Integrate a DNS name (V3)

Apart from using ENS names like snowowl.eth, ENS also allows you to integrate existing DNS domain names with ENS to supercharge them with ENS functionality.


You can only integrate existing DNS domain names that you own with ENS. You cannot create new domain names with non-existing TLD's this way.

Integrating a DNS name

Go to the ENS Manager App, connect your wallet, search for your DNS domain name and click on it to continue.

1. Enable DNSSEC

Before you can integrate an existing DNS domain name with ENS you'll need to enable DNSSEC for the domain name. Not all registrars or hosting providers support DNSSEC, and some only support it as an additional paid service.

Once you've enabled DNSSEC press Check to continue.


In order for your registrars or hosting providers DNSSEC to work with ENS it must use either RSA/SHA-256 or ECDSA keys.

If they don’t, you’ll need to migrate to a DNS provider that does. See Hosting providers below.

2. Add the TXT-record

In this step you'll need to add a TXT-record to your domain name to provide ownership of it, using your registrar or hosting provider's management interface.

The DNS Registrar on ENS looks for a TXT record to verify ownership of the domain. This record has the following attributes:

Contentsa=wallet address

To prove ownership of your DNS name, create a TXT record in your DNS zone,, with text data of the form a=walletaddress... where walletaddress is the Ethereum wallet you want to give control of the ENS record to.

3. Claim the DNS domain

Now you should be able to go back to the ENS Manager App and finish linking the DNS name with ENS by pressing Register.


I’ve updated the DNS records, but it’s not proceeding to the next steps.

It can take time for record changes in DNS to propagate throughout the Internet. If you are sure the records are set properly, try waiting for some amount of time and refreshing the DNS import page.

Use a DNSSEC Analyzer tool to look for errors.
