What are Domain Names

One of the essentials you demand in order to kick off a site is a domain name. This is the Internet address your website visitors will type in their browsers to see your web page and it is among the features they will distinguish you by. That's why you should go for a domain name that is appropriate and explanatory, but it should also be simple to recollect.

Registries - The Actual Domain Name Distributors

Each domain name extension, or TLD (Top-Level Domain), is supervised by a Registry. This is the top-level institution that controls all domain name registrations and designates the stipulations for each particular Top-Level Domain. A number of domain Registrars operate under the Registry. These are certified suppliers that offer the actual domain name registration service, take care of any further registration requirements and charge the end customers.

Generic or ccTLDs?

When selecting a domain name, you should think about its Top-Level Domain. Whether it will be a generic TLD like .com, .net, .org, or a country code top-level domain name like .eu, .se or, depends on the target audience and on the function of your website, but also on your desire, so when you are looking for a domain name registrar where you can register your domain name, make certain that you choose one with a great assortment of domain extensions. Thus, you can rest assured that you will make the very best selection and if you register a number of domain names for your family-oriented or business web page, they all will be in one location, not scattered among numerous different domain name registrars.

Registrants - The Authentic Domain Name Holders

When you register a domain name, you become the domain Registrant, or its owner. You can designate another person as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain name if someone else manages your web page, which will allow you to attend solely to subjects concerning the proprietorship or some payment questions.

Domain Name Registration Intervals: 1 to 10 Yrs

The majority of domain names are registered for a term of one to ten yrs, but some specific top-level domain names can be registered for no less than 2 yrs, or for no more than five, for instance. You can also transfer your domain between separate registrars and again, different top-level domain names have different preconditions for that. Prior to registering your domain name, it is worthwhile to get to know what given preconditions there are for the concrete Top-Level Domain that you've settled on. An applicable example is the domain names chart at our website where you can have a peek at quite an immense selection of offered domain name extensions and thorough info in relation to the transfer and pre-registration requirements entailed, as well as the registration period for some of the more peculiar TLDs.

Redemption Grace Periods (RGP): 30 to 45 Days

Always make sure to acquaint yourself with the re-registration process requirements before your domain name registration finishes. Given domains cannot be renewed after they expire, and for others you have one month after the expiration date to re-register them. The general scenario is that when a domain name runs out, it is either deleted after some time, or the domain registrar obtains ownership of the domain in case that you, the proprietor, have not exhibited any interest in renewing it. For that reason you should constantly keep track of the expiry date of your domains or you will risk losing them. For specific Top-Level Domains such as .com or .net, you have 30 days after the expiry date, whereas with others, such as .eu - you lose possession of the domain as soon as it runs out and you must wait thirty to forty five days before you can register it again.
