Tezos Domains is a distributed, open and extensible naming system using the Tezos blockchain.
The main function is to translate a meaningful and user-friendly alias to it's corresponding Tezos address and vice versa. This translation is globally consistent so that all users see the same address for a given alias.

We are currently pricing all domains at 1 per year.
The initial auction period may drive the prices of popular domains higher. The higher price will only be paid for the first year. Renewals for following years will have standard pricing.
To ensure fairness when distributing domains when we launch.
Without auctions, people could spam the network with thousands of automatic registration requests within minutes from launch. The default auction period will only take 3 weeks from start to finish, because we want to open Tezos Domains to direct registrations as soon as possible.

Initially, registration will be open for domain names that are at least 5 characters long (not including the top-level domain .tez). We plan on opening registration for shorter domains later this year.
We currently only allow names with latin characters, numbers and hyphens. International (Unicode) names are a strong possibility in the future though.
You can use Gravatar to add an avatar to your domain. To do this, simply:
When you are outbid by someone else, the former highest bid is safely stored in the contract. You can either use the balance to place another bid or withdraw it at any time.
