How to Send an ENS name

Transfer an ENS name with "Send" button

Updated over a week ago

The "Send" button is a gifting flow for name owners to send an ENS name.

The send flow will update the ETH record, transfer the Manager (for unwrapped names) and transfer the Owner to a wallet address, thereby making that the new name owner.

To individually assign ETH address, Manager & Owner roles, to one, or different, wallet addresses, use the "Edit Roles" button also located in the Ownership-tab.


What are Owner, Manager and ETH Address?

Owner: ​The owner of the ENS name - the wallet that hold the ENS name NFT.
​Manager: ​The manager of records - the wallet allowed to make changes to its records (but not transfer the name)
​ETH Address:The wallet address the ENS name points to - where funds sent to a name are received.


Why don't I have a manager?

Names wrapped in the name wrapper do not have manager. Names registered via app.ens.domains are automatically wrapped. More information here.
