Hosting on a .crypto domain

Will it ever be possible to host a Mastodon server on a .crypto domain? I contacted a company that hosts Mastodon servers. The owner said it wouldn’t work now and suggested I approach Mastodon developers about it. Thanks.

It’s completely possible to host mastodon on a .crypto domain, the problem is that other servers won’t have a way to communicate with it unless they also support .crypto domains. We have no interest in adding support for proprietary, non-standard DNS protocols, but you’re welcome to do so in a fork, if you wish. If ICANN adds support for the protocol, or it becomes a web standard (integrated by default into major browsers) some other way, then we would consider adding it.
