Everything You Need to Know about NFT Domains
NFT domains are new extensions like .crypto, .nft, or .blockchain (like .com, .net, or .org) that were introduced as smart contracts on public blockchains.
Except for.zil, which runs on Zilliqa, all NFT domains are ERC-721 (NFTs) on the Ethereum and Polygon networks.”
Unlike traditional domains, which are leased by a single authority, NFT domains are self-stored in a wallet by the owner, similar to bitcoin, and no third party can take them away or remove their content. NFT domains don’t need to be renewed, and you can keep them for as long as you want.
A self-custody option is conceivable since your domain is a blockchain asset that may be stored in your wallet like a cryptocurrency. This custodial approach bestows “super-powers” on your NFT domain that ordinary domains lack.

Because your NFT domain is self-custody, it:
- It’s a global login that may be used across apps and websites.
- A third party cannot seize your property.
- Deployment of decentralized websites is possible.
- Can be sent over the world in a matter of seconds without the need for approval from a third party.
- Gives the domain owner complete control and access to domain management options, such as adding crypto addresses to make payments easier and directing website content to your domain.

How to Buy an NFT domain?
You only have to pay once, and the domain is yours for life, with no renewal fees. The current pricing tiers for available domains can be seen here. They currently accept credit cards, Paypal, cryptocurrency payments (BTC, BCH, ETH, DAI, LTC, USDC), and Crypto.com pay.
If you’re sending crypto from an exchange, double-check that you’re sending enough to cover the costs and still have enough to pay for your order.
Some exchangers deduct fees from the amount you plan to transfer, resulting in your order being underpaid if you do not cover these costs.
Note: For payments with crypto, use Main chains only.
