What are Domain Names
One of the necessities you need in order to build a website is a domain name. This is the web address your website visitors will write in their browsers to explore your web portal and it is among the things they will associate you with. That is the reason why you should choose a domain name that is relevant and explanatory, but it should also be simple to remember.
Registries - The Real Domain Name Distributors
Each domain name extension, or TLD (Top-Level Domain), is supervised by a Registry. This is the top-level institution that manages all domain name registrations and defines the requirements for a given top-level domain name. A number of domain Registrars function under the Registry. These are certified suppliers that furnish the actual domain name registration service, take care of any further registration requirements and bill the end customers.
Generic or ccTLDs?
When selecting a domain name, you should ponder on its Top-Level Domain. Whether it will be a generic Top-Level Domain like .com, .mobi, .name, or a country code TLD like .us, .se or .jp, is dependent on the target viewers and on the goal of your web site, but also on your choice, so when you are searching for a domain name registrar where you can register your domain name, make certain that you pick one with an enormous collection of domain name extensions. Thus, you can rest assured that you will make the best possible selection and if you register a couple of domain names for your personal or business web portal, they all will be in a single place, not flung across many separate domain name registrars.
Registrants - The Legitimate Domain Name Possessors
When you register a domain name, you become the domain name Registrant, or its possessor. You can specify a different person as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain name if someone else takes care of your site, which will allow you to attend only to matters regarding the proprietorship or given payment matters.
Domain Name Registration Terms: 1 to 10 Years
The majority of domain names are registered for a period of one to ten years, but some given TLDs can be registered for at least 2 yrs, or for no more than 5, for example. You can also transfer your domain name between different registrars and again, different TLDs have different criteria for that. Prior to registering your domain, it is advisable to inquire what particular stipulations there are for the given TLD that you've decided on. An adequate example is the domain names chart at our website where you can take a glance at quite an immense collection of offered domain name extensions and extensive information about the transfer and pre-registration preconditions imposed, as well as the registration period for some of the more characteristic Top-Level Domains.
Redemption Grace Periods (RGP): Thirty to Forty Five Days
Always make sure to get informed about the re-registration process details before your domain name registration lapses. Specific domain names cannot be renewed after they run out, and for others you have 1 month after the expiration date to re-register them. The general scenario is that when a domain name runs out, it is either deleted after a certain period, or the domain name registration company acquires possession of the domain name if you, the possessor, have not displayed any interest in renewing it. This is the reason why you should constantly check the expiry date of your domains or you will jeopardize forfeiting them. For specific Top-Level Domains such as .com or .net, you have thirty days after the expiration date, while with others, like .eu - you forfeit possession of the domain as soon as it expires and you have to wait thirty to forty five days before you can re-register it.
