Domains Defined

One of the requirements you need in order to create a site is a domain. This is the Internet address your website visitors will type in their web browsers to open your web page and it is amongst the things they will distinguish you by. That's why you should pick a domain that is relevant and descriptive, but it should also be simple to recall.

Registries - The Actual Domain Providers

Each domain extension, or TLD (top-level domain name), is controlled by a Registry. This is the top-level institution that handles all domain registrations and prescribes the requirements for each given Top-Level Domain. Different domain name Registrars operate under the Registry. These are approved firms that deliver the actual domain registration service, deal with any supplementary registration rules and charge the end users.

Generic or Country Code TLDs?

When choosing a domain, you should contemplate about its TLD. Whether it will be a generic TLD like .com, .mobi, .biz, or a country code Top-Level Domain like .eu, .fr or .co.nz, is dependent on the target audience and on the function of your online portal, but also on your wish, so when you are seeking a registrar where you can register your domain name, make certain that you choose one with a vast array of domain extensions. In this way, you can be confident that you will make the very best pick and if you register a bunch of domain names for your private or corporate online portal, they all will be in one place, not disseminated among multiple different domain name registrars.

Registrants - The Real Domain Holders

When you register a domain, you become the domain name Registrant, or its possessor. You can mention another person as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain name if someone else looks after your web portal, which will permit you to deal just with topics regarding the ownership or some payment questions.

Domain Registration Terms: 1 to 10 Years

Most domains are registered for a term of 1 to 10 yrs, but certain given TLDs can be registered for no less than 2 yrs, or for no more than 5, for example. You can also transfer your domain name between separate registrars and once again, different TLDs involve different criteria for that. Before you register your domain, it is worthwhile to get informed about what particular preconditions there are for the given Top-Level Domain that you've opted for. A proper example is the domain names table at our website where you can examine quite a big list of offered domain name extensions and vital info regarding the transfer and pre-registration stipulations involved, as well as the registration term for some of the more characteristic top-level domain names.

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

Always be sure to get to know the renewal process details before your domain registration concludes. Particular domains cannot be re-registered after they expire, and for others you have one month after the expiry date to renew them. The general practice is that when a domain expires, it is either deleted after a specific time, or the domain name registrar obtains proprietorship of the domain name if you, the holder, have not demonstrated any interest in renewing it. That's why you should constantly keep track of the expiry date of your domains or you will jeopardize losing them. For particular Top-Level Domains like .com or .net, you have thirty days after the expiration date, whereas with others, like .eu - you forfeit possession of the domain name as soon as it runs out and you must wait 30 to 45 days before you can re-register it.
