Web3 refers to the next generation of the internet, where the focus is on decentralized technologies and systems, such as blockchain and peer-to-peer networks.
In the traditional web (Web1.0), users primarily consume content and interact with websites through their web browsers. In the Web2.0 era, users became more involved in creating and sharing content, with the rise of social media platforms and cloud computing.
Web3, on the other hand, aims to enable a decentralized internet, where data and assets are owned and controlled by the users, without intermediaries. The use of blockchain technology in Web3 allows for secure and transparent transactions, as well as the creation of decentralized applications (dApps) that are not controlled by any central authority.
Some of the key concepts of Web3 include:
Decentralization: The absence of intermediaries, enabling peer-to-peer transactions and interactions.
Tokenization: The conversion of assets into digital tokens that can be easily transferred and traded.
Interoperability: The ability of different blockchain systems to communicate and exchange data and assets.
Privacy: The protection of user data and assets, through the use of encryption and other privacy-enhancing technologies.
Overall, Web3 aims to create a more open, transparent, and equitable internet, where users have greater control over their data and assets.

We often get asked this question a lot as in many cases. With the information in this article, we will outline how to map a domain name to the local hosts file, thus overriding temporarily the DNS record for a domain.
If you ever set up a new domain hosting or migrate a domain to a new server, you will want to check to make sure that the changes are good before changing the DNS to the new server.
We often get asked this question a lot as in many cases, clients change the DNS before checking to see if there site actually works. This can lead to frustration, downtime and lost revenue and customers.
