EnCirca has been tapped by ICANN to handle the bulk transfers from a number of discontinued registrars.
First, please confirm if your domain has been transferred to EnCirca by checking: https://lookup.icann.org/.
Please DO NOT create a new EnCirca account if you are a new customer! We will create your account when we transfer your domains. You will receive a further email with login instructions when your account is created.
We anticipate that many domains will remain unclaimed due to bounced emails or inoperable proxy services. Locating rightful owners will be problematic since the data escrow is often devoid of any identifying ownership information.
To mitigate for these challenges, EnCirca has created this special claims form.
We support your domain needs from start to finish.
There are many internet browsers that support Handshake domains such as Opera and various Chrome plugins.
Please visit Access Handshake names for more options on how to view your Handshake domains
NextDNS is one of the most popular methods for accessing Handshake domain names. Install NextDNS. You can click “try it now” on nextdns.io to connect your device and resolve Handshake domains. Scroll to the Setup Guide at NextDNS to select the option for your device, confirm with the green button at the top of the page, and then go to the “settings” tab to “resolve Handshake domains.”
Install the Resolvr add-on to view Handshake names directly in the search bar of your Firefox browser.
Try searching your site with the HNS.to gateway, which allows you to access Handshake names without downloading software or modifying your DNS settings. You may also conduct searches directly by prefixing Handshake domains with “hns.to/,” such as “hns.to/welcome.nb/.”
