Fetch Address by ENS

Guide on how to fetch the address by an ENS name

What is ENS and how does it work?

The Ethereum Name Service (ENS) is a distributed, open, and extensible naming system based on the Ethereum blockchain. It can be used to resolve human-readable names to Ethereum addresses, and vice versa. ENS is designed to be censorship-resistant and to provide a higher level of security than traditional DNS. It is also intended to be more user-friendly than traditional DNS, requiring no special software or configuration. ENS is still in development, but is already functional on the main Ethereum network.
