Harnessing the Power of ENS Domains and Spheron Network

Play this article

ENS (Ethereum Name Service) domains provide a decentralized naming system on the Ethereum blockchain, contrasting the traditional DNS (Domain Name System).

They both serve the same fundamental purpose: utilizing domain names to map intricate addresses. However, the distinction lies in their approach. DNS translates domain names into IP addresses, while ENS employs .eth domain names to reference Ethereum addresses, IPFS file hashes, or Tor .onion addresses!

Imagine facing the challenge of remembering a long 42-character hexadecimal ETH wallet address like “obn786df3dnd1204422…” in favor of an ENS domain like example.eth. This substitution streamlines transfers via ENS-compatible wallets, sidestepping the need to type the exhaustive hexadecimal string.

But ENS domain names extend beyond mnemonic wallet addresses or quick access to IPFS-hosted images. ENS propels websites, Dapps, and an array of Dweb resources into the realm of accessibility through a decentralized, censorship-resistant domain naming system governed by users.

Unlike DNS's centralization, ENS thrives within Ethereum smart contracts, ensuring resilience against censorship. This blog explores ENS's power and guides you through connecting your ENS domain to a Static Site on Spheron Network And taking advantage of the power of decentralization.

ENS Domain vs. DNS


ENS Domain






Owned by the user

Owned by a registrar


More secure as it is not controlled by a single entity

Less secure, as a few large organizations control it


Can scale to meet the demands of the growing Web3 ecosystem

It can be slow to scale, as it is reliant on a large number of DNS servers


More flexible, as it can be used to name a variety of Web3 resources, such as Ethereum addresses, NFTs, and decentralized websites

Less flexible, as it is primarily used to name websites


Decentralized, immutable, censorship-resistant, user-owned and controlled

Centralized, mutable, vulnerable to censorship, not user-owned or controlled

Used For

Decentralized websites and apps, Dapps, DeFi, NFTs, DAOs, wallets, IPFS

Traditional websites

How to Buy and Register ENS Domains?

You may skip this section if you have already registered your ENS Domain. If Not, then follow the steps below.

  1. To claim your first ENS domain, head to the Ethereum Name Service application and enter the address or name you'd like to register in the search bar. Make sure it's at least three characters long (there's no upper limit), and you can include emojis.

2. To complete the registration process for your ENS domain, you'll need to connect to the main network by selecting one of the available integration options for the wallet, such as MetaMask, WalletConnect, Rainbow, Coinbase Wallet, Ledger Live or Argent. For this example, we'll use MetaMask. This connection will allow you to pay the registration fee and officially claim ownership of your ENS domain.

3. Next, You can choose how long you want to register for. The minimum is usually a year, but there's no maximum limit. Do note that the gas fee remains the same regardless if you register for one year or 10 years.

You get the option of credit and debit cards to pay the fee. But for example, we are using a meta mask, so Click "Connect". A box should pop up from MetaMask, and select the preferred gas fee. You can leave it to default settings (Average). Click "Confirm" to approve the transaction.

4.After initiating the registration process, remain on the page and allow the system to complete the necessary steps. This may take a few moments, so please be patient.

Once the registration process is underway, wait an additional minute to ensure no other party attempts to claim the same name. You can monitor the progress of your registration through a green bar displayed prominently on the screen.

5.Upon completing the waiting period, you'll notice a line of orange text prompting you to click a " Register " button to proceed to the next stage. Click on the blue “Register” button. Submit the transaction, and once it is confirmed, your ENS is registered!

Now that you know how to get an ENS domain let’s see how to host an ENS domain with your Static Site using Spheron Network!

How to connect your ENS Domain with the Static Site on Spheron Network

Follow these steps to integrate an ENS domain with your Static Site on the Spheron Network.

Step 1: Create a Free Spheron Network Account

  1. Visit Spheron Network:

  2. On the Spheron homepage, locate and click the "Free Trial" button.

  3. You'll be directed to a login/signup page. Choose your preferred authentication method: GitHub account, GitLab account, or Bitbucket account.

  4. Follow the provided prompts to authenticate your chosen account securely. This step ensures safe access to the Spheron Network platform.

  5. After successful authentication, you'll be guided to a confirmation page confirming the completion of your account setup.

Step 2: Create an Organization

  1. Upon logging in, you'll be directed to a page to create your organization's name, username, and Avatar. Ensure the "Static Site" option is selected from the drop-down menu at the top right corner. And click “Save”.

  2. Next, you'll be taken to a new page. Click the "New Project" button.

Step 3: Deploying your Static Site With Spheron Platform UI

  1. Next, You will see a new page. Select your preferred Git provider from the options and authorize Spheron to access your Static Site's repository.

  2. Choose your App repository from the list of available repositories. You can use many popular frameworks, like Gatsby, Hugo, Next.js, React, Vue, Vanilla JS, etc. We have specific guides for each framework to help you to prepare your site.

  3. Select the protocol you want to use for deployment. As of now, Spheron supports Arweave, Filecoin, and IPFS.

  4. The next step is to add build parameters. Spheron can auto-detect the required build parameters from the inputted framework, but you can find advanced settings/configurations and a detailed explanation in the guides according to frameworks.

  5. Click the "Deploy" button to initiate the deployment process.

That's it! Your Static Site will now be deployed to the selected protocol using the Spheron Platform UI.

Note: The first time you want to deploy your project, you need to do it manually through the dashboard. But after that, Spheron makes things easier. From the next time onwards, when you make any new changes and save them, Spheron will automatically trigger a new build and deployment of your project with those changes. This happens every time you push new changes to your project on GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket.

Step 4: Connect your ENS domain with Spheron Network

Follow these steps for configuring your ENS domain on the Spheron Platform:

1. Open your project in the chosen platform.

2.Proceed to the "Domains" tab and click on “ENS Domain” at the left sidebar to access the "Configure your ENS Domains/Subdomains" segment.

3. Enter your ENS Domain name.
