Friendly Names
On Tezos

Use names like alice.tez instead of addresses like tz1VBLpuDKMoJuHRLZ4HrCgRuiLpEr7zZx2E.

Easy to share

Forget copying and pasting long addresses. Share your .tez name instead!

Make transacting a breeze

Just enter the recipients .tez name. No more stress about sending to the wrong address.

Naming for wallets

Have other people's wallets display your name when you send them money, and vice versa.

Decentralized and under your control

Tezos names are FA2-compliant NFTs which you own and control. Just like cryptocurrency, your names are stored securely in your wallet and only you can manage and move them.

Open source & cryptographically secure

Domain names are stored on the Tezos blockchain. Audited, open source smart contracts ensure that sending funds to a Tezos domain name is as secure as sending to a regular address.

Your own personal namespace

By registering a domain like alice.tez, you get control of your own personal namespace. Use it to associate addreses, share your avatar, publish contact information and more.

Unlimited subdomains

Create unlimited subdomains under your Tezos name (like something.alice.tez), and even lend them to other people!

Public profile

Attach publicly visible profile information to your Tezos name, like your website url, a physical address, or links to your social media profiles.

Decentralized websites

Get ready for Web 3.0. Use a Tezos name you own to point to a decentralized website of the future.

Full support across the ecosystem

Tezos Domains are supported by major wallets and other projects


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 its corresponding Tezos address and vice versa. This translation is globally consistent so that all users see the same address for a given alias.

The pricing of domains depends on the length:

  • Five-letter domains and longer cost 1 per year.
  • Four-letter domains cost 25 per year.
  • Three-letter domains cost 100 per year.

Auctions may drive the prices of popular domains higher. You will only pay the higher price for the first year, and renewals for the following years will have standard pricing.

To ensure fairness when distributing domains when we launch and when domains expire.

Without auctions, people could spam the network with automatic registration requests and gain an unfair advantage. The default auction period currently only takes one week from start to finish. If there are no bids, the domain is open to direct registration.

Domains that are three characters or longer (not including the top-level domain .tez) can be registered at the moment.

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:

  1. If you don't have a Gravatar account, start by creating one and setting up your avatar.
  2. Create an MD5 hash of your email. This can be done using a 3rd-party application available at Please note that we are not responsible for any issues that may arise from the use of this third-party application.
  3. On the detail page of your Tezos Domain, click Edit and then open the Additional Data list.
  4. In the Add new key picker, select Gravatar Hash, and hit Add key. Then paste the hash in the Gravatar Hash field and save the domain
