What is Domain Name Registration

Domain name registration is the act of reserving a name on the Internet for a certain period, usually one year. It is important to know that this domain will remain yours for as long as you renew it and there is no way to purchase a domain name forever. Domain name registration is necessary for a web site, an email or another web service. However you don’t always have to register a new domain name. Many companies allow you to use subdomains from their domain names for a website or you can have an email with their primary domain (ex. yahoo.com, gmail.com). The most important thing about domain name registration is that having your own domain name gives you personality and recognized identity. Once a domain name is registered, the information about its owner is publicly available. The price to register a domain name varies greatly on its extension. For example, the most common .com is one of the most affordable options, while country-specific and generic domain name extensions can be multiple times more expensive. For detailed information about domain name prices, please visit our Domain Pricing page or contact our Sales/Support Team via ticket or chat.
