Domain Registration

Amongst the basics you demand in order to own a web portal is a domain. This is the URL your visitors will write in their web browsers to explore your website and it is one of the things they will identify you with. This is the reason why you should choose a domain that is appropriate and descriptive, but it should also be easy to recollect.

Registries - The Actual Domain Name Providers

Each domain name extension, or TLD (Top-Level Domain), is handled by a Registry. This is the top-level organization that oversees all domain registrations and defines the criteria for each specific Top-Level Domain. A number of domain name Registrars function under the Registry. These are authorized firms that deliver the concrete domain name registration service, take care of any additional registration requirements and bill the end users.

Generic or ccTLDs?

When choosing a domain, you should meditate upon its top-level domain name. Whether it will be a generic Top-Level Domain like .com, .net, .name, or a country code TLD like .eu, .es or .jp, depends on the target viewers and on the intention of your blog, but also on your wish, so when you are searching for a domain name registrar where you can register your domain name, make sure that you elect one with a vast collection of domain name extensions. Thus, you can rest assured that you will make the best pick and if you register a couple of domain names for your private or corporate online portal, they all will be in one single location, not disseminated among plenty of separate domain registration companies.

Registrants - The True Domain Holders

When you register a domain, you become the domain Registrant, or its proprietor. You can indicate another individual as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain name if somebody else administers your web portal, which will permit you to deal solely with facets concerning the proprietorship or some payment issues.

Domain Registration Periods: 1 to 10 Years

Most domains are registered for a period of 1 to 10 yrs, but some specific top-level domain names can be registered for no less than 2 years, or for no more than five, for instance. You can also transfer your domain name between different companies and once again, different top-level domain names involve different requirements for that. Prior to registering your domain name, it is wise to find what specific requirements there are for the given TLD that you've decided on. A suitable example is the domain name chart at 'Lonex Web Hosting' where you can spot quite an enormous collection of offered domain name extensions and complete info regarding the transfer and pre-registration rules imposed, as well as the registration term for some of the more peculiar top-level domain names.

Redemption Grace Periods (RGP): 30 to 45 Days

Always make sure to take a look at the re-registration process specifications before your domain registration runs out. Some domain names cannot be renewed after they expire, and for others you have 1 mo. after the expiry date to re-register them. The common rule is that when a domain expires, it is either canceled after a specific period, or the domain registration company assumes ownership of the domain name on condition that you, the holder, have not shown any interest in registering it again. Therefore you should always keep track of the expiry date of your domains or you will risk forfeiting them. For particular TLDs like .com or .net, you have thirty days after the expiry date, whereas with others, like .eu - you forfeit possession of the domain name the moment it runs out and you have to wait thirty to forty five days before you can re-register it.
