NFT domains are domains that live on a public blockchain and give users complete ownership of their stored data. The main benefits to owning one are simplifying crypto transactions by replacing wallet addresses with the domain name and easily creating and hosting websites on web3.

What are the main features of an NFT Domain Name?

Unlike traditional domain names that simply serve as a mechanism to show content on a server, NFT Domain Names can do that and also comes with various other benefits and abilities:

  • One-time purchase, own forever!
    There are no renewal fees for Crypto domains. You pay the price and it is yours forever.
  • Simpler Deposit Addresses
    This is an example of a typical Ethereum deposit address: 0xb794f5ea0ba39494ce839613fffba74279579268 As you can see, memorising this code is going to be extremely difficult to do. However, if you own "yourname.crypto", then people can send Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies directly to "yourname.crypto" instead of that really long deposit address.
  • Log in with your domain name

  • Hosting and E-mail
    While there are limitations, it is possible to host a site on an NFT Domain Name and also to host e-mail on an NFT Domain Name (although only .crypto is currently supported for email).

NFT Domain Name Limitations

NFT Domain Names are a very new player in the field and therefore a lot of the benefits will only be established over time. Below are some of the main limitations to consider before buying an NFT Domain Name.

  • E-mail Support
    You can only host e-mails on .crypto domain names. Support for other domain names will be added over time but it is difficult to say when, as it has already been a year since .crypto email support has been added but no support for any other NFT domain names.
  • Hosting a website
    You can easily forward your NFT Domain Name to another Domain Name. For example, if someone types in namhost.crypto right now, they will end up at namhost.com. However, if you wish for an actual site to be hosted on your NFT Domain Name, things work a little differently.

Can I manage my NFT Domain Name on Namhost?

No, unfortunately, your Domain Name will have to be transferred to your own Wallet and from there you will be able to configure it as needed.
