Get yourself a Nostr name (NIP-05 identifier)

Type your name to check if it's available:
Only use letters a-z, numbers 0-9 and "_", "-" or ".", from 2 to 32 symbols.
What is NIP-05 name?

It is a human-readable name (alias or identifier) that you can set by editing your Nostr profile. This makes it simpler for other people to remember your alias (instead of your public key), and simpler to mention you in their posts by typing instead of @npub1xxx. Besides, many apps add some kind of "verified" check mark like , which makes your profile look more trustworthy.

Can I change my NIP-05 name later?

Yes you can, just buy a new alias on another service or set up one on your own domain. Then update your profile to set the new alias, and you're good to go. All Nostr clients will recognize the change and use your new alias everywhere.
