When you create an account with Nested you are allocated your own unique Nested ID known as a Nested address. This is a private webspace that you can use for your personal endeavors, such as a project planning, photostoring and file-managing. Within this Place, you can also create separate Places and sub-Places; regardless of their content, these Places will remain private and exclusive to you, and will not be accessible to others. Since they will have their distinct web addresses (for example, if one of your Places is named as ‘Alice’s Online Diary’, the Nested address for that could be firstname.lastname@example.org), people can send you messages to this address, but they will not be able to view its contents.
You can also link your Nested accounts to essential digital services such as verification methods for Facebook, AirBnB, booking.com, etc.
Aside your personal Place, there are the Places that you create. When creating a Place — independent of the Place’s size and settings— each Place is assigned a Nested address. If the Receiving option under Place Settings is turned on, Members in Nested can send messages to the selected Place.* If the Email option under Place Settings is turned on, the Nested address of the selected place will function like an email address; anyone, even those outside of Nested, can send this Place messages.
*This is dependent on whom you allow to send messages to your Place. For example, if your Place has been created within a Grand Place, you can allow all the Members of the Grand Place to have the capacity to post messages on your Place, but you can also alternate this option to only selected Members.
