Registering domains related to your big idea or business name keeps others from using those names to pull traffic away from your website.
With a domain name, you can send customers, friends and prospects wherever you want – whether that’s a website, blog, social page or storefront.
Your domain gives you an exclusive piece of digital real estate that cannot be used by anyone else as long as it’s registered to you.
The extension is the part at the end of the domain name – .net, .biz, .org or .com, for example.
It could be your business name or your specialty.
We’ll tell you if that particular domain is available and show others you may like better.
You are now the proud owner of your very own domain. As long as it’s registered to you, no one else may use it.
There are at least two parts to every domain, the Second-Level Domain (SLD), and the Top-Level Domain (TLD). With new domain extensions, you can express your brand or story using both of these, on either side of the dot.
Registration: When you “purchase” a domain name, what you are actually doing is paying a fee to register it for some set period of time. That domain is yours to use in any of the ways we’ve outlined above until you stop paying the renewal fee.Renewal: To hold onto your domain, you must periodically renew it by paying a renewal fee. You can register a domain for anywhere between 1 and 10 years, then set it to renew automatically, or have us contact you when the expiration date is coming up. If you choose not to renew the domain, it eventually becomes available to the public again in the process outlined below: Hosting: Just registering a domain doesn’t put you on the Internet; you need the domain to point to something. If you want it to point to a website you build yourself, we offer a helpful hosting service so that your graphics, text, videos, and anything else you want on your site has a place to “live.” Having your domain and hosting service all in one place is convenient and cuts through the hassle of managing many different accounts all for the same website.
Yes. Many people register multiple domain names and point each to a different part of their site. This makes calls to action to different parts of a website easy and memorable. With so many new domain extensions, you can keep your brand in the second-level domain, while changing the top-level domain to something like .SOCIAL or .VIDEO. The possibilities are almost endless.
Before you register your name, you might want to conduct a quick Trademark Search to see if a business in the same category as your own has trademarked your name or something similar to it. If so, you may want to choose a different name; trademark holders have several avenues to claim a domain name from you if it falls within their mark.
