Our philosohpy

“At Pencil, we need to break away from all possible centralized systems; this is why we developed an extraordinary infrastructure to stop censorship and allow freedom of communication.”

What is the use of a custom domain?

It is a naming protocol compatible with the existing DNS. It does not replace the DNS protocol but replaces the root zone file (where TLD ownership is stored) and root servers with a distributed, decentralized system that anyone can use. This situation allows the root zone to be uncensorable, permissionless, and free from gatekeepers such as ICANN, which currently manages the root zone. On Handshake, users can register any name they can think of as a TLD and own them, unlike rented domains in the ICANN system.

All users on the network cryptographically validate and manage the root zone, eliminating the need for the Certificate Authority (CA) system (learn more). The Handshake blockchain registers names, i.e., a large distributed zone file where anyone has the right to add an entry.

Existing TLDs like .com, .net, .org (and Alexa’s top 100k names) are delisted from being registered on the network, and Handshake resolvers use traditional TLDs as a source of truth when visiting a traditional domain like Namebase.io. Of course, Handshake resolvers like NextDNS.io use the Handshake blockchain as a source of truth when you visit a Handshake domain (learn how to use NextDNS).

Get your domain name here, quickly and efficiently out of ICANN’s range.
