Tips On Finding The Ideal Domain Name
Frequently asked questions
A domain name is essentially online real estate. The registration of this domain name provides temporary ownership over that real estate. Domain registrations allow the registrant to “build” on this property (such as example.com) by offering services such as websites, email, and FTP for personal, commercial, or public use.
The domain registration only includes rights to the domain name you purchase (such as example.com) for the period of time you leased the domain registration, usually one to ten years. With this registration you can set the contact information for the domain, change the nameserver delegation, and add glue records.
Domain registrations do not by itself include any other services, such as DNS, email, etc.
WHOIS is a query and response protocol that provides information about the domain holder, the date of registration and expiration, whether or not the domain name is available, etc. You can check WHOIS information by searching for an available domain name on our homepage, let’s see how it works. In case the domain already exists, you’ll be able to see the WHOIS information below.
There are a couple of things you need to know before registering a domain name. With a credible and reputable domain service, you will certainly have someone trustworthy to guide you through the process and possible dilemmas, so here’s just an overview of some precaution steps:
• In case you are buying a previously owned domain name, you need to investigate that domain’s history and reputation (check previous WHOIS information, whether or not that domain has ever been banned by Google, or if it is perhaps protected with a trademark)
• Brainstorm your domain name before registering and check whether or not it’s available as a username across social networks
• Watch out for hidden fees (some registrars are not very transparent about additional fees that come with editing WHOIS information, transfer fees, or domain name renewal costs)
Per ICANN policy a domain cannot be transferred within 60 days of its registration or last transfer. This applies to domain registrations being transferred to us as well as away from us.
