    1. Can I have a domain name longer than 26 characters?


    2. I registered my domain name, now what?

      Well it a very basic question. The three main things for a company wish to be online are 1) Domain Name 2) Web space to host the site 3) The web site itself. Once you register a domain name you will need to find a webhosting company or internet service provider to host your website for you. Some good areas to start: your local ISP or choose one of the many free webhosting sites available like tripod.com, geocities.com etc. You may be one of those people who wish to only reserve their domain name for future use. In that case you need not find an ISP or hosting company.

      InterNIC (Network Information Center) is an independent agency set up to serve the Internet community.

Internic was the term originally used to describe the registry database.

    5. What is a domain name?

      Similar to how your house address indicates where you live in the world, a domain name represents your (web site's) "address" on the Internet. Those who do business over the Internet want their domain names (addresses) that are easy to remember and that are closely related to their company's trademark, so that it is easier for the customers to locate their web site.

      The actual domain name is a simplified, easier to read translation of an IP (Internet Protocol) address. The Internet is composed of a vast number of interconnected computers. Each of these computers is assigned a numeric value of the form XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX. This numeric value is called an IP address. If each computer on the Internet were identifiable only through its IP address, people would have a lot of difficulty when trying to locate each other and having to memorize each other's addresses. Domain names simplify IP addresses into an easy to remember combination of words and numbers.

    6. What is the difference between .com, .net, and .org domain names?

      The domain suffixes basically differentiate between the various types of organizations on the Internet. Generally, the following rules apply:

      .com -- businesses and commercial enterprises
      .net -- network-related organizations and enterprises
      .org -- charitable or non-profit organizations

      The domain suffix type itself has no bearing on accessibility on the Internet from a technical standpoint, but over time the .com domain type has become the most popular and recognizable on the Internet.

    7. What is the difference between the top-level and the second- level domain names?

      The top-level domain and the second level domain work together to form the Internet address. The second level domain usually indicates the name of the organization that the address belongs to (e.g. Microsoft), or the type of web site it is (e.g. .com). When the two are tied together, the address is formed: "microsoft.com". Any additions to this address would be simple and straightforward and are performed by Microsoft.

      For example, Microsoft has the sites www.microsoft.com and search.microsoft.com.

    10. Why should people register domain name(s)?

      Just like a company logo, brand name, your domain name too represents your business identity.Domain names are designed for people, IP addresses are designed for computers. If a company wants people to find their web site easily, they will need a domain name.

      Domain names are registered on a first-come first-served basis. The fact that someone may have incorporated under a name or even that they have filed a trademark application does not automatically permit them to use that name. All parties who have legitimate use for a name, share the same rights to a name.

      If a company conducts business over the Internet, or even if that company plans to do so in the future, they should register their domain name(s) now. Once a name is taken, it's gone.

    11. How much could a domain name be worth?

      Domain names can be worth thousands and thousands of dollars. The more practical and useful it is for others, the more it will be worth. Recently, business.com sold for $7.5 million and computer.com sold for $500,000.

      Domain names can be worth even more in non-monetary terms. Companies that have spent a great deal of time and money on establishing a corporate identity may find the value of their domain name immeasurable. The worth of a domain name is high, and there is no limit to just how high.

    12. What if my desired name is the same as a trademarked name?

      In quick and simple terms, if you've registered the name in good faith, its not a name belonging to an internationally known company, and you can show that you have a legitimate reason to use that name then you are likely to be able to keep that name.
      InterNIC does not screen domain names for registered trademarks or other rights. Since domain names are registered on a first come, first serve basis, it is wise to register Internet business and brand names as soon as possible.

    13. How can I protect my domain name against potential trademark disputes?

      One way to avoid trademark disputes would be to choose the right domain name and is similar to choosing the name of your company. You would not want a name that is similar to another company that people cannot distinguish between the two. For example, if your company is called Integrated Business Management, you would not want to resister a domain name of "IBM". This would be a sure fire way of inducing a trademark dispute!

    14. Once I have a domain name secured, how long will I own the domain for?

      Provided that there are no trademark disputes, and that the annual fees are maintained, your secured domain name will be yours indefinitely. As long as you wish to use it, it will be yours.
