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:
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.

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.

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.
