Registering your ENS name

Registering an ENS name is a three step process

  1. Request to Register
    A 0ETH commit transaction to prevent front-running

  2. Wait 60 Seconds
    A 60 second waiting time

  3. Register
    The actual Registration transaction

Step 1: Request to register

While this transaction does not have a transaction value, it still incurs a gas fee.

Click Request to Register to start Step 1 of the registration process. A 0 ETH transaction is performed where your name is hashed with a secret key so that no one else can view the name you're trying to register.

Keep in mind

  • This step stores a secret key in your browser's local storage. To avoid having to repeat this step, make sure to not clear your cache or switch browsers.

  • You have 1 day to complete Step 3 before the Request to Register transaction expires. However, the ENS name is not reserved for you during this time.

Double-check that the registration length and fees are satisfactory, then press Begin to start the registration process.

Click Open wallet and approve the transaction in your wallet.

Wait while the transaction is processed by the Ethereum blockchain.

Step 2: Wait 60 seconds

After the Step 1 transaction completes there's a 60-second waiting period to prevent front running.

Step 3: Register

Now it's time to Register your ENS name. Click the register button and confirm the transaction in your wallet.

Congratulations! If all transactions went through successfully you should now be the proud owner of your very own ENS name!
