Delegating Domain Management

This page outlines the features of creating a custom smart contract for flexible permission models. This technique works for CNS, ZNS, and UNS.

Creating a custom smart contract is a way to implement a flexible permission model over domain records, which allows you to delegate the domain management to someone else. This may include:

  • Community-owned domains — where individual members of a community decide on a domain website content.

  • Domain leasing — where a domain is temporarily managed by a different authority and then comes back to the original authority.

A custom smart contract can be implemented as a separate contract.

The Twitter Validation Operator is an example of a smart contract with a flexible permission model.
