Using a Handshake Name

To use your handshake name, you will need to modify the DNS records for it. In the following steps I will guide you through this process!

Your Handshake Name:

  1. Fill out the above fields (the first should be filled out for you) and then log into your Namebase account. On your dashboard, you should see a box labeled 'Your Domains'. In this box should be a list of your domains (if you don't see them all, you may need to click 'Manage All'). Next to the domain you want to use, click the blue 'Edit DNS' link.
  2. Scroll down to the 'Blockchain DNS records' category and click 'Add new record' (note: this transaction will have a small cost).
  3. For the type, select TXT. For the value/data, paste the following:
  4. Click save and wait for your changes to finish syncing

You can now access your website at the following url:
