By far my favorite TLD experiences have all come through using Porkbun. It is, indeed, an oddly satisfying experience. Great prices, great first year discounts, an intuitive platform, free WHOIS privacy, and more. Keep it up Porkbun.
Handshake is an experimental and permissionless naming protocol that uses blockchain technology to create a decentralized root zone, as opposed to a centralized root zone regulated by ICANN. You can read more about the Handshake protocol at handshake.org
Because Handshake domain names do not use the same root zone as other domains on the internet they do not currently resolve like normal domains, they require special browser plugins or network configurations. Furthermore, Porkbun services such as email and SSL certificate generation don't work on Handshake domains. You can read more about how to access Handshake domains here.
There are no refunds on Handshake domains. No exceptions. Don't even ask. Seriously.
Free WHOIS Privacy *
Keep your private contact information hidden from prying eyes with our WHOIS privacy service. Most registrars charge for this service; we believe your privacy shouldn't come at a price.
Free SSL Certificates
Security is important and that's why we offer Let's Encrypt SSL certificates at no charge for all supported domains. We'll even auto renew them for you!
