Domain registration is required to maintain a database of website names and their corresponding IP addresses, including the information of the person who owns the website. It also prevents websites having the same name. Websites which are linked to the ICANN?s (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) Domain Name Server (DNS) database, can easily provide information as to who owns which website.
People who do not wish their personal information, such as last name, residential address, or phone number to be seen, by all the people accessing the Internet desire anonymous domain registration. It also prevents Spam from being directed to individuals email addresses. Anonymous registration also avoids poaching of customers by competing registrars, who can check the WHOIS database and attempt to lure customers with better offers.
Have you ever thought about creating your own website, but didn’t really know where to start? Well, the first step on the path to creating your own website is registering your domain name. This means that you are basically paying money in order to have your site’s name in a dot com (.com .org .net .edu) format. If you are lucky, your domain name will not already be taken, and you will be able to register website’s name for a relatively low annual fee.
In the event that the name you want is taken, you have a few options. You could select a different suffix, such as.net, or.org, so long as these haven’t already been purchased as well. Another option would be to rework the name of your site or domain until you can find a domain that isn’t already taken. Lastly, if you’re willing to go all out, you can try to buy out an already registered domain name, but this is not recommended unless you have a lot of money to spare and the name is incredibly important to your overall brand.
