Domain Names Explained

One of the fundamentals you need in order to establish a web site is a domain. This is the address your website visitors will type in their browsers to view your site and it is amongst the features they will identify you with. For that reason you should select a domain that is suitable and explanatory, but it should also be easy to recall.

Registries - The Real Domain Distributors

Each domain extension, or TLD (top-level domain name), is handled by a Registry. This is the top-level institution that controls all domain registrations and specifies the stipulations for each particular top-level domain name. Different domain Registrars work under the Registry. These are accredited distributors that provide the very domain registration service, handle any additional registration stipulations and bill the end clients.

Generic or Country Code TLDs?

When choosing a domain, you should contemplate about its TLD. Whether it will be a generic top-level domain name like .com, .info, .name, or a ccTLD such as .ca, .es or .jp, is determined by the target visitors and on the intention of your online blog, but also on your desire, so when you are seeking a company where you can register your domain name, make certain that you settle on one with a vast selection of domain extensions. Thus, you can be positive that you will make the best possible pick and if you register several domain names for your personal or corporate web site, they all will be in one place, not dispersed across various separate domain name registrars.

Registrants - The Real Domain Owners

When you register a domain, you become the domain name Registrant, or its proprietor. You can list a different person as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain if someone else handles your portal, which will permit you to attend just to subjects concerning the ownership or particular payment issues.

Domain Registration Intervals: One to Ten Yrs

The majority of domains are registered for a term of 1 to 10 yrs, but some specific top-level domain names can be registered for no less than 2 yrs, or for no more than five, for example. You can also transfer your domain name between different registrars and again, different top-level domain names have different rules for that. Before you register your domain, it is worthwhile to become informed about what given stipulations there are for the given top-level domain name that you've decided on. A good example is the domain names table at our website where you can have a glance at quite a large collection of offered domain name extensions and comprehensive information in relation to the transfer and pre-registration stipulations associated, 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 be certain to examine the re-registration process requirements before your domain registration expires. Certain domains cannot be re-registered after they run out, and for others you have 1 month after the expiration date to renew them. The common scenario is that when a domain expires, it is either canceled after a given interval, or the registrar obtains ownership of the domain in case that you, the possessor, have not displayed any intention of re-registering it. That's why you should repeatedly keep an eye on the expiration date of your domains or you will risk losing them. For certain Top-Level Domains such as .com or .net, you have thirty days after the expiration date, whereas with others, such as .eu - you lose proprietorship of the domain the moment it expires and you have to wait 30 to 45 days before you can re-register it.
