Unstoppable Domains, an Ethereum-based project that allows users to create “.crypto” website URLs, has been integrated with Cloudflare’s Distributed Web Resolver. After the integration Users can access blockchain addresses of unstoppable domains from any browser.
Previously, websites created with the .crypto Unstoppable Domains extension were only accessible via browsers that had already selected access to them. By using Cloudflare’s DNS over HTTPS, all web browsers connected to the internet can now access .crypto sites.
While traditional domain name providers impose annual renewal fees on users and control large numbers of websites through centralized data centers, blockchain-based domains remain completely under user control. The most common threats that come with running a traditional website, such as data breaches, arbitrary censorship, and phishing attempts, are irrelevant in a blockchain-based domain service.
Matthew Gould, CEO of Unstoppable Domains, cited the now frequent occurrence of Internet data breaches and the invasive invasions of the Internet monopoly of Big Tech as the rationale for the project. Gould said:
“At a time when data breaches are rampant and where privacy and ownership of an individual’s own digital assets are paramount, many forward-thinking individuals and companies have challenged centralized control. This new system is different. It gives the user back control of where it should be. “
With the support of the venture capitalist Tim Draper, Unstoppable Domains started in 2018 and has so far secured financing in the millions.. So far, it has been reported that nearly half a million domain names have been created across unstoppable domains.
