Get a Domain from NTC Hosting

Amongst the fundamentals you demand in order to kick off a web site is a domain. This is the web address your website visitors will write in their browsers to visit your web page and it is one of the features they will identify you with. That is the reason why you should pick a domain name that is good and descriptive, but it should also be easy to recall.

Registries - The Real Domain Caterers

Each domain extension, or TLD (top-level domain name), is operated by a Registry. This is the top-level institution that manages all domain name registrations and settles the stipulations for each particular top-level domain name. A number of domain Registrars work under the Registry. These are approved companies that supply the actual domain registration service, handle any additional registration stipulations and charge the end clients.

Generic or Country Code Top-Level Domain Names?

When choosing a domain name, you should contemplate about its TLD. Whether it will be a generic TLD like .com, .net, .biz, or a country code top-level domain name like .eu, .es or .com.au, is determined by the target visitors and on the purpose of your web site, but also on your choice, so when you are looking for a registrar where you can register your domain name, make certain that you discover one with an extensive choice of domain extensions. Thus, you can rest assured that you will make the best possible selection and if you register several domain names for your personal or business website, they all will be in one location, not scattered across numerous different domain registration companies.

Registrants - The Legitimate Domain Name Proprietors

When you register a domain, you become the domain Registrant, or its holder. You can specify another individual as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain name if somebody else administers your online portal, which will allow you to deal solely with facets regarding the ownership or some payment questions.

Domain Registration Terms: 1 to 10 Years

Most domains are registered for a term of one to ten years, but certain specific Top-Level Domains can be registered for at least two yrs, or for no more than 5, for instance. You can also transfer your domain between different domain name registrars and again, different top-level domain names have different preconditions for that. Before you register your domain name, it is commendable to explore what specific requirements there are for the specific TLD that you've settled on. An apt example is the domain registration chart at NTC Hosting where you can discern quite a big list of offered domain extensions and detailed information in regard to the transfer and pre-registration criteria involved, as well as the registration term for some of the more peculiar Top-Level Domains.

Redemption Grace Periods (RGP): 30 to 45 Days

Always make sure to become informed about the renewal process details before your domain registration concludes. Given domain names cannot be registered again after they run out, and for others you have one month after the expiration date to re-register them. The general practice is that when a domain name runs out, it is either terminated after a given period, or the domain name registrar takes over ownership of the domain name on condition that you, the holder, have not indicated any interest in renewing it. That's why you should constantly keep track of the expiry date of your domains or you will jeopardize losing them. For some TLDs such as .com or .net, you have thirty days after the expiration date, whereas with others, like .eu - you lose ownership of the domain name the moment it runs out and you have to wait thirty to forty five days before you can register it again.
