Domain Names Defined

One of the fundamentals you demand in order to open a website is a domain. This is the web address your web page visitors will write in their browsers to see your site and it is one of the things they will identify you with. Hence you should go for a domain that is good and descriptive, but it should also be easy to remember.

Registries - The Real Domain Providers

Each domain extension, or TLD (top-level domain name), is handled by a Registry. This is the top-level organization that handles all domain registrations and determines the prerequisites for each specific Top-Level Domain. A variety of domain Registrars operate under the Registry. These are accredited firms that supply the actual domain registration service, take care of any extra registration rules and charge the end customers.

Generic or Country Code TLDs?

When selecting a domain, you should think about its TLD. Whether it will be a generic top-level domain name like .com, .info, .name, or a country code Top-Level Domain such as .ca, .es or .co.nz, is determined by the target visitors and on the intention of your portal, but also on your wish, so when you are looking for a domain registration company where you can register your domain name, make sure that you pick one with an immense selection of domain name extensions. In this way, you can be certain that you will make the best possible choice and if you register a couple of domain names for your personal or company web site, they all will be in one single location, not scattered among numerous individual companies.

Registrants - The Authentic Domain Proprietors

When you register a domain, you become the domain name Registrant, or its holder. You can specify a different person as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain name if someone else is responsible for your portal, which will allow you to attend just to facets regarding the proprietorship or certain payment issues.

Domain Registration Intervals: One to Ten Years

Most domains are registered for a period of one to ten years, but some particular Top-Level Domains can be registered for at least two years, or for no more than five, for example. You can also transfer your domain name between different domain name registrars and once again, different TLDs involve different preconditions for that. Before you register your domain, it is commendable to get informed about what given requirements there are for the particular top-level domain name that you've settled on. A pertinent example is the domain names chart at our website where you can have a glance at quite a vast collection of offered domain name extensions and exhaustive information concerning the transfer and pre-registration prerequisites involved, as well as the registration term for some of the more peculiar top-level domain names.

Redemption Grace Periods (RGP): 30 to 45 Days

Always be sure to learn about the re-registration procedure requirements before your domain registration expires. Some domain names cannot be renewed after they run out, and for others you have one mo. after the expiration date to renew them. The general rule is that when a domain runs out, it is either removed after a specific interval, or the domain registrar takes over ownership of the domain provided that you, the possessor, have not manifested any intention of registering it again. For this reason you should constantly monitor the expiration date of your domain names or you will jeopardize losing them. For certain top-level domain names like .com or .net, you have thirty days after the expiry date, whereas with others, such as .eu - you lose ownership of the domain as soon as it runs out and you have to wait 30 to 45 days before you can re-register it.
