Handshake Domain Names
Handshake Blockchain is a decentralized domain naming protocol and alternative root zone with DNS, secured by Proof of Work. Top Level Domains (TLDs) are won in auctions and registered on blockchain using HNS coins. There is the ICANN root zone including .com, .net, .org, and then the Handshake decentralized root zone with .anytime and .webaddress for example, among 7 million other top level domains, yes 7 million top level domains are already on the Handshake blockchain, compared to ICANN’s 1,500 TLDs in the ICANN root zone. Handshake TLDs can be in Latin script or any language script from simplified Chinese to Greek etc. Emojis and symbols can also be used as TLDs in the browser address bar.
- Handshake Blockchain also decentralizes certificate authority (via DANE)
- Native to the blockchain, Handshake TLDs are seizure and censorship resistant, unlike domain names under ICANN
- Opera’s New Crypto Browser now supports Handshake TLDs, Beacon Browser was designed to resolve Handshake DNS and domains.
- End users can already register Handshake domains at mainstream registrars such as Namecheap, Encirca, Porkbun and 101 Domain

Fundamentals of Brandable Domains
A brand name — and by extension brandable domains — should be short. Typically, brand domains should be no more than ten characters long (ideally), but of course there are exceptions to this rule. Some companies names are so long that they become known only by their initials, leaving consumers to sometimes struggle to guess what the initials even stand for. Try to keep it short and sweet. Brandable domains should also be pronounceable, easy to spell, a cinch to remember and be available on the right domain extension.
What’s in a name, for brands it’s their goodwill. Where some succeed in the marketplace, others may fall by the wayside. How much of success can be attributed to the selection of the right brand names (and brandable domain names), as opposed to market timing and forces, the product, leadership and marketing can be debated. But no one argues that a brandable name is intrinsically important – in conjunction with other essential business fundamentals – to conquer any market. The Bisbrand brandable domain marketplace has many domains for sale in a variety of industries to choose from. But first a bit more about what makes a great brand name for businesses and startups.
The Domain Extension
Dotcom is king, and that is a blessing and a curse for marketers. Available, unregistered names are increasingly hard to find on the .com top level in any brandable domain market or domain aftermarket, which puts dotcom names at a premium. This unavailability of brandable names on dotcom has led marketers to also look at dot-io, and dot-co, then there is also the dot-net, dot-info and dot-org extensions. Not to mention the recent launch of the new gtld extensions, which give marketers literally hundreds of domain extensions to choose from. Everything from dotcom to dot-xyz and every extension in between. However, no one can argue by sheer numbers of registrations, and prices commanded on the after market, that dotcom is the undisputed leader in domain extensions with most every major brands’ website ending in dotcom. The BisBrand brandable domain marketplace focuses on and contains domains for sale mostly with the dotcom extension.
In essence, a brandable domain name should be short, positive, convey your market and also be memorable (one of the main reasons, brands tend to be in the short side when it comes to character count).
