Moderately Priced Domain Registration and Hosting Services

Among the necessities you need in order to possess an online portal is a domain name. This is the address your website visitors will type in their browsers to explore your web site and it is amongst the things they will recognize you by. Therefore you should pick a domain name that is suitable and explanatory, but it should also be simple to recollect.

Registries - The Real Domain Name Distributors

Each domain extension, or TLD (top-level domain name), is administered by a Registry. This is the top-level institution that manages all domain name registrations and designates the rules for a specific top-level domain name. A number of domain Registrars function under the Registry. These are authorized companies that provide the very domain name registration service, deal with any additional registration requirements and bill the end customers.

Generic or Country Code TLDs?

When picking a domain, you should contemplate about its top-level domain name. Whether it will be a generic top-level domain name like .com, .net, .biz, or a country code top-level domain name such as .me, .es or, is dependent on the target visitors and on the goal of your web site, but also on your desire, so when you are searching for a domain registration company where you can register your domain, make sure that you select one with a great variety of domain extensions. Thus, you can be certain that you will make the best pick and if you register a number of domain names for your personal or company web site, they all will be in one place, not flung across numerous separate companies.

Registrants - The Genuine Domain Proprietors

When you register a domain name, you become the domain name Registrant, or its holder. You can designate a different person as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain name if someone else administers your website, which will permit you to attend only to things regarding the proprietorship or given payment issues.

Domain Registration Terms: One to Ten Yrs

The majority of domains are registered for a period of one to ten yrs, but certain given TLDs can be registered for no less than 2 yrs, or for no more than five, for instance. You can also transfer your domain name between various domain registrars and again, different top-level domain names have different criteria for that. Before you register your domain name, it is useful to get to know what specific criteria there are for the concrete TLD that you've opted for. An apt example is the domain registration table at NTC Hosting where you can have a peek at quite a vast list of offered domain extensions and extensive info regarding the transfer and pre-registration rules associated, as well as the registration period for some of the more specific Top-Level Domains.

Redemption Grace Periods (RGP): 30 to 45 Days

Always make sure to see the re-registration process requirements before your domain name registration runs out. Given domains cannot be renewed after they run out, and for others you have one month after the expiration date to re-register them. The common practice is that when a domain expires, it is either canceled after a certain period, or the domain registrar assumes ownership of the domain provided that you, the possessor, have not displayed any intention of re-registering it. That's why you should repeatedly check the expiration date of your domains or you will risk forfeiting them. For specific Top-Level Domains such as .com or .net, you have thirty days after the expiration date, whereas with others, such as .eu - you forfeit possession of the domain name as soon as it expires and you have to wait 30 to 45 days before you can re-register it.
