Moved to PorkBun a year ago. Transition was smooth, and I just had to renew my domain. They've been a great experience, and their newsletter is fun.
There are no refunds on Handshake domains. No exceptions. Don't even ask. Seriously.
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
There are no guarantees with Handshake domains. You may not be able to renew Handshake domains upon expiration and, although the chances are very small, there's a chance that the TLD you purchase the domain on top of could stop functioning prior to expiration.
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.
While you're here, you can read more about how to access Handshake domains. You can also try out Beacon or Aloha, browsers that support Handshake domains. Want to own your own Handshake TLD? Visit namebase.
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.
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!
