How to claim your .zil domains and create your wallet?

Video tutorial available here.

Claiming is the process of pushing your domains from our database, on to the blockchain, and into your cryptocurrency wallet. Once a domain is claimed, the user has full custody over their domain. If you wish to sell or gift a domain you must first claim the domain.


  1. Select "My Domains"

  1. Go to .zil tab, select domains you want to claim and click on "CLAIM .ZIL"

  1. Select "Create Wallet". If you already have a ZIL wallet with keystore/passphrase, go to Step 6.

  1. Create Passphrase (store this passphrase in a safe place). Your passphrase can be any phrase you choose with a minimum 8 characters. We recommend 13 characters in length.

  1. Download your "Keystore" file. Store your keystore file in a safe place! If you lose it, you will lose access to your domains.

  1. Now that you have created your self-custody wallet you can select "Import Wallet"

  1. Upload your keystore (the file you downloaded in step 5) and enter your passphrase

  1. Select "I Understand" and "Confirm"

  1. Congratulations! You have now taken full custody of your .zil domain and you own it for life!
