Handshake Registry FAQ

 

  • How can I sell my handshake domain with EnCirca?

    As an EnCirca Handshake Partner, you may promote Handshake domain searches in two ways: on our EnCirca site and on your own website.

    • At EnCirca

      Navigate to your tld (for example, the link for .TXT is https://www.encirca.com/handshake-txt). Replace .txt with your tld name. Once there, you will see a search widget and some general information about your TLD. If you would like to provide us creative content to customize your landing page, please email us at support@encirca.com.

    • On your own website

      We also provide customized code that can be embedded in any web page. In order to receive instructions and the code, please go here to order the "Handshake Registry Widget" product. Once your request has been approved, we will send you the code and info needed to add it to your site. If you do not have an account with EnCirca, you will need to create one before being able to receive access to our code widget. You can create an account by going to https://manage20.encirca.com and clicking on the "Sign Up" button.
