The digital world is constantly evolving, and with the rise of Web3 and blockchain technology, there is an increasing need for innovative solutions that can bridge the gap between Web2 and Web3. In response to this, .ART, the leading domain extension for the creative community, has launched a groundbreaking innovation that creates matching ENS and DNS domains for the Web3 world.
What are ENS and DNS domains?
ENS (Ethereum Name Service) domains are secure domain names for the decentralized world, providing a way for users to map human-readable names to wallet addresses, smart contracts, NFTs, IPFS content or any other asset on the Ethereum and dozens of other networks.
DNS (Domain Name System) domains are the traditional domain names that power the internet, enabling users to access websites and send emails using familiar names like example.art.
The Best of Both Worlds
With .ART’s matching ENS and DNS domains, users can enjoy the best of both worlds: a single name that works across both Web2 and Web3 platforms. This means that if you own yourname.art as a DNS domain, you can also register yourname.art as an ENS domain pointing to any digital asset on the Ethereum blockchain, just like a .ETH domain. The same name can also be used as a web address in any web browser pointing to a website and also as an email address, something a .ETH domain cannot do.
New Opportunities for Branding and Project Management
Furthermore, the integration of DNS and ENS opens up new opportunities for branding and project management in the web3 world. Creators and organizations can use their own custom .ART domains to represent their brand and projects, and use ENS to securely and easily manage these assets. This allows them to establish a strong and easily recognizable online presence and to interact with various decentralized applications and services seamlessly.
Additionally, .ART domains are collision-proof, meaning that only the owner of a DNS .ART domain can register the matching ENS .ART domain. Similarly, if an ENS .ART domain is registered for an available DNS .ART domain, only the person who owns the ENS .ART domain can use the DNS .ART domain. This ensures that there can be no confusion or conflict between different owners of similar names.
On the edge of innovation
.ART is the first domain registry to offer this innovative matching domain capability across both ENS and DNS, making .ART domains more powerful and useful than any other blockchain-capable domains. The new feature creates future-proof and collision-proof domains for the expanding digital ecosystem.
Ulvi Kasimov, Founder of .ART Domains, said, “We are thrilled to launch this new feature that connects Web2 and Web3 with our unique .ART extension. We believe that this will open up new possibilities for artists, collectors, curators, galleries, museums, and anyone who wants to express themselves creatively online or on Web3. Our vision is to make .ART domains not only a digital identity but also a digital asset that can be used in various ways on different platforms.”
