Ethereum based domain name system using smart contracts (BC-DNS)

One of the most critical resources that ensure the current working of the internet is the domain name system (DNS). It is a decentralized, hierarchical naming system that is responsible for translating the human-readable domain name to its associated IP address. The use of DNS thus eliminates the need for humans to remember the IP address of all their favorite websites (such as 172.217.6.68 an IPV4 address for google.com). Despite its widespread use, DNS is vulnerable to various security issues. This project focuses on replicating the basic functionality of the existing DNS on the blockchain and deploying it on a peer to peer network making it completely decentralized and, in the process, make it a bit more secure and reliable by addressing few of the security vulnerabilities of the existing system
