ENS has similar goals to DNS, the Internet’s Domain Name Service, but has a significantly different #architecture due to the capabilities and constraints provided by the Ethereum blockchain. Like DNS, ENS operates on a system of dot-separated hierarchical names called domains, with the owner of a domain having full control over subdomains.
