offers access to the market’s first and only Web3 WHOIS, which provides users with access to the domains behind any wallet’s address and the wallet addresses behind any minted domains. This essential tool allows users to gain more transparency in the Web3 world, making it easier to find and access the information they need.

Currently, the Web3 WHOIS queries wallets, domains, and TLDs from Freename, Unstoppable Domains, and the ENS registry. In the near future, Freename will introduce two major features that can be seen in the extension’s screenshot. The first is “Send tokens,” allowing users to send and receive tokens to specific wallet addresses using Web3 domains. The second feature is “Send Web3 emails,” enabling users to send blockchain-based emails and messages through Freename domains. The company has promised to make further announcements about the official release of these features soon.

Freename’s Web3 ecosystem is increasingly integrated into the Web2 world, making it easier for users to utilize blockchain-based domains in their everyday activities. At the same time, the platform offers vertical functionalities that cater to the specific needs of users in the Web3 world, such as sending emails and surfing websites. This makes Freename a unique and valuable tool for anyone looking to expand their presence in the Web3 world or simply gain more transparency and control over their online activities.

Conclusion

The Web3 environment that Freename has created is a significant step toward fully achieving Web3’s promise. Freename is contributing to making Web3 more accessible and user-friendly than ever before by providing users with a wide variety of powerful tools and functionalities, such as the ability to search for and buy domains and TLDs directly on the Freename site.

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

Which domains are Protected?

Protected domains and TLDs are domains and TLDs that we’ve detected are associated with a brand, organization, or notable person. We believe it is important to increase adoption for the next generation of the internet by helping to onboard brands into the Web3 era. If you are interested in applying for a Protected domain, please contact us.

TLDs/Domains associated with a notable person, brand or organization are considered Protected Domains. Protected domains help onboard brands in Web 3 increasing adoption. Protected domains also protect users from others impersonating/stealing their domains.

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.
