The New Unstoppable Domains Extension .polygon

Exciting news for the Web3 community!

Unstoppable Domains has teamed up with Polygon and created a new extension .polygon. Unstoppable Domains can be held in your wallet and never need to be renewed. Now you can get a vanity domain with the .polygon extension, and for the first 48 hours you will get 25% off using this referral link:

Prices start at just $5 and have no renewal fees. Once purchased you own Unstoppable Domains forever or until you choose to transfer them to someone else.

Once they are in your wallet, only you hold the keys to your Unstoppable Domains.

Once you own an Unstoppable Domains what can you do with it?

  • You can use them as an easily shared “address” for many cryptocurrencies, like over 300 different cryptocurrencies can be added to a single domain. Many wallets allow for the use of Unstoppable Domains as the payment address that is entered in the address field and will resolve to the underlying payment address that is associated with the UD domain.
  • Use them as your login credentials on a growing number of websites.
  • Use your Unstoppable Domains as the URI to a website hosted on IPFS, while it is not required to have an Unstoppable Domains as the URI pointing to a site that is hosted on IPFS it makes for an easier way to find the correct content. Much like the crypto addresses are resolved from the Unstoppable Domains domain, the IPFS hash or CID is also resolved from the domain.

For the first 48 hours get 25% off the new .polygon Unstoppable Domains extensions using:

Add IPFS (Or Other) Protocol to a WordPress Site

If you have ever tried to place an IPFS link into a WordPress blog post only to later find that when you click on the link it goes nowhere. If we inspect the link with our browser’s developer tools we can see that a critical part of the URL has been removed. Because WordPress doesn’t recognize the ipfs:// protocol it is promptly removed by WordPress and substituted with an acceptable URL prococol usually http://.

How To Add An Unstoppable Domain As Custom Token To MetaMask

This is a repost of a formerly posted article that had a confusing title and needed some clarification.

This is the way to add Unstoppable Domains to an old Brave Wallet, while it does work with the new wallet, there is a bug that will not allow a zero decimal place when adding the token, if you use ‘1’ as the decimal place it makes the Unstoppable Domains show up as 0.1 if you have 1 UD or 0.2 if you have 2 UD. Also it should be noted the Contract Address is for .crypto domains only, the newer domain extensions (.wallet, .dao, .coin, .nft, etc.) use a different Contract Address, I will be updating this guide very soon and will post a link on this post when I get it finished.

Unstoppable Domains are a domain name extension somewhat similar to a .com or .org except that is on the Ethereum blockchain and ends in .crypto or on the Zilliqa blockchain and ends in .zil. Blockchain domains are stored inside a wallet as you would store a crypto-currency. An Unstoppable Domains blockchain domain can be used to build censorship-resistant websites, and used as an easier to remember crypto wallet addresses.
