Namecoin / Dot-BIT

Shared publicly  - 
 
README :
Here is the first release of NMControl 0.4 !

Description :

nmcontrol is a python software that will provide services on top of namecoin like DNS, proxy, name (domain, alias, etc) registration and renewal.
It is composed of a daemon (nmcontrol) that communicates with namecoin and provide services, and a GUI (nmcontrol-gui) that manages the daemon.

It will allow you to :
- create domains, alias and auto renew them
- listen for dns requests
- listen for socks requests
- publish your services (in a namecoin record/namespace, services could announce themselves in the blockchain)
- etc

It is multi-threaded and designed with plugins, to enable each person to activate only what they need and what they want to share (for example, you will be able to share your DNS server with other people if you want).
Aim of this software is to allow people to easily build things/services on top of namecoin.

Current version supports :
- a flexible plugin system
- an rpc client/server to manage commands
- communication with namecoin

TODO :
- a GUI (to manage domains, alias, etc)
- make required modifications for it to work on windows and mac
- advanced services like DNS and proxies
- automatic configuration of the OS
- provide binaries and install software

Links :
- sources : https://github.com/khalahan/nmcontrol/
- README : https://github.com/khalahan/nmcontrol/blob/master/README.md
- INSTALL : https://github.com/khalahan/nmcontrol/blob/master/doc/INSTALL.md
- TODO : https://github.com/khalahan/nmcontrol/blob/master/doc/TODO.md

Now that the base structure is done, I can focus on advanced services :)

Hi, I wonder if you can help? I registered a .bit domain name yesterday 1st May 2013. After I paid my fee 0.1 BTC I received an email with a link to my hosting server account. However, this morning my email has disappeared (for whatever reason?), I've either accidentally deleted or lost it somehow? Anyway, I don't even have a note of my server address or the extremely long password I was given and I've no idea where to find my domain server? My domain name is:
fastcoin.bit and it doesn't seem to have propogated yet? Just wondered if you could help, thanks.

Namecoin-DNS-Server, a new dns software for namecoin, has been released : http://dot-bit.org/DNS_and_Proxy_softwares
Still following the "spec v1" (http://dot-bit.org/Namespace:Domain_names_v1.0), but will certainly evolve.

Namecoin Bundle : namecoin + proxy for firefox, IE & chrome
=> http://dot-bit.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=349

Aim of this bundle is to provide an all in one package that people can install to really use the decentralized part of the namecoin DNS system, instead on relying on external DNS or proxy servers. This is a first shot made with some existing tools, that only need you to be improved :p

Namecoin v3.50 : faster & better
A new version of namecoin is available !

Project : http://dot-bit.org/
Files : http://dot-bit.org/files/

Improved performances :
* New index for names, created at first startup
* Faster name_scan (3x)
* Faster name_list (11x !)

New rpc commands :
* sendtoname : sendtoname <namecoinname> <amount> [comment] [comment-to]
- allow you to send namecoin to last owner of a name

* name_show : name_show <name>
- show only one name (same as name_scan "xx" 1) or nothing of name is not found

[* name_filter : name_filter [regexp] [maxage=36000] [from=0] [nb=0] [stat]
- filter names with regular expressions, height of a name (to get only names from last X blocks), to count names, etc
Examples :
* list all unexpired names
namecoind name_filter

* list all names in the d/ namespace
namecoind name_filter "^d/" 0

* list names modified last 150 blocks
namecoind name_filter "^d/" 150

* count names modified last 150 blocks
namecoind name_filter "^d/" 150 0 0 stat

* list 20 names from number 100
namecoind name_filter "" 0 100 20

Other :
* name_scan now only returns the minimum of data (8MB instead of 16MB)
* if index of names (nameindexfull.dat) is deleted, it'll be recreated at startup.
* default rpc port updated to not conflict with bitcoin
* config file renamed to namecoin.conf (it's never too late...). Still works with original name. Same for pid file.


Some really useful changes !
NamecoinToBind (https://github.com/khalahan/NamecoinToBind) will be updated soon to benefit from this.

Check it out ! :P

NamecoinToBind v2.1.3 released : https://github.com/khalahan/NamecoinToBind.
Fixed a bug of duplicate domains in forwards and zones that prevented a bind restart.
