Domain 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 Type that domain name in your browser address bar, and the worldwide system of name servers connects your computer 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.

What is a Premium Domain?

Premium Domains are highly desirable, privately owned domain names offered at a price higher than we normally charge for domain names. These domain names have an established Web presence and a solid traffic history, and are offered at prices commensurate with their value as Internet real estate.

For Premium Domains, you pay the higher price once. In future years the renewal rate is the usual low rate charged for any domain name with that TLD (the extension, such as .com).

How do I find out whether the domain name I’m interested in is available?

Log in. In the "Register A Domain" text box, type the domain name you want to register. Click "GO". The response shows whether the domain name you typed is available, and also shows alternatives and Premium Domains.

If none of the suggested domain names meet your needs, use the search box to check the availability of another domain name.

How do I search for a Premium Domain?

All of our tools for searching regular domain names return Premium Domains alongside the search results for normal domain names.

In addition, we offer a search tool that returns only Premium Domains. To search for Premium Domains, hover on "Domains" and then click "Premium Domains". In the "Enter a search term" box, type a domain name, and then click "Search". The results show available Premium Domains and their prices.

How do I register a domain name?

Log in and search for a domain name or a premium domain.

When you find a domain name you want that is available, select the check box next to it and click "Add to Cart".

Select any services you want to add to your domain name. 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 "Submit Order".

What is preconfiguration?

Preconfiguration is providing contact and organization information that some country 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.
