DNS Domain Setup

Step-by-Step Guide to Importing a DNS Domain Name to PNS
This guide will give you step-by-step instructions of how to import a DNS domain name (.com, .net, .xyz etc.) you already own into PNS.
You must own the DNS name and have access to the DNS settings in order to import your DNS name.

  • Visit our official site app.pulse.domains
  • Connect your wallet.
  • If you have difficulties connecting, please follow the steps in our Domain Registration Guide below.

Step 3: Enable DNSSEC

Depending on your DNS registrar it may take up to 24h for DNSSEC to be recognized. However, usually it takes 5-30 min.

Step 4: Add Text Records

  • Here are the list of all major registers and their instructions on how to update your TXT records. The below example uses Namecheap.com for illustrative purposes.

Step 4: Claim & Confirm the Transaction

  • Claiming your DNS name is free of charge and you only pay the network fee for the claiming transaction.

Step 5: Setup Your Profile

  • Similar to any other .pls domain you can modify your profile to your liking, as well as set it as your primary name in the PNS registery.
  • Keep in mind when you claim your DNS name you are assigned as the Owner, but rather as the Manager.

FAQ

Can I register any DNS domains through the PNS app?

At this stage we support about 90% of all Top Level Domain names, this includes TDLs such as .com, .net, .org, .co, .us, .gov, .edu, .info, .xyz, .ly, .site, .me, au, etc.

If I own example.com DNS name, can I claim for example.pls

Nope, .pls domain names are managed completely separately.

Once I register the domain, how can I transfer or delete ownership?

Unlike . pls permanent registrar, there is no notion of "registrant" which can transfer the ownership of the controller. If you want to transfer the ownership to any address other than the currently registered address, please update the corresponding DNS record from your DNS manager and click "Transfer" from our PNS manager.
We currently haven't enabled the ability to delete the ownership. Having said that, you can achieve the same effect if you set the owner record to a= 0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000 then click "Transfer" from the PNS manager.

Can I register my DNS subdomain?

No. DNSSEC registration is only enabled for the second level domain (eg: example.xyz). If you want to create subdomain.example.xyz, then click "Subdomains" tab of our manager and create it from the PNS manager just like other subdomains under .pls.
