What are Domains

Among the necessities you demand so as to possess an online portal is a domain. This is the web address your visitors will write in their browsers to get to your web site and it is amongst the things they will identify you with. For that reason you should go for a domain that is suitable and explanatory, but it should also be simple to remember.

Registries - The Real Domain Caterers

Each domain extension, or TLD (top-level domain name), is administered by a Registry. This is the top-level institution that manages all domain registrations and defines the prerequisites for a specific Top-Level Domain. A variety of domain Registrars function under the Registry. These are accredited suppliers that deliver the actual domain registration service, deal with any additional registration requirements and charge the end customers.

Generic or Country Code Top-Level Domain Names?

When choosing a domain, you should contemplate about its TLD. Whether it will be a generic TLD such as .com, .info, .name, or a country code top-level domain name like .ca, or, is determined by the target visitors and on the intention of your portal, but also on your desire, so when you are looking for a registrar where you can register your domain name, make sure that you pick one with a vast variety of domain extensions. In this way, you can be certain that you will make the best pick and if you register a number of domain names for your family-oriented or business portal, they all will be in a single location, not flung across numerous separate domain name registration companies.

Registrants - The True Domain Owners

When you register a domain, you become the domain name Registrant, or its holder. You can designate a different person as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain if somebody else manages your web page, which will permit you to attend solely to topics concerning the ownership or certain payment issues.

Domain Registration Intervals: One to Ten Years

Most domains are registered for a term of 1 to 10 yrs, but certain particular TLDs can be registered for no less than two years, or for no more than five, for example. You can also transfer your domain between various domain registrars and again, different top-level domain names involve different procedures for that. Prior to registering your domain name, it is advisable to get informed about what particular preconditions there are for the specific TLD that you've chosen. An appropriate illustration is the domain names chart at our website where you can check quite a large selection of available domain extensions and complete information in regard to the transfer and pre-registration preconditions entailed, 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 make certain to check the re-registration process requirements before your domain registration concludes. Given domains cannot be renewed after they expire, and for others you have one mo. after the expiration date to renew them. The common scenario is that when a domain runs out, it is either removed after a given period, or the domain name registrar obtains proprietorship of the domain name if you, the owner, have not exhibited any intention of renewing it. Hence you should repeatedly keep an eye on the expiration date of your domains or you will jeopardize forfeiting them. For some TLDs such as .com or .net, you have 30 days after the expiration date, while with others, like .eu - you lose the domain the moment it runs out and you have to wait 30 to 45 days before you can re-register it.
