A domain name is a unique address or identifier on the World Wide Web.
One easily recognizable example is google.com: 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 domain name renewal?
When you register a domain name, you gain exclusive rights to that domain name for a period of time but not forever. It's more like a lease than a purchase. In effect, renewing extends your lease on the domain name.
How do I register a domain name?
Log in or register and search for a domain name.
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".
Is there anything I can do to protect my domain names from hijacking?
