We crafted this FAQ page to answer many of the frequently asked questions we were asked along the way.
The Domain Name System (DNS) helps users to find their way around the Internet. Every computer on the Internet has a unique address - just like a telephone number - which is a rather complicated string of numbers. It is called its "IP address" (IP stands for "Internet Protocol"). IP Addresses are hard to remember. The DNS makes using the Internet easier by allowing a familiar string of letters (the "domain name") to be used instead of the arcane IP address. So instead of typing 188.8.131.52, you can type www.domainname.extension. It is a "mnemonic" device that makes addresses easier to remember.
No! There is no limit on number of domains a person can own. You can register as many domains as you can. For this, you can use our Bulk Domain Registration Tool.
There are 2 free email accounts provided with every domain you register.
Information about who is responsible for domain names is publicly available to allow rapid resolution of technical problems and to permit enforcement of consumer protection, trademark, and other laws. The registrar will make this information available to the public on a "Whois" site. It is however possible to register a domain in the name of a third party, as long as they agree to accept responsibility.
Each registrar has the flexibility to offer initial and renewal registrations in one-year increments, with a total registration period limit of ten years.
The .com, .info, .name, .net, and .org TLDs are open and unrestricted. Traditionally, however, names in .net have been used by organizations involved in Internet infrastructure activities and .org is frequently used by noncommercial organizations. .biz is reserved for use by businesses. .com is reservedfor the commercial purpose. .name is dedicated exclusively to individuals' personal names.
You can find the WHOIS information related to any domain name on http://www.whois.com/.
