Decentralized DNS is fantastic for botnets that use Domain Name Generation (DGA). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_generation_algorithm

You can easily control the domains, schedule their use, and not worry about takedowns.

But are handshake domains free? Who pays the ETH blockchain fees?

Handshake is not Eth based it runs on its own blockchain. There are still fees but they are quite small. Less than a penny per update currently.
