Domain Names Explained

Amongst the requirements you demand so as to launch a site is a domain. This is the address your visitors will write in their browsers to access your site and it is one of the things they will identify you with. For this reason you should pick a domain that is suitable and explanatory, but it should also be easy to recollect.

Registries - The Actual Domain Providers

Each domain extension, or TLD (Top-Level Domain), is operated by a Registry. This is the top-level institution that manages all domain registrations and settles the requirements for each specific TLD. Different domain name Registrars operate under the Registry. These are approved corporations that provide the actual domain registration service, handle any extra registration rules and charge the end users.

Generic or Country Code Top-Level Domain Names?

When selecting a domain, you should think about its top-level domain name. Whether it will be a generic Top-Level Domain like .com, .net, .org, or a country code top-level domain name such as .me, .fr or, is determined by the target visitors and on the intention of your website, but also on your desire, so when you are looking for a domain name registration company where you can register your domain name, make certain that you elect one with a large collection of domain extensions. Thus, you can be confident that you will make the very best pick and if you register several domain names for your personal or business web portal, they all will be in one location, not flung across numerous separate domain name registration companies.

Registrants - The Legitimate Domain Holders

When you register a domain, you become the domain Registrant, or its owner. You can indicate a different person as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain if someone else handles your portal, which will permit you to deal only with subjects concerning the proprietorship or certain payment questions.

Domain Registration Intervals: 1 to 10 Yrs

Most domains are registered for a term of 1 to 10 years, but some specific TLDs can be registered for no less than 2 years, or for no more than 5, for instance. You can also transfer your domain between separate companies and again, different Top-Level Domains have different policies for that. Before you register your domain, it is advisable to get to know what given prerequisites there are for the concrete TLD that you've chosen. A pertinent illustration is the domain names chart at our website where you can perceive quite a broad collection of offered domain name extensions and extensive information as to the transfer and pre-registration rules entailed, as well as the registration term for some of the more peculiar TLDs.

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

Always be sure to take a peek at the renewal process details before your domain registration concludes. Specific domain names cannot be re-registered after they expire, and for others you have one month after the expiry date to renew them. The general rule is that when a domain runs out, it is either deleted after a specific time, or the domain name registration company assumes possession of the domain provided that you, the owner, have not indicated any interest in registering it again. For this reason you should repeatedly observe the expiry date of your domains or you will jeopardize losing them. For given TLDs such as .com or .net, you have thirty days after the expiration date, whereas with others, like .eu - you lose ownership of the domain name the moment it expires and you need to wait 30 to 45 days before you can register it again.
