A domain name is essentially real estate on the internet. The temporary ownership of the real estate is provided by the registration of this domain name. Domain registrations enable the registrant to “build” on the property (for example, example.com) by providing services such as websites, email, and FTP for personal, business, or public use.
The domain registration only gives you rights to the domain name you buy for the duration of the domain registration, which is usually one to 10 years. You can use this registration to update the domain’s contact information, change the nameserver delegation, and add glue records.
A good domain name should either define your product or be the name of your company. Choose a domain name that is simple to enter and pronounce over the phone. The results of our domain checker will show you if your desired name is available in a number of Top Level Domains. Domain names can become available up to 48 hours after registering.
