Secrets For Registering Domain Names

November 24, 2011 by  Filed under: Domain 

Purchasing domain names can be a great investment and have a big payout at the end. The hardest part is picking the right one. Once you’ve done that, you need to follow the rules and regulations associated with the domain business including registering the name. The name has to be registered once a year and only costs about ten dollars per name. If you forget to register the name, you’ve automatically lost it so it is really important to remember your annual deadline.

When you do register, make sure that you read the fine print at the bottom, if applicable. I know most of us when signing up for things don’t ever read the license agreements and just automatically click on the box agreeing to the terms and conditions, but doing that is not the wisest thing. You should always read the fine print on everything!

You may be surprised to find that the registrar will have guarantees that are ridiculous because the guarantees they promise are features that any registrar should have anyway such as a high code security, customer service, security holds, land rush charges, renewals, support if your domain name is stolen and property protection.

Always check the validity of the company you are choosing to register your domain name with. Become familiar with the website ICANN for all the rules and regulations of registering your domain name.

Finally, there are plenty of scams out there with people conveying that they own a registered name and will try to sell it to you even if they don’t own it. If you find this to be a problem, make sure to report it.
