How to Register NFT Domain [Free Mint Guide]

What Is NFT Domain?

An NFT Domain is a domain that is decentralised and exists in the form of a smart contract that is listed in a public block chain.

NFT Domains often include new extensions for their domains, like .nft or .crypto and they are listed in block chains, like the Ethereum and Polygon ones.

The main way via which these domains are hosted is to be stored in a crypto wallet by their owner and once such a domain is registered, nobody else can take it as the owner of the wall and that is hosting the domain is the only master of it. The benefits are that the one who registers an NFT domain owns it for life, without monthly or annual paid fees. As a NFT Domain owner, this gives you the complete ownership of a domain and says it is decentralised, you can truly own it. Another benefit is that you get even more powers over traditional domains as you are the complete owner of the domain and even the domain extension in case it is your own one.

Among the main benefits of owning an NFT domain are the following:

  • Nobody can take this domain from you.
  • You can use it to create decentralised websites.
  • You can transfer it to absolutely anyone without asking for any type of permission.
  • You have complete control in terms of what happens this domain and how you will manage it.
  • You can use it as your own address for your cryptocurrency wallet address, to make it simple for people to work with, because the long wallet address can become a simple NFT domain, like “yourwallet.wallet”, for example.
