Ethereum Name Service (ENS)By CoinGecko | Updated on Aug 12, 2021
The Ethereum Name Service (ENS) is a look-up service that allows Ethereum users to find websites or send and receive funds via simple names instead of complicated sequences of letters and numbers. ENS features a registry smart contract that keeps track of all domain names, subdomains, owners, resolvers, and other information, as well as allowing the owner to update it. It works like the Domain Name System (DNS), but ENS is decentralized and more secure.
