A @herotag makes it easy to remember a wallet address for the most people. Some exceptional people can remember a full 63 character wallet address like this: erd19lsleldqeaf8myvhyd7j4xzu8wk7ehd62xevmv5kccejpehxf6xssspxns.
Here is how you can register your @herotag for your address in Elrond DNS Service.
On xPortal (formerly known as Maiar App)
Here it is really easy. Just press register your @herotag, select your herotag and register it when it is still available.
Congratulations! You are done!
When you are using another type of wallet, the other options may fit you.
Using erdpy dns register
erdpy is a command line tool to interact with MultiversX blockchain. It is available for Linux and Mac. Here you can find out hot to install and update erdpy: https://docs.elrond.com/sdk-and-tools/erdpy/installing-erdpy/
When erdpy is running, you need your private key of the wallet your want to register your @herotag for. The private key is stored in a .pem file.
If you have your 24 words, but not a .pem file you can use erdpy to create your .pem file:
erdpy –verbose wallet derive walletKey.pem –mnemonic
> here you paste your twenty four words of your wallet et cetera
Now you private key is in the file walletKey.pem
Let’s check in with network you want to register the herotag.

erdpy dns register –recall-nonce –name=your_hero_tag.elrond –gas-limit=70000000 –pem=walletKey.pem –pem-index=0 –outfile=.json –send
Please replace your herotag at the name parameter. Please note:
a-z and 0-9 are possible to use. No upper case and no other characters. The herotag has to end with .elrond.
