More About Domain Names
You own all domain names you register or transfer through us
You are the owner (the Registrant) of all domain names that you register or transfer, not us. This means you control all aspects of the domain name including contact information, forwarding, name servers, etc. You can sell it, transfer it, renew it, let it expire... whatever you want.
FYI: the company which registers your domain name is known as the Registrar.
You don't need a website to register a domain name
You can "park" your new domain name with us, and we'll automatically provide you a free web site with hosting. Should you setup a more comprehensive web site, it takes less than two minutes to direct visitors to it using our online account control panel at Manage My Account.
A domain name is an internet address by which people reach your website
When someone types your domain name into a web browser, your website's pages will be shown. Behind the scenes, the domain name is actually pointing to a physical location - a computer server- that holds your website files. It knows where to find your website by using special DNS computers called "name servers".
You can use your domain name to direct visitors to your existing free website. You can use it to replace the long, complicated, hard to remember web address that your ISP, AOL, GeoCities, and others give you for free. Its done by using our Domain Forwarding Service, and best of all, its FREE. Domain Forwarding lets you use a domain name, even several domain names, to direct visitors to one website... even to specific pages within your website. When you register a domain name with us, we provide you the option of forwarding it to any existing website address - for free.
You can have email addresses which use your domain name (You@YourDomainName) even if you don't have a website
When you register your domain name with us, we provide you with a FREE email address AnyName@YourDomainName. Plus you get 100 FREE email forwarding addresses @YourDomainName.com. You can use the mailbox with email programs like Outlook or Outlook Express and also as Webmail where you use your internet browser to access your mailbox.
Even though we offer website hosting services,
you can host your website on the server of any hosting company
Just specify the hosting company's name servers when you register. Or if you don't have a web site or hosting company yet, add them at a later time using your online account control panel. Contact your hosting company if you don't remember the names of its domain servers (two are required). When registering, you'll enter these names in Step 4 where we ask for "DNS Data for your Hosting Account". To change it after registering, use the Domain Names section of Manage My Account and select "Set Nameservers".
Easily administer your domain name and email account at any time
You're in complete control 24/7. We provide you with a password protected, online account control panel called Manage My Account that you can use to setup email addresses, setup domain name forwarding to an existing web page, modify your contact information, change nameservers, renew domains, setup your etc.
You can avoid high renewal fees of your current domain names
Just transfer your existing domain to us now. You keep your website on the server where it is currently hosted; and you won't lose any fees already paid because we add a full year to the existing expiration date of all transferred domains. Because your existing registrar must approve the transfer, you MUST initiate the transfer at least 10 days before the expiration date.
You can have more than one domain name for the same website
It's called "URL forwarding", "domain forwarding" or simply "name forwarding". It lets you use a domain name, even several domain names, to direct visitors to one website. When you register a domain name with us, we provide you the option of forwarding it to an existing website address. You can also use domain forwarding to direct visitors to your free website that has a long, complicated, hard to remember web address -- you know, like the ones that your ISP, AOL, GeoCities, and others give you for free.
It may take up to 72 hours for your newly registered domain name to become accessible on the internet
The normal internet propagation time is about 72 hours; and therefore newly registered domain names will take up to 72 hours before they are accessible everywhere on the internet. This is the same regardless of who you register your domain name with.
It is impossible for someone else to register your domain name after you registered it with us.
We, and other bona fide domain name registrars, verify domain name availability through shared registration systems. Basically, these is a universal database of unavailable domain names. These systems prevent a domain name that has been successfully registered through us from being registered through another domain name registration service-- even if someone tries virtually immediately after you've completed registering it.
Your recently registered domain name may still appear to be available when you go to another domain name registration site and perform a WhoIs search
If you check your domain name availability on our web site after you have completed our registration process, your WhoIs, domain name and contact information is typically generated and available online immediately. However, your recently registered domain name may still appear to be available when you go to another domain name registration site and perform a WhoIs search. This usually is an indication that either you are checking prior to the normal 72 hour internet propagation time, or that the registration web site you are visiting is not displaying the WhoIs information of competing registrars. It does not mean that your domain name is still available for registration.
If you actually attempt to register your new domain name through a competing registrar's site, you will receive a message stating, "this domain is not available" or "this name is reserved". This is because the shared registration systems have an entry on file for your newly registered domain name; thereby indicating that the domain name is already registered and preventing duplication.
Here's how to change the email address and/or contact information for your domain name
We provide you with an online Account Control Panel by which you can administrate virtually all aspects of your domain name at any time after the registration or transfer is completed. Just click on the Manage My Account button/link to access it. You'll have to login using the User Name and Password that you established when you first registered or transferred your domain name. With your Control Panel, you can edit your contact information, email addresses, domain name servers (DNS Servers) and much more.
Be sure that the email address for your account with us is valid and up to date.
Certain changes and/or verification of changes to your account typically involve sending an email message to you. Go to The Customer Information section of Manage My Account and click on the Account Security Information link. Also keep your email address up to date in the Contacts section for each domain name you have registered with us.
Changes you make to your domain name will not appear instantly on the internet.
If you use Manage My Account to make changes to your domain name information, they will not show up instantly. It typically requires the standard internet propagation time. Changes to IP addresses and domain forwarding typically take 24-48 hours to take effect. Domain Name Server (DNS) changes may take up to 72 hours.
