Archived- Domain Name FAQs
Think of your postal address. Doesn't it include much more than just your name?
A domain registrar is a company or organization that has been accredited by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ( ) to register Generic Top-Level domains (gTLDs). These are domain names ending with standard extensions such as .com, .net, .org, or .info. Domain name registrars are responsible for maintaining your domain registration records and managing your domain renewals and other administrative details such as DNS (Domain Name System) records.
A suffix is the three-letter portion after the dot in a domain name. Examples of popular suffixes are .com, .net, etc.
We understand that it is frustrating when you don't get what you want. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the availability of a domain name. Many domain names may have been registered for personal or business purposes over the years. We suggest that you modify your request a little and try again. It helps! For example, if you were looking for the domain name thenameyouwant.com and the domain name is unavailable, you might want to try variations such as the1nameyouwant.com or thename-we-want.com.
