INTRO TO DOMAINS
If you haven't purchased a domain name before, it's really not
too difficult. There are two options acquisition from a portfolio
reseller like Deal Names (where finer names are typically available,
but at higher prices) or buy domain names directly from a domain registrar
(where a domain purchase is typically around $12, but where very few
good names are available).
second stage of the process is annual renewal, typically around $12
per year (for a ".com"). Once you acquire a domain, you
must renew it annually for as long as you wish to retain it. While
you are always hearing about people buying domain names, it would
be more accurate to call it "leasing domain names" because
if you don't pay your annual fee, the name automatically reverts to
the general domain pool after a "grace" period.
you find the domain you want directly at a registrar (via their search
fields) buy it and simply pay the renewal fee each year. The original
name "purchase" should include the first year of ownership
TIP: If you find an available domain you like at a registrar (ie if
you perform a search for it) buy it promptly. There are people who track
registry searches who buy good unpurchased names that seekers have hesitated
to acquire immediately.
the other hand, if you acquire a domain on the aftermarket at a reseller
site like Deal Names, you will also need to open a registrar
account so that the domain can be transferred from our registrar to
yours, so that you in turn can hold it and renew it into the future
for as long as you wish.
registrars provide full information about buying and renewing domain
names. All our domains are registered with either GoDaddy® or Moniker®.
We recommend both of these registrars. For the simplest and fastest
acquisition process, open an account with one of these registrars so
that Deal Names can quickly "push" your new domain into
your own account.
NOTE: While you can acquire a domain in just minutes, the complete transfer
process may take around seven days to complete. (But if urgent, you
can start using the name in around 24 hours during the transfer period
by contacting Deal Names. This can be done for free by "pointing"
the domain in question at your website in advance).
There are two aspects to operating a website. First, you create a website
and upload it to a server, typically maintained by a web hosting company.
Second, you "point" your domain at that server. So there is
a kind of partnership between your domain registrar and your web host.
You control it all via two accounts, your registrar account and your
web host account.
servers require that a domain points to it's two required IP (Internet
Protocol) addresses for it to function. These are generally comprised
of names something like "NS1.HOSTNAMEPARKING.COM" and "NS2.HOSTNAMEPARKING.COM".
(NS means nameserver).
host company provides info on what two IP addresses they need
you to input inside your domain's registrar account. (It can take more
than 24 hours for new IP addresses to take effect.)
registrar provides info on how to do this. With Godaddy, for
example, go to your Domain Manager page, select your domain name, then
on the button that says "Name servers". Then, you get a pair
of fields where you type in the two IP addresses as mentioned above.
(There are usually
more than two fields, but only two are compulsory.)
NOTE: Most registrars give you the option of "locking" your
domain. Always keep it locked. You can simply temporarily unlock it
whenever you want to change something like it's name server pointing
etc. Locking your domain makes it almost impossible to steal or tamper
A TYPICAL WEBSITE SUMMARY
Register a domain and keep it in your password protected account at
a registrar. Only you need know this password. Your web design company
and/or web hosting company do not need to know your password. Remember
to renew your domain(s) annually.
Find a web design company. They work in association with a host company
(or are also one themselves). They build you a website and place it
on a password protected server. They tell you the two required IP addresses
your domain requires. Both you and your design company can share knowledge
of your host company account password. But only you need to know your
domain password at your registrar.
Find a web hosting company. (Your web design company may do this for
you, or act in this capacity themselves). Your web design company will
typically upload your site to the agreed web host, and typically manage
and update the site on your behalf into the future. Obtain from the
hosting company the two IP addresses that are required by the hosting
Input the IP addresses into your domain's account at your domain name
registrar as described above. (This way you don't have to let your host
or anyone else access your priceless and confidential domain account).
12-24 hours or so, internet traffic is directed to your website.
