This step-by-step guide will help you get started with domains by teaching you how to navigate to the My Crypto Domain page, how to search and purchase a domain name, how to change your primary domain (if you have more than one), and more.

How to search and claim a domain
1. Navigate to the Crypto Domain page
2. Use the search bar at the top of the page to search for a domain name’s availability

How to set your primary domain
If you have only purchased one domain, it will automatically be set as your primary domain. However, if you purchase additional domains, you can select which domain you want to be your primary domain.
1. Navigate to the Crypto Domain page
2. Tap Manage Your Domains
3. In the image below we can see that the user has two crypto domains in their account. Their current primary domain ‘adalovelace.binanceus’ which they want to switch out, and a new domain ‘al.binanceus’ which they want to make their new primary domain.
Tap on the arrow on the right-hand side of the secondary domain to open additional options for that domain.
4. From the current secondary domains dropdown menu, tap Set Primary
5. Read the warning message and tap to Confirm your primary domain change
6. As you can see in the screenshot below, their primary domain has now been switched to ‘al.binanceus,’ and ‘adalovelace.binanceus' has become the secondary domain

How to send to and from a wallet using a domain
Sending to and from your crypto wallet using a domain name works the same as the regular methods for depositing and withdrawing crypto, with the following caveats:
- You must ensure that the cryptocurrency you choose are supported for domain deposits and withdrawals. Failure to do so will result in a loss of funds. You can review our updated list of domain-supported cryptocurrencies here.
- You will also need to confirm with the platform you are sending to or from that they support domain use and that they support your chosen cryptocurrency and network.
- You will enter your simple domain name into the address bar instead of a convoluted wallet address. If you want to confirm or copy your domain name, follow the steps in any of the options outlined below.
*IMPORTANTLY, using domains to send crypto that is not supported for domain use will result in lost funds, so please be sure to review the Crypto Domains Supported Cryptocurrencies page.
