Domain Name Registration

What is domain name and why I need it?

Your domain name is your unique address on the World Wide Web, for examples :

  • www.myname.com
  • www.mycompany.com
  • www.companyname.com
  • etc., etc..

Customers or friends are going to use your Web Site Address (domain name) to find you on the web. Having your own domain name will certainly pits your "Internet Identity" or "Internet Image" on a par with the world's largest corporations.

I already have my homepage address : (http://www.myISP.com/~name123). Why I need my domain name?

Having your own domain name means that you have your own office compartment or your own company building.

Although when you join a ISP, she will gve you 2 - 5 Mega space for your homepage and your homepage address will look like: http://www.myISP.com/~name123. The case is same as : There are 300 - 400 desks inside a big office of somebody name (myISP) and you are just renting one of the desk (~name123)to do your busines ! How can you tolerate with this?

We provide the rock bottom price for International Domain Name Registration (.com .net .org) - all at affordable prices.

How long will it take to register a new domain name?

It usually takes within a few hours in our normal office working hours to process new domain registration upon receipt full payment.

Once the interNIC announces that your new domain name has been registered or transferred, it will takes up to 24 hours before your new domain name come to active. Because all internet providers must update their name server (DNS tables) to reflect new web site locations. This is called domain propagation.

Why is my domain name still showing up as available after registration?

Domain registry databases can take between 24-48 hours to be updated so even though your domain has been registered it may still show up on WHOIS or "Check Domain" as being available.

I know that most companies register domains at a very high prices. How can you offer at such a low price? Is it the same quality?

All domains registration are registered and handled by interNIC. Therefore on matter where you register your domain, it is the same. The only difference is price.

Why we offer at such a low price? Because we want everyone can afford owning a domain name.

Can I register a domain name from you and join the web hosting from other company?

Sure. Actually there is no direct relationship between domain registration and web hosting. However, I know that some web hosting companies ask their clients to sign up both web hosting and domain registration at the same time. Because they wish to make a high profit from domain registration.
