If I sign up for a new domain name, do I own it and for how long?
By paying the domain registration fee, you license the rights to use the domain name throughout the world for a specific time - usually for a year or two. No matter whether you use it or where you host it you will own it for the registration period.


How many domains I can register?
As long as you pay for the domain names and use them according the terms of rules of the registrar there will be no problem for you to register as many domains as you need.


How long does it take to setup my domain name?
After ordering, we will update our internal DNS (domain name servers) within 24 hours. Updating the registrar's DNSes usually takes up to 48 hours. After that it is up to the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) around the world to update their DNS to recognize your domain name.

Why do I need a domain name?
All Domain Names are unique. Your domain name is your identity on the World Wide Web. For businesses and organizations, a domain name can help brand your products and services. For individuals and clubs, a domain can identify your affiliations, relationships, or can just be your online personality.


What is DNS and how does it work?
The domain name system (DNS) enables each machine connected on the Internet to be recognized by a domain name. Every computer on the Internet has a unique IP (Internet protocol) address which consists of a string of numbers. Since the IP addresses can be difficult to remember, the DNS allows a familiar string of letters (the 'domain name') to be used instead of the IP address. So instead of typing the IP address' arcane string of numbers you can type, for example, 'www.espn.com.'


How do I register top-level domains? (e.g. .com, .info, .net, .org, and .us)
The .com, .info, .net, .org, and .us TLDs are globally available and unrestricted. Traditionally, however, names in .net have been used by organizations involved in Internet infrastructure activities - typically ISPs (Internet Service Providers) - while .org is frequently used by non-commercial organizations. .biz is available to businesses only. Albeit unrestricted, usage of the .info TLD implies that the site content is of a primarily informative nature.


How do I register an international domain name? (e.g., co.uk, .fr, .nl, etc.)
We can only host your international domain name. We do not register international domain names. Each country has their own domain registry that either operates directly with the public or through resellers. You will need to find the particular international domain registry and follow their procedures.
