We can assist you with Domain Name Registration to get your Internet identity established. Registration fees apply and vary depending upon the type of domain. Domains such as .com, .org, .net and .ca, as well as the many newer types of domains are now available.
A Domain Name is the “address” of your website. It will usually look something like “www.yourcompany.com”. Domain Names are purchased and registered through a domain name registrar. Since no two domain names can be identical, registering a domain name reserves you the right to its exclusive use. Domain Name registration must be renewed annually via the registrar, or else the Domain Name becomes available for someone else to purchase.
Choosing a Domain Name
Purchasing a Domain Name helps to secure your Internet identity, by reserving a name that relates to your company. When choosing a Domain Name, try to pick something that is memorable, descriptive of your endeavour and the shorter the better. You may select a Domain Name in the format of www.yourcompanyname.com or www.your-company-name.com, and choose one of several available postfixes, such as .com, .ca, .org, .net, etc.
You already own a Domain Name
If you already own a Domain Name, it is currently administered under some registrar. If you’d like, we can transfer the domain over to our registrar. By doing so, we would be able to:
- look after your domain configuration on your behalf (this is what we mean by “administration”)
- look after the annual renewal fees
Transferring your domain is optional. If you choose not to transfer the domain to us, then we can help you configure your domain registry, and make sure it is pointing to your new website. You will need to look after the domain management yourself.
