Like Bitcoin, Namecoin is a peer-to-peer system, which, assuming an honest majority of participants can not be controlled by a single state or a company. Changes to the namespace of the rightful owner of a domain with a public key signature method and distributed to all peer-to-peer users. The inclusion in the block chain , as the eternal logfile is used, the transactions are authentic. The block chain grows whenever new transactions, if any of the participants through a fairly intense proof-of-work process, a matching result of a cryptographic hash function has found what may be verified by all other participants. The falsification of a longer chain block is, due to the computational effort, impractical.
Currently, the top-level domain .bit used in the official domain name system is not awarded. To resolve domain name you need either the current block chain or use a public name server that participates in the Namecoin system. Namecoin uses a separate block of Bitcoin chain. The software is open source and is hosted on GitHub.
