Nxt Hyperboria DNS solution
« on: August 19, 2014, 12:35:04 pm »

I have been waiting for the Alias transfer release to go live so I can officially announce this..

I have created a p2p DNS solution for the Hyperboria network to use Nxt aliases as the domain->IP resolution.  Its pretty basic, but it works really well.  Up until now Hyperboria has not had any decentralized DNS solution.

The code is here: https://github.com/slothbag/NxtHypeDns

At the moment I am using DNSMASQ with a "server" line redirecting any .hype lookups to the program above.  The program will receive the dns query and call the Nxt API on port 7876 to lookup the name (including a namespace prefix of 4973), if it finds it, it will return the hyperboria compatible ipv6 address.

1 minute domain name registrations for 0.03 cents.. cant get much better than that :)

Looking for some crypto media outlets to write this up.. "Worlds biggest decentralized network Hyperboria adopts Nxt for DNS resolution" :)

Great project, I will def try it out.
Not too familiar with hyperboria yet but it looks very interesting and combining it with Nxt seems a great fit.

I just updated the Meshwiki to include Nxt.

Thanks!

Nxt
Nxt is a peer-to-peer crypto-currency 2.0. Is has the ability to store aliases with arbitrary data and this has been leveraged to store domain name/alias to ip address mappings. In conjunction with a DNS bridge like NxtHypeDns it is possible to use the Nxt system and its aliases to resolve domain names into Hyperboria compatible ipv6 address right now. In fact there are already a dozen of the most popular hyperboria destinations registered within Nxt. Once these domains are transfered to their rightful owners (for free) then the address resolution can be trusted as long as they own their private keys.

This system is up and running right now, name registration costs 1 Nxt (0.03 cents) and takes about 1 minute to confirm.

Benefits over Namecoin is Nxt is a Proof-of-stake system, so no wasteful mining is involved. In fact the Nxt client can run on minimal hardware such as the Raspberry Pi.

There are now about 40 Hyperboria domain aliases registered in Nxt. Most of them still by me but functional none the less.

I'm also offering a 1000NXT reward to anyone on the list who is the first to get their site working and takes ownership of the alias. No takers yet.

slothbag, that's awesome! I don't suppose you'd be willing to post step-by-step instructions on setting up a nxt hyperboria node here?

I don't think I need to do a step by step to install NRS here..

CJDNS has pretty good install instructions over here: https://github.com/cjdelisle/cjdns

Once you have both NRS and CJDNS running then you can follow the instructions here: https://github.com/slothbag/NxtHypeDns to get the DNS portion working.

So basically its Browser->DNS(query)->DNSMASQ->(.hype)->NxtHypeDNS->(alias)->NRS.

Please note this process is not for everyday users.. CJDNS alone requires some understanding of networking fundamentals, to set up NxtHypeDns you should have a pretty good understanding of networks, routing, TCP & DNS.

I'm the "network admin" for my house, so I maintain this system for all users on the network.. I don't expect anyone else to be able to maintain it if something goes wrong.

If there is a particular part your stuck on, just ask.

Thanks, slothbag. I'm afraid that I am indeed a computer user with very average technical skills. I do have a tech savvy friend, however, who could help me set this up. I love the idea of what you are doing, though!

Nice one kseistrup! Unfortunately I did say it was only for those sites on the list. Sorry

Doesn't matter. The rest of us will also have to install now > curious. But can't see it, unless...  ;D
