Can someone please thoroughly explain to me how to renew a .id username?

#1

Please explain to me like I’m 7 years old. If it involves CL please spell out the specific commands to do so.

Thanks so much for your time.

@blockchain.id

  1. Install the Blockstack CLI (how to).
  2. Get your owner key with the get_owner_keys command.
  3. Get your payment key from your backup phrase with get_payment_key command.
  4. Pass these two values along with your id to the renew command.

You can see an example of renew in our CLI docs:

$ # Tip: you can get your owner key from your backup phrase with "get_owner_keys".
$ # Tip: you can get your payment key from your backup phrase with "get_payment_key".
$ export OWNER="136ff26efa5db6f06b28f9c8c7a0216a1a52598045162abfe435d13036154a1b01"
$ export PAYMENT="bfeffdf57f29b0cc1fab9ea197bb1413da2561fe4b83e962c7f02fbbe2b1cd5401"
$ blockstack-cli renew hello_world.id "$OWNER" "$PAYMENT"

Hope this helps, let us know if you need more information. I’ve added an issue to the documentation to explain renewal better.

After downloading the CLI it’s asking for password. Im not sure what this password would be.
