Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

The following is a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ's) about the domain name registration process and the new competitive registration environment. It is expected that this list will be updated frequently, so please check back often.

What is a domain name?

Domain names are the familiar, easy to remember names for computers on the Internet (such as dot-domain-information.com). They correspond to a series of numbers (called Internet Protocol numbers) that serve as routing addresses on the Internet. Domain names are used generally as a convenient way of locating information and reaching others on the Internet.

What does it mean to "register" a domain name?

The Internet Domain Name System (DNS) consists of a directory, organized hierarchically, of all the domain names and their corresponding computers registered to particular companies and persons using the Internet. When you register a domain name, it will be associated with the computer on the Internet you designate during the period the registration is in effect.

I already have a domain name, can I transfer it to Web Sites Solutions?

What is involved in registering a domain name in .com, .net or .org?

To register a domain name, you will be asked to provide various contact and technical information that makes up the registration. The Registrar will then keep records of the contact information and submit the technical information to a central directory known as the "Registry." This Registry provides other computers on the Internet the information necessary to send you e-mail or to find your web site. You will also be required to enter a registration contract with the Registrar, which sets forth the terms under which your registration is accepted and will be maintained.

How long until my domain name works?

Will my name and contact information be publicly available?

Yes. 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.

How long does a registration last? Can it be renewed?

You have the choice of 1, 2, 5, and 10 year terms for both initial and renewal registration terms. Near the end of your registration term we will contact you via e-mail and offer you registration choices.

When do I have to pay for my domain name?

Before your domain name becomes active, you must provide a credit card number. This requirement enhances the availability of domain names by preventing them from being tied up by persons not intending to pay for registration.
