There are several types of domain names available in the market. If you are willing to pay more and need to get the access from all over the world, then “.com” is a domain that you can choose. “.org” is a domain this is preferred by non-profit organizations. It is to be also taken into account that some of the domain names have copyright issues. Taking domain names of brand products or vehicles may be illegal in some cases. In such cases, you will be notified by them either to delete the domain or to sell the domain to them. Use Google tools such as SEO (search engine optimization), Google Trends, and Google Keywords for content and you can increase the traffic to your website.
Once you have found that the domain name you want is indeed available for registration, the following steps are to be initiated. There is a list of things that you need to submit to the registrar. Registrars are organizations accredited by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) and certified by the registry operators to sell domains:
– The domain name that you desire. Always remember that the domain name must be unique, short, and crisp so as to be memorable and can be remembered easily, catchy, and readable too.
– The name, phone number, address, email, and other information that is demanded.
After you made all your payments to the registrars, your registration is considered to be done and you can host your website. Once your registration is complete, you can start using the tools they provide and can upload the content on the website on the space they provided.
Domain renewal process is to be done from time to time else your domain shall be considered as expired. Then it will go to the common domain registration pool and can be taken by anyone who intends to register. If somebody takes your domain name in such a way, then you have no other option but to purchase the domain name from him/her. This can sometimes cost you millions. So, it is very important to look after the date at which the domain expires and to re-register the domain.
