How To Mint Your First PNS Name (Video)

Step 1: Make sure you have an EVM-enabled Wallet

If you are on a desktop we recommend MetaMask, which is compatible with the Chrome, Firefox or Brave browser. Here's a beginner's guide on how to setup your MetaMask wallet on a desktop device.
If you are on a mobile phone we recommend MetaMask Mobile, TrustWallet, or Rainbow wallet. All of these work on iOS or Android device.
For advanced users, you can also purchase your domain name via a hardware wallet like Ledger or Trezor.
This guide will assume you are using MetaMask on a desktop browser, but other browsers and wallets should work very similarly.

Step 2: Add the PulseChain Testnet RPC settings

Pulse Domains is only available on PulseChain Testnet v4, as PulseChain Mainnet has not launched yet. Any domain names purchased on testnet, will not be transferred over to Mainnet.
Once PulseChain mainnet launches, you can expect Pulse Domains to be available there.
  • In Metamask click the Networks drop-down and select "Custom Network"
  • Enter the following information and save:
Network Name: PulseChain Testnet
Chain ID: 943
Currency Symbol: tPLS

Step 3: Navigate to the Pulse Domains App

Step 4: Enter your desired domain name

  • .pls domains must be 3 characters or longer.
  • Keep in mind you can also select emojis 🙃

Step 5: Select the ownership length

  • .pls domain names start at $5/year paid in PLS, however on testnet they are below 1 tPLS
  • .pls domain names can be owned indefinitely, as long as this annual fee is paid.

Step 6: Update your profile

  • You can include as much or as little information about yourself or your online identity. Check out our Preserving Your Privacy guide if you are uncertain about what information you might want to include.
  • Keep in mind you can always update your profile after you purchased your .pls domain.

Step 7: Finalize your domain purchase

  • To ensure no one claims a name at the same time, there is a waiting period of 60 seconds required.
  • You will be signing a total of 2 transactions to finalize a purchase. The first transaction is to set the timer and the second transaction is to initiate the payment.

Step 8. Congrats you are now the proud owner of a .pls domain name 🥳

  • Congrats! Now navigate to "View Name" to update your profile or register another .pls name.
