Embark on your Unstoppable journey with our guide:

Our domains are new extensions (similar to .com or .net) launched as smart contracts on public blockchains. 

All our Web3 domains are ERC-721 (NFTs) on the Ethereum or Polygon network. 

While traditional domains are leased by a single authority, Web3 Domains are self-stored in a wallet by the owner, much like a cryptocurrency, and no third party can take them away or take down their content. Our domains need no renewals; you can own them for life. 

self-custody solution is possible because your domain is an asset on the blockchain and stored like a cryptocurrency in your wallet. This custody method gives your Web3 domain “super-powers” that traditional domains do not have.

Due to the self-custody nature of your Web3 domain it:

  • Can be used as a universal username across apps and websites.

  • Cannot be seized by a third party.

  • Can deploy decentralized websites.

  • Can be transferred around the world in seconds without needing permission from any third party.

  • Gives the owner sole control and access to domain management features - adding crypto addresses for simplifying payments and pointing website content to your domain.

 Pay once, and you own the domain for life, with no renewal fees.

  • Here you can find the current pricing tiers for available domains.
  • We currently have 4 payment methods: Credit card, Paypal, and pay.

    If you are sending a crypto payment from an exchange please be sure you are sending enough to cover the cost of fees and still have enough to pay for your order. 

    Some exchanges will take the fees from the amount you wish to send, which means if you do not cover these costs your order will be Underpaid.

Note: For payments with crypto, please be careful and ensure you are sending on the coorrect chain. Below is a list of our current supported crypto's for paying, and chains they should be sent on:

When buying a domain, you will be asked if you wish to claim your domain to your own wallet, or purchase an Unstoppable Vault:

Self-custody: Self-custody is free. Please ensure you claim your domain to your own non-custodial wallet within 7 days.

Unstoppable Vault: An individual Vault costs $4/year for domains under $100 and $10/year for domain $100 and up.

Bulk Unstoppable Vault:  For $99/year, store unlimited number of domains in your Vault.

The Unstoppable Vault is a new custody solution from Unstoppable that gives you flexibility in how you store your Web3 domains. We’ll secure your domains in a private domain vault created specifically for you. Just like with a self-custodial wallet, your domains will be claimed on-chain and verifiably owned by you. You can read our blog post here.
