Set Controller

Setting a controller in ENS involves designating an Ethereum address to manage your ENS domain. This controller has the authority to update or change the records associated with the domain, like Ethereum addresses, IPFS hashes, or text records. It's a way to delegate domain management while retaining ownership.

Important: Remember, the owner of an ENS domain can always change or revoke a controller's permissions. Choose your controller carefully, as they'll have significant control over your domain's settings and linked records.
