Unstoppable Domains: Create a Decentralized Website Using Unstoppable Domains and IPFS Folders
Learn how to create a decentralized website using Unstoppable Domains and IPFS folders on Filebase.
Unstoppable Domains are NFT domains that are associated with a crypto wallet and minted on blockchain networks, just like other forms of NFTs like image or music files. Unstoppable Domains can be used with DNS CNAME records like traditional domain names, meaning you can use an Unstoppable Domain as a domain name for a personal website or blog.

Select ‘Domains’ then ‘Domain Search’.
Select the one you’d like to purchase.
Select ‘Free Mint’ to mint your domain on the Polygon network.
Minting is the process of converting a digital file into a crypto collectible or digital asset on a blockchain network. In this case, we are minting our digital asset, our domain, on the Polygon blockchain network.
In this tutorial, we’ll use MetaMask.
Select “Track Progress” to view the status of your minting transaction.
