NOTO is a B2B service that offers a unified resolution service for Web3 domains. It based on:

  • A blockchain crawler maintaining an always up-to-date map of Web3 domains across all blockchains
  • A patent-pending scoring mechanism that provides guidance in handling collisions and managing abuse signals related to Web3 domains
  • A reliable distribution mechanism that provides access to detailed information about Web3 domains via API or through DNS zone files

NOTO can be an extremely useful tool for:

  • Developers and companies that want to resolve web3 domains from any provider/blockchain in their applications from multiple providers.
  • Providers of DNS resolution service that want to enable their users to resolve Web3 domains easily through the same DNS servers they already use for Web2 domains
  • Researchers and Academics that study the development of Web3 and need comprehensive access to quality data for their research.
  • IP and Legal professionals that want to monitor activity on Web3 domains and get signals about potentially abusive use of Web3 domains.

You can integrate NOTO in your project in 2 different ways:

  • Use the NOTO API. Use our simple REST API to perform searches on specific domain names and get full details on them.
  • Use the NOTO DNS. NOTO allows you to export the data about the Web3 domains in the database in the format of a zonefile. This can then be easily imported into your existing DNS resolver to offer easy and fast Web3 resolution service to your users.

NOTO is currently in private beta. We welcome expressions of interest from Network Operators, VPN and DNS providers and application developers as well as Researchers and Academics interested in getting full access to the NOTO backend and API.

We are also making a set of DNS resolvers publicly available to allow interested third parties to test the DNS resolution option offered by NOTO. More details on this are available in the documentation portal.

Noto is a new technology that enables users, companies, institutions and communities to support and resolve all web2 and Web3 Domains with an unique integration, allowing and automatically resolving a common issue in Web3 Domains: the naming collision.
You can use Noto directly in your browser or device, or use the APIs directly in your APP.

With the NOTO platform you can create your own web3 resolution project enabling you to set up your own API keys to resolve Web3 Domains and handle collisions with your own preferences.
The Noto Platform will also enable you to customize the behavior of your DNS and will allow you to retrieve analytics data about all the Web3 Domain landscape.


You can integrate Noto in your project in 2 different ways:

  • Use the NOTO APIs: to resolve Web3 Domains easily. Create your own project from the Noto Platform and start handling them directly.
  • Use the NOTO DNS: configure and install the DNS in your router device to start resolve and support Web3 Domains in all your devices.

Noto offers versatile implementation options, including integration at the API, DNS, or blockchain level. This flexibility ensures compatibility with various standards and infrastructures.

As a blockchain-level Oracle, Noto allows users to resolve Web3 Domains directly on the blockchain. This integration adds an extra layer of security and decentralization to the domain resolution process.

Noto positions itself as an Infrastructure-as-a-Service technology for B2B companies, providing them with the means to offer and use a Web3 internet connection. This approach enhances Web3 technology integration into business operations.

Web3 Domains  FAQ

Web3 Domains are a new type of domain name that exists on blockchain technology. Unlike traditional domain names managed by centralized organizations like ICANN, Web3 Domains are decentralized. This means they are registered on a blockchain, which offers several unique benefits. Firstly, once you purchase a Web3 domain, it’s yours perpetually without the need for annual renewals. Secondly, these domains can act as both a website address and a cryptocurrency wallet address, simplifying transactions. They are resistant to censorship and can be integrated with decentralized applications (dApps), making them a key component in the emerging Web3 space, which emphasizes a decentralized internet.

Considering that Web3 Domains are not organized and coordinated by a central entity like ICANN, it means that they may differ in standard of technology used, features but most importantly they can have naming collision, enabling different owners of a web3 domain to collide between each other in deciding which one has the right to be resolved.

Web3 Domains are registered on blockchain networks. Once registered, they are associated with a public wallet address rather than being managed by traditional DNS servers. This integration with blockchain technology allows for direct peer-to-peer interactions, decentralized hosting, and can facilitate crypto transactions.

Benefits include enhanced security against domain hijacking, censorship resistance, simplified cryptocurrency transactions (using the domain as a wallet address), and complete control over the domain without reliance on a central authority.

Yes and no. They can be used for hosting websites, but they require specific browsers or extensions to resolve, as they are not part of the traditional DNS. However, they are more commonly used for simplifying crypto transactions.

Collision Management  FAQ

A domain name collision occurs when an attempt to resolve a name used in a private network, like a company’s internal server, conflicts with a newly registered domain in the public DNS. This can happen when private network names overlap with new top-level domains (TLDs).

Collisions typically occur when a private network uses a domain name in its internal DNS that later becomes a publicly registered TLD. For example, if a private network uses “.home” internally, and “.home” is later introduced as a public TLD, conflicts arise.

Our algorithm handles Web3 domain name collisions automatically, ensuring a smooth browsing and resolution experience.

To prevent collisions, avoid using unofficial TLDs for internal naming. Following best practices for DNS naming conventions, such as using registered domain names or reserved TLDs (like .local), is advisable.

Multi-Chain Resolution  FAQ

Multichain resolution refers to the process of enabling seamless interaction and transaction execution across multiple blockchain networks. It allows for the transfer of information, assets, or value between different blockchains.

It typically involves interoperability protocols or bridge services that can understand and translate information between different blockchain protocols. This may include smart contracts designed to operate across multiple chains or third-party services that facilitate cross-chain interactions.

The main benefits include increased interoperability between different blockchain networks, broader access to diverse ecosystems and services, enhanced flexibility in choosing platforms based on specific needs, and potential improvements in scalability and efficiency.

Cross-chain transactions involve the exchange of assets or data between different blockchains. They are facilitated through interoperability protocols, blockchain bridges, or specific types of decentralized applications that can interact with multiple chains.

Legal considerations include compliance with the regulations governing each blockchain involved, as well as broader issues related to cross-border transactions, data privacy, and asset transfer laws.


DNS stands for Domain Name System. It is an essential component of the internet, functioning like a phonebook for the internet. The DNS translates domain names that are easy for humans to remember, like www.example.com, into the numerical IP addresses needed for locating and identifying computer services and devices with the underlying network protocols. When you type a website address in your browser, the DNS servers take that domain name and translate it to its corresponding IP address so your browser can load the website.

This system is crucial for the smooth functioning of the internet, allowing users to access websites using familiar domain names rather than complex numerical IP addresses.

To browse the Web3 Domain you need to download the Noto DNS installer.
Choose the device and follow the instructions.
The installer will configure your device to connect to the Noto DNS allowing native resolution of all Web3 Domains.
To browse a Web3 Domain you just need to write it with http://yourweb3domain.web3 or adding a “/” at the end of the domain name: yourweb3domain.web3/.
In case you don’t want to use the installer you can follow the manual configuration instructions.
