One of the requirements you need so as to run a website is a domain name. This is the URL your web page visitors will type in their web browsers to open your online portal and it is one of the things they will associate you with. That's why you should go for a domain name that is appropriate and explanatory, but it should also be simple to recollect.
Registries - The Real Domain Name Providers
Each domain name extension, or TLD (top-level domain name), is operated by a Registry. This is the top-level institution that handles all domain name registrations and imposes the requirements for each specific top-level domain name. Different domain name Registrars act under the Registry. These are certified corporations that provide the concrete domain name registration service, take care of any additional registration rules and charge the end customers.
Generic or ccTLDs?
When picking a domain name, you should think about its Top-Level Domain. Whether it will be a generic TLD such as .com, .info, .org, or a country code TLD like .us, .co.uk or .com.au, depends on the target audience and on the function of your web portal, but also on your desire, so when you are seeking a company where you can register your domain name, make sure that you discover one with a large variety of domain name extensions. In this way, you can be certain that you will make the best selection and if you register a number of domain names for your private or corporate site, they all will be in a single location, not flung across several different registrars.
Registrants - The Legitimate Domain Name Proprietors
When you register a domain name, you become the domain name Registrant, or its proprietor. You can indicate a different individual as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain name if somebody else administers your web portal, which will permit you to deal exclusively with things concerning the ownership or specific payment issues.
Domain Name Registration Intervals: 1 to 10 Years
Most domain names are registered for a term of one to ten yrs, but certain given Top-Level Domains can be registered for no less than two years, or for no more than five, for example. You can also transfer your domain name between separate domain name registrars and again, different TLDs involve different criteria for that. Prior to registering your domain, it is worthwhile to study what particular stipulations there are for the specific Top-Level Domain that you've chosen. A relevant illustration is the domain names table at our website where you can examine quite a huge list of supported domain extensions and extensive information as to the transfer and pre-registration preconditions imposed, as well as the registration term for some of the more characteristic Top-Level Domains.
Redemption Grace Periods (RGP): 30 to 45 Days
Always be certain to take a glimpse at the renewal procedure details before your domain name registration ceases. Particular domain names cannot be registered again after they expire, and for others you have one mo. after the expiry date to renew them. The general rule is that when a domain name runs out, it is either canceled after a specific period, or the domain registrar acquires ownership of the domain on condition that you, the holder, have not shown any intention of re-registering it. That is the reason why you should always keep an eye on the expiry date of your domain names or you will risk forfeiting them. For specific top-level domain names like .com or .net, you have 30 days after the expiration date, whereas with others, such as .eu - you lose possession of the domain once it runs out and you must wait thirty to forty five days before you can register it again.
