What are Unstoppable Domains?

Unstoppable Domains are NFT domains that are associated with a crypto wallet and minted on blockchain networks, just like other forms of NFTs like image or music files. Unstoppable Domains can be used with DNS CNAME records like traditional domain names, meaning you can use an Unstoppable Domain as a domain name for a personal website or blog.

Read below to learn how to use Unstoppable Domains with Filebase.


  • Purchase and mint an Unstoppable Domain.
  • Sign up for a free Filebase account.
  • Create a Filebase IPFS bucket.
  • Upload website files, such as index.html, and any other website source files into this Filebase IPFS bucket as a folder. Learn more about uploading folders to IPFS here.

Select ‘Manage’ next to the domain you want to use with your website.

2. Select ‘Website’ from the left side bar menu.

3. Select ‘Link Website’ under ‘Custom website linking’:

4. Paste in your IPFS CID for your folder that was uploaded to Filebase.
