Domain Names Defined

Among the requisites you need so as to start a web page is a domain name. This is the URL your website visitors will type in their browsers to access your site and it is one of the things they will identify you with. For this reason you should go for a domain name that is good and descriptive, but it should also be simple to remember.

Registries - The Actual Domain Name Suppliers

Each domain name extension, or TLD (Top-Level Domain), is managed by a Registry. This is the top-level organization that controls all domain name registrations and assigns the rules for each particular Top-Level Domain. Different domain name Registrars work under the Registry. These are accredited firms that provide the very domain name registration service, are responsible for any further registration stipulations and charge the end customers.

Generic or Country Code TLDs?

When picking a domain, you should ruminate about its Top-Level Domain. Whether it will be a generic TLD such as .com, .mobi, .biz, or a country code Top-Level Domain like .us, .se or .com.au, is determined by the target audience and on the intention of your website, but also on your liking, so when you are searching for a domain registration company where you can register your domain name, make sure that you settle on one with a vast selection of domain name extensions. Thus, you can be confident that you will make the best possible choice and if you register several domain names for your family-oriented or corporate web site, they all will be in a single location, not scattered among plenty of different domain registrars.

Registrants - The Actual Domain Name Possessors

When you register a domain name, you become the domain Registrant, or its possessor. You can specify another person as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain if somebody else manages your portal, which will allow you to attend only to facets regarding the proprietorship or some payment issues.

Domain Name Registration Intervals: 1 to 10 Yrs

Most domain names are registered for a period of 1 to 10 years, but some particular top-level domain names can be registered for no less than two years, or for no more than five, for instance. You can also transfer your domain between separate domain registrars and once again, different top-level domain names involve different requirements for that. Before you register your domain name, it is advisable to become aware of what specific criteria there are for the particular Top-Level Domain that you've settled on. A good illustration is the domain names table at our website where you can observe quite a huge assortment of supported domain extensions and important information in relation to the transfer and pre-registration prerequisites imposed, as well as the registration term for some of the more specific Top-Level Domains.

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

Always make sure to have a peek at the re-registration process requirements before your domain name registration concludes. Specific domain names cannot be renewed after they run out, and for others you have one month after the expiry date to re-register them. The general practice is that when a domain name runs out, it is either canceled after a given interval, or the domain registrar acquires ownership of the domain if you, the owner, have not demonstrated any interest in renewing it. That is the reason why you should always observe the expiration date of your domains or you will jeopardize forfeiting them. For certain TLDs like .com or .net, you have 30 days after the expiry date, whereas with others, like .eu - you lose the domain the moment it runs out and you must wait thirty to forty five days before you can re-register it.
