Domains Explained

One of the requirements you need in order to establish a website is a domain. This is the web address your visitors will write in their browsers to get to your online portal and it is among the features they will distinguish you by. That is the reason why you should opt for a domain that is relevant and descriptive, but it should also be easy to remember.

Registries - The Real Domain Suppliers

Each domain extension, or TLD (top-level domain name), is administered by a Registry. This is the top-level organization that controls all domain registrations and determines the criteria for a given Top-Level Domain. A number of domain Registrars function under the Registry. These are certified companies that furnish the actual domain registration service, take care of any further registration stipulations and bill the end customers.

Generic or Country Code Top-Level Domains?

When selecting a domain, you should consider its Top-Level Domain. Whether it will be a generic Top-Level Domain like .com, .net, .name, or a country code top-level domain name such as .me, or, depends on the target viewers and on the purpose of your website, but also on your choice, so when you are looking for a domain registration company where you can register your domain name, make sure that you settle on one with an extensive selection of domain name extensions. In this way, you can be positive that you will make the best pick and if you register a number of domain names for your family-oriented or company site, they all will be in one place, not scattered among lots of different domain name registrars.

Registrants - The Authentic Domain Holders

When you register a domain, you become the domain Registrant, or its holder. You can mention a different person as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain if somebody else looks after your web site, which will permit you to attend just to aspects concerning the ownership or certain payment matters.

Domain Registration Periods: One to Ten Years

The majority of domains are registered for a term of 1 to 10 years, but some particular TLDs can be registered for no less than two years, or for no more than five, for example. You can also transfer your domain between various companies and again, different Top-Level Domains involve different rules for that. Before you register your domain, it is useful to become familiar with what specific stipulations there are for the concrete TLD that you've elected. A proper illustration is the domain names table at our website where you can have a glance at quite an extensive collection of supported domain extensions and comprehensive info with regard to the transfer and pre-registration criteria imposed, as well as the registration period for some of the more specific TLDs.

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

Always be certain to have a glance at the renewal process requirements before your domain registration finishes. Certain domains cannot be registered again after they expire, and for others you have 1 month after the expiry date to register them again. The general practice is that when a domain runs out, it is either terminated after a specific time, or the registrar takes over ownership of the domain name provided that you, the proprietor, have not displayed any intention of registering it again. That's why you should always check the expiry date of your domain names or you will jeopardize losing them. For some TLDs like .com or .net, you have 30 days after the expiration date, while with others, like .eu - you forfeit proprietorship of the domain the moment it runs out and you must wait 30 to 45 days before you can register it again.
