What are Domains

One of the basics you need so as to have a web page is a domain. This is the URL your web page visitors will type in their browsers to examine your online portal and it is among the features they will associate you with. This is why you should opt for a domain that is suitable and explanatory, but it should also be simple 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 organization that oversees all domain registrations and sets the requirements for a particular TLD. Different domain name Registrars act under the Registry. These are approved distributors that deliver the very domain registration service, are responsible for any further registration rules and bill the end customers.

Generic or Country Code TLDs?

When selecting a domain, you should meditate upon its TLD. Whether it will be a generic Top-Level Domain like .com, .info, .name, or a ccTLD such as .de, or, depends on the target visitors and on the intention of your online portal, but also on your choice, so when you are searching for a domain name registration company where you can register your domain name, make sure that you elect one with a big number of domain name extensions. Thus, you can be confident that you will make the best choice and if you register a bunch of domain names for your personal or corporate web portal, they all will be in one location, not disseminated among multiple different registrars.

Registrants - The Actual Domain Owners

When you register a domain, you become the domain name Registrant, or its possessor. You can indicate a different person as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain if somebody else is responsible for your website, which will permit you to deal only with topics regarding the proprietorship or given payment issues.

Domain Registration Periods: 1 to 10 Years

Most domains are registered for a period of one to ten yrs, but some specific top-level domain names can be registered for at least 2 years, or for no more than 5, for instance. You can also transfer your domain name between different registrars and again, different TLDs have different prerequisites for that. Before you register your domain name, it is good to inquire what specific preconditions there are for the given TLD that you've settled on. An adequate illustration is the domain names table at our website where you can have a glance at quite a big selection of available domain name extensions and essential info in regard to the transfer and pre-registration requirements associated, as well as the registration term for some of the more characteristic top-level domain names.

Redemption Grace Periods (RGP): 30 to 45 Days

Always make certain to view the re-registration procedure details before your domain registration expires. Given domain names cannot be renewed after they run out, and for others you have 1 mo. after the expiry date to register them again. The common practice is that when a domain runs out, it is either removed after a given time, or the domain registration company acquires proprietorship of the domain name if you, the possessor, have not exhibited any intention of renewing it. For this reason you should constantly check the expiry date of your domain names or you will risk forfeiting 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 the domain once it expires and you have to wait thirty to forty five days before you can register it again.
