Domain Name Registration

What is a domain name?

A domain name is a unique address or identifier on the World Wide Web. One easily recognizable example is google.com: Type that domain name in your browser address bar, and the worldwide system of name servers connects you to the content of the Google web site.

Domain names are sometimes referred to as the real estate of the World Wide Web. A domain name gives you exclusive rights to a unique parcel on the Internet landscape.

How do I register a domain name?

Log in. In the “Register a Domain” text box, type the domain name you want to register. Click “GO”.

If none of the suggested domain names meet your needs, use the “Give it another go” box to check the availability of another domain name.

Select the check boxes for the domain names you want to register and click “Add to Cart”.

Select or clear check boxes for extra services and click “Add Checked Services”. Double-check the contents of the shopping cart to make sure it contains the items you want to purchase, then click “Checkout Now”. Select the “Terms and Conditions” check box and click “Purchase Items”.

What is preconfiguration?

Preconfiguration is providing contact and organization information that some country code registries require.

Preconfiguration information is often used by registries that have “presence requirements”—requirements that the registrant and/or other contacts live or have documented organizations in the country.

How do I register a domain name that requires preconfiguration?

Log in. In the “Register a Domain” text box, type the domain name you want to register. Click “GO”. Select the check box for the domain name you want and click “Add to Cart”. Select any extra services you want and click “Add Checked Services”. In the row of the domain name that requires preconfiguration, click “preconfigure”. Fill in the form and click “Save My Settings”. Double-check the contents of the cart and then click “Checkout Now”. Select the “Terms and Conditions” check box and click “Purchase Items”.

How do I register a list of domain names?

If you already have a list of domain names you want to purchase, and they don’t require preconfiguration, you can use our bulk registration process.

To register a list of domain names, log in. In the “Manage My Domains” section, click “Bulk Register”. In the “Domains to Register” text box, type in the domain names you want to register. Complete the rest of the form and click “Add To Cart”. Add or remove any desired services and click “Checkout Now”. Select the “Terms and Conditions” check box and click “Purchase Items”.

I want to register all of my domains for 5 years at a time. How do I do this?

After you log in, hover on “My Account” and click “Account Settings”. On the “General Settings” tab find the “Domains Purchase Options” section. Choose your preference in the “Default Period” dropdown menu and click “Save Changes”.

This will apply to all domains that are registered, hosted, or renewed in your account. We cannot provide a refund for extra years purchased by mistake.

I have six names in my shopping cart awaiting checkout, but there is one name I do not want. Can I delete just that one, or do I have to delete all of them and start over?

You can delete just one name. In the row of the item you don’t want, click “remove”.

What if I change my mind, or spell a name wrong. Can I get my money back?

No, all sales are final. Once a domain is registered, the registry will not refund purchases.

Is there anything I can do to protect my domain names from hijacking?

Yes. We offer Registrar-Lock, which prevents your domain names from being transferred without your permission.

To set Registrar-Lock for all domains you register, log in and click “My Account”. On the “Quick Links” tab, click “General Settings”. In the “Domain Purchase Options” section, select the “Registrar-Lock” check box and click “Save Changes”.

To set Registrar-Lock for a domain name you’ve already registered, log in and click “Registered Domains”. Click the domain name you want to protect. In the “General Settings” row click “edit”. In the “Registrar-Lock” row select “Enable” and then click “Save Changes”.

Is there anything I can do to protect my domain names from expiring?

Yes. We offer Auto Renew, which renews domain names before they expire. You can set Auto Renew at an account-wide level or for individual domain names.

To set Auto Renew for all domains you register, log in and click “My Account”. On the “Quick Links” tab, click “General Settings”. In the “Auto Renew Options” section, select the “Domains” check box and click “Save Changes”.

To set Auto Renew for a domain name you have already registered, log in and click “Registered Domains”. Click the domain name you want to protect. In the “General Settings” row click “edit”. In the “Auto Renew” row select “Enable” and then click “Save Changes”.
