Register .MKE Domains

Leading Wisconsin on the Handshake Blockchain

.MKE represents Milwaukee, Wisconsin and is among the first top-level domains available for registration on the Handshake Blockchain.

Established in 1846, Milwaukee is Wisconsin’s most populous city and is well known as an innovative, cultural hub.

We’re proud to present the opportunity to contribute to this legacy and look forward to seeing what you develop on your .MKE domain!

We are also excited to announce that 10% of net proceeds from .MKE will be donated to local causes chosen by registrants.

Handshake is an experimental peer-to-peer root DNS

Handshake is a proof-of-work protocol like Bitcoin, except unlike Bitcoin where you only use the coins as money, Handshake coins (HNS) are also used to register names on the Handshake blockchain. Handshake names are top-level domain names (.com, .net, .org) but unlike traditional domain names that you can only rent, you truly own your Handshake names forever, which no one can take from you nor prevent others from accessing. And rather than being limited to renting from a small number of extensions like .com and .org, you can own and use almost any extension you can think of, including ones with Chinese characters, Russian characters, and even emojis!

These domains do not resolve on regular DNS sites. Use the search engine below to access Handshake names.
