Important Things to Know Before Registering a Domain Name

Many people who are new to the online world do not know where to begin and are often asked to register a domain first and quite rightfully so.

However, when asked about what and what not to do while registering a domain the most answer is that one must focus of choosing the best domain name for their business. This should reflect on your brand name and your area of business. Another thing that is often suggested is that the domain should be registered with a reliable web hosting provider which is correct. But there are many other factors that one should focus on when looking to register a domain name.

Here are some of the pointers to give you a better idea:

Registry Info

A registry is an organization where you are going to actually buy the domain name. There are many companies that sell domain names and this is what makes it essential to pick the right one. Firstly, you should know that the company you choose is reliable and has been in business for a long time so you do not face problems as new sellers are often vulnerable. Secondly, the company should be easily reachable and you should be able to talk to someone so that is you face any issue then it can be resolved quickly.

Additional Cost

Many newcomers are often under the impression that paying an upfront fee would make them the owner of the domain name for life which is not true. When you pay $5-$10 for any domain you can only register for a year or two depending upon your registration period. If you wish to keep the domain name for a longer period then you are supposed to renew it periodically to avoid redemption.

For a generic domain name the price would be normal but is it is top level domain then you may have to pay a higher fee and this would also differ for each domain registrar. So do your research first and then buy the domain name.

Terms of Services

There are many hidden terms and things written in the fine print which you may miss out on and it may cause trouble later. When you register a domain name you are required to provide your details which are visible in the WHOIS lookup of your domain and can be easily found by anyone. Usually, you can hide these details but there might be charges for this and you should ask the registrar about it beforehand so you private data can be protected.

When your data is available publicly your email can be used by spammers and advertisers to send you spam mails and sell your data to mail list provider.

So, these are a couple of things apart from finding the right domain name which you must take care of when registering your new business domain. Getting the best domain name is essential but one must not forget about other important things related to domain name registration which would cause issue later.

If you take care of these factors then you would be able to get the domain name you desire at affordable rates and would also be able to sustain it for as long as you wish to.

Want to register a domain and run your personal or business website online? The first step would be to register a domain, search your desired domain name from the available TLDs like .com, .net, .biz, .in, co.in, .info, .org etc. It’s a common business practice to register a domain for a longer period under your name or company name.

    A good domain name is the one that can be sold in much higher price. In the case of average domain, the price can be something much lesser. Domain name can be considered as name of the website or that of web address. It is this address that is on the website which is much similar with address that of the house or brand name.
