Domain Name Registration FAQ

1. What is a domain name?

Adomain name is a name, such as microsoft.com, yahoo.com,or rdsindia.com, which uniquely identify your company,product, service, industry or interests. They can be used for web sites and personal email addresses (such as you@yourcompany.com).. The machines on theinternet only understand addresses in numerical form,for example 64.62.254.192, so a domain name is usedto make the address easier to understand. The above address might point to rdsindia.com where "rdsindia"is the name of the company, and "com" is the partof the global network on which the machine sits.

2. Why do I need to register a domain?

Yourdomain (Internet address) defines your company's identityon the Internet. If people are looking for your company on the Internet they will often start by typing inhttp://www.yourcompany.com. Your own domain also gives you a professional looking Web and email address.

3. What can a domain be used for?

Yourdomain (Internet address) defines your company's identityon the Internet. If people are looking for your company on the Internet they will often start by typing inhttp://www.yourcompany.com. Your own domain also gives you a professional looking Web and email address.

Even if you do not intend having your own company email address or Web site, it is wise to reserve your domain as soon as possible, because another companymay register your name before you do.

It may also be a good idea to set up a temporary Webpage giving contact information about your company for people who are looking for your company on the Internet. Some 90,000 Internet domains are registered each month globally.

4. If I register my domain name, do I then own it?

Onceyou register a domain name, you then become the owner of the name. No-one else will be able to registerit. You can sell it, move it and retain full controlover it.

5. What do all the different domains, like .com, .net, and .org, mean?

Theroot-domain defines what kind or organisation youare, so it is important to pick the right one to register.Most companies will try to register a .com domain

There are many types of global root domain:

".com" is the american "commercial" root-domain. Many people think this is the most desirable as it portraysa company as being international.

".edu" is the american education domain - this domainis not available for registration unless you are anamerican educational establishment.

".org" is the global root-domain for non-profit-making and charitable organisations.

".net" is the global root-domain usually used by companieswho provide internet based services, but can be registeredby all.

As well as these global root-domains, there are also regional root domains:

".in" for India as a whole, ".fr" for france, ".de"for Germany, and so on.

New global root domains have also been proposed, suchas .firm, .arts, .rec and .nom, but these are not yet available.

6. What domain name should I use?

Generally,a domain name should be chosen which reflects your company or your web site's content, although thisis simply to make the site address more memorableto visitors.

Most companies with a known brand name which is importantto their business will choose to register their company name with the appropriate root domain extension (.com,.org etc..).

Choosing the right root domain is a bit more difficult,and really depends on how you wish your company to be perceived. See the section on 'What do the differentdomains mean' to help with this.
