Register a Domain Name with NTC Hosting

One of the necessities you need in order to open a website is a domain name. This is the address your web site visitors will type in their web browsers to visit your web portal and it is one of the features they will associate you with. For that reason you should select a domain that is appropriate and explanatory, but it should also be easy to remember.

Registries - The Actual Domain Providers

Each domain extension, or TLD (Top-Level Domain), is handled by a Registry. This is the top-level institution that manages all domain registrations and defines the rules for each specific TLD. A number of domain Registrars act under the Registry. These are approved suppliers that supply the actual domain name registration service, handle any supplementary registration rules and bill the end customers.

Generic or Country Code Top-Level Domains?

When selecting a domain name, you should speculate upon its TLD. Whether it will be a generic Top-Level Domain like .com, .net, .org, or a country code top-level domain name like .de, .co.uk or .co.nz, depends on the target audience and on the intention of your online portal, but also on your choice, so when you are seeking a domain name registrar where you can register your domain name, make certain that you opt for one with a huge choice of domain name extensions. Thus, you can be certain that you will make the best choice and if you register several domains for your family-oriented or business web site, they all will be in one place, not dispersed among several separate domain name registration companies.

Registrants - The True Domain Proprietors

When you register a domain, you become the domain name Registrant, or its holder. You can designate a different individual as the Administrative or Technical Contact for the domain name if somebody else is responsible for your web site, which will allow you to attend only to facets concerning the ownership or some payment issues.

Domain Registration Intervals: 1 to 10 Years

Most domain names are registered for a term of 1 to 10 years, but certain specific top-level domain names can be registered for no less than two years, or for no more than 5, for instance. You can also transfer your domain name between various companies and once again, different TLDs involve different preconditions for that. Prior to registering your domain, it is commendable to become informed about what particular rules there are for the concrete top-level domain name that you've elected. A relevant example is the domain registration chart at NTC Hosting where you can take a glimpse at quite an immense assortment of offered domain extensions and important information concerning the transfer and pre-registration rules entailed, as well as the registration term for some of the more specific Top-Level Domains.

Redemption Grace Periods (RGP): 30 to 45 Days

Always be certain to have a gaze at the re-registration process details before your domain registration runs out. Specific domains cannot be registered again after they expire, and for others you have one month after the expiration date to re-register them. The general scenario is that when a domain expires, it is either removed after a given period, or the domain registrar assumes possession of the domain in case that you, the possessor, have not manifested any interest in renewing it. That's why you should repeatedly observe the expiry date of your domain names or you will jeopardize losing them. For particular TLDs such as .com or .net, you have 30 days after the expiry date, while with others, such as .eu - you forfeit proprietorship of the domain once it runs out and you have to wait thirty to forty five days before you can re-register it.
