What are Domains

One of the elements you need in order to open a web site is a domain. This is the Internet address your visitors will write in their web browsers to get to your online portal and it is among the features they will associate you with. Therefore you should opt for a domain that is good and explanatory, but it should also be easy to recollect.

Registries - The Real Domain Providers

Each domain extension, or TLD (Top-Level Domain), is administered by a Registry. This is the top-level institution that governs all domain registrations and assigns the stipulations for a particular top-level domain name. Various domain Registrars work under the Registry. These are certified providers that supply the actual domain registration service, take care of any supplementary registration rules and bill the end customers.

Generic or Country Code Top-Level Domains?

When picking a domain, you should contemplate about its TLD. Whether it will be a generic TLD such as .com, .net, .biz, or a country code Top-Level Domain such as .de, .se or .jp, depends on the target visitors and on the goal of your web site, but also on your preference, so when you are searching for a domain name registrar where you can register your domain name, make sure that you find one with a great selection of domain name extensions. In this way, you can be certain that you will make the very best selection and if you register a number of domain names for your private or corporate website, they all will be in one single place, not disseminated across various individual companies.

Registrants - The Genuine Domain Holders

When you register a domain, you become the domain Registrant, or its holder. You can designate a different person as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain if someone else manages your website, which will permit you to attend just to facets regarding the ownership or some payment issues.

Domain Registration Intervals: One to Ten Years

Most domains are registered for a period of one to ten years, but certain specific Top-Level Domains can be registered for no less than two years, or for no more than five, for example. You can also transfer your domain name between different domain name registrars and again, different top-level domain names have different policies for that. Before you register your domain name, it is useful to inquire what particular stipulations there are for the concrete TLD that you've selected. A relevant example is the domain names chart at our website where you can notice quite an immense assortment of available domain extensions and essential information as to the transfer and pre-registration rules imposed, as well as the registration period for some of the more peculiar TLDs.

Redemption Grace Periods (RGP): Thirty to Forty Five Days

Always be sure to acquaint yourself with the renewal process details before your domain registration ceases. Certain domain names cannot be re-registered after they run out, and for others you have one mo. after the expiration date to re-register them. The general rule is that when a domain runs out, it is either deleted after a given interval, or the Registrar company acquires proprietorship of the domain name in case that you, the owner, have not exhibited any intention of re-registering it. Therefore you should repeatedly keep track of the expiration date of your domains or you will jeopardize losing them. For certain top-level domain names such as .com or .net, you have 30 days after the expiration date, while with others, such as .eu - you forfeit possession of the domain once it expires and you must wait 30 to 45 days before you can register it again.
