Domains Explained

Amongst the basics you demand in order to have a web site is a domain. This is the address your website visitors will write in their web browsers to see your web site and it is amongst the features they will associate you with. For this reason you should go for a domain that is good and descriptive, but it should also be simple to recollect.

Registries - The Real Domain Providers

Each domain extension, or TLD (top-level domain name), is handled by a Registry. This is the top-level organization that controls all domain registrations and defines the stipulations for a specific TLD. A variety of domain Registrars operate under the Registry. These are authorized firms that supply the actual domain registration service, deal with any further registration stipulations and charge the end customers.

Generic or Country Code Top-Level Domain Names?

When selecting a domain name, you should consider its top-level domain name. Whether it will be a generic Top-Level Domain such as .com, .net, .org, or a country code TLD such as .me, .se or, depends on the target audience and on the goal of your web site, but also on your preference, so when you are looking for a domain name registrar where you can register your domain name, make certain that you select one with a big assortment of domain extensions. Thus, you can be positive that you will make the very best choice and if you register a couple of domain names for your family-oriented or corporate portal, they all will be in one location, not flung among many individual domain name registration companies.

Registrants - The Actual Domain Holders

When you register a domain, you become the domain Registrant, or its proprietor. You can mention a different individual as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain name if someone else takes charge of your web portal, which will permit you to attend exclusively to issues regarding the ownership or given payment questions.

Domain Registration Terms: One to Ten Yrs

The majority of domains are registered for a term of one to ten years, but some particular 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 separate companies and again, different Top-Level Domains have different rules for that. Before you register your domain name, it is useful to become acquainted with what particular preconditions there are for the specific Top-Level Domain that you've chosen. A suitable example is the domain names table at our website where you can have a glimpse at quite a vast selection of available domain extensions and detailed info with regard to the transfer and pre-registration prerequisites associated, as well as the registration term for some of the more specific top-level domain names.

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

Always make sure to take a glimpse at the renewal procedure requirements before your domain registration ends. Specific domain names cannot be renewed after they run out, and for others you have 1 mo. after the expiration date to register them again. The common scenario is that when a domain expires, it is either deleted after a certain time, or the registrar assumes proprietorship of the domain in case that you, the owner, have not displayed any intention of renewing it. For that reason you should repeatedly keep track of the expiration date of your domain names or you will risk forfeiting them. For given top-level domain names such as .com or .net, you have thirty days after the expiration date, whereas with others, such as .eu - you lose possession of the domain name the moment it expires and you must wait 30 to 45 days before you can re-register it.
