Basic Information of Domain Name

What is a domain name?

Domains are addresses of Web, your locations on Internet. They are shortcuts for communication and access of information. Register domain names to identify yourself and promote your business. The following are some examples of domain names that may seem familiar to you: yahoo.com, AOL.com.

Characters Within A Domain / Naming Conventions?

Domain names are alpha-numeric and may use a - (dash). The dash cannot be at the beginning or end of a domain name. Domain names may be up to 67 characters total(including the suffix).

What is an IP address?

Each computer on Internet has one or more than one numerical addresses to identify its location on Web. The numerical addresses are called IP. Here is an example of IP address: 210.77.145.16. However, numbers like this are hard for human memory and domain names are designed to relieve the memory burden.

Who is administrating the registration of domain names?

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is the non-profit corporation that was formed to assume responsibility for the IP address space allocation, protocol parameter assignment, domain name system management, and root server system management functions previously performed under U.S. Government contract by IANA and other entities. For more information please visit ICANN website: ICANN.

What is DNS (Domain Name Server)?

Domain Name Server converts domain names into IP addresses which computers can recognize. For example, if someone wants to visit 'e-nick' (www.e-nick.org), DNS translates this domain name into its IP address 210.77.145.16. This process enables the computer to have access for the web server directed by the domain name.

What is the syntax of domain names?

Top Level Domain
A domain name consists of two or more words that are separated by dots. The word at the right end is called the top-level domain name. The following are some most frequently used top-level domain names:
*.COM--is used for commercial organizations. It is the most common top-level domain name. Anyone can register domain names ended with .COM.
*.NET--is originally applied to Internet organizations such as Internet service and maintenance providers. It is now available for everyone.
*.ORG--is designed for all kinds of organizations including non-profit organizations. Anyone can register.ORG ended domain names.

Country codes
The top level domains with two letters like .cn, .uk, .de and .jp are called country code top level domains. (ccTLDs). .cn is the top level domain of China and its registration is supervised by ICANN. The second level domain names ended with .cn are simply called national domain names. Different counties have their own regulations and policies for registering the second-level country code domain names. It is recommended that you consult domain name registering organizations or companies for the relevant policies and terms. Some domain names registering companies provide top level country code registration except for registering top-level domains (.com, .net and .org). ICANN does not authorize registrars to provide services for country code domain names registration.

Second Level Domains
The next level of top level domain names is what we usually call second level domain names. Take photonhost.com as an example, the possible format of domain names is something.photonhost.com. In this case, 'something' here is called the host name or third-level domain name.

What is a URL?

URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator. It is your complete Internet address. It is the unique string of characters, such as http://www.e-nick.org , that directs people to specific locations on the Internet. Just as an address written on an envelope directs the post-office to deliver a letter straight to mailbox, a URL typed into an Internet browser leads directly to the location of a specific resource on the Internet.

Why should I pay for domain registration, others advertise it for free?

There are some misleading advertisements for cheap or even FREE domain registration. Read the fine print. They all have a disclaimer InterNIC will bill you separately $70 for two years".

Do I need to register all three domain name extensions: .com, .net and .org?

You will realize that the expense for domain name registration and support is minor compared to the marketing expense to promote and establish your domain name in the marketplace. The last thing you want to happen is to have someone else (your competitor in most cases) benefit from your efforts in establishing your name. You will see competitors registering names close to yours, trying to trying to benefit from typos your visitors may make. For example, someone registered internik.net in order to piggyback on the reputable internic.net. Our name is a good example as well.

I misspelled the domain name when I registered. Can I change the spelling of my domain name?

No.

How do I use my new domain?

Once you have completed the registration process, the next step is choosing a hosting service. If you already know who will host your web site you can specify their DNS servers at the subscription. If you haven't decided yet, leave the DNS servers blank, you can always add them later in the support section of our web site.

What happens if I don't pay?

Failure to pay your registration fees will result in your name being deleted from the Registry and made available for others to register. e-nick does not "warehouse" domain names. In the case of domain name(s) renewals, failure to pay will result in deletion of your domain name from the Registry. This can have unintended repercussions. If your domain name is attached to a web site, your web site will no longer be accessible.

How long is the registration period?

Top Level Domains can now be registered for up to 10 years. You will be asked to select the number of years you wish to register your Domain Name for during the tion process.

Does The Registry offer any discounts for registering multiple Domain Names?

Yes. www.e-nick.org offers significant price breaks for customers who are interested in purchasing multiple Domain Names through our Reseller Program.



Registration System

Why there is no information of the domain name I just registered on other websites?

This is a real-time registration system. Domain names registered on this system will be sent to Registry database. After you successfully registered, you can find your information on whois database. After you setup DNS, your domain name is ready for use.
InterNIC.net updates information of domain names through Registry main database. The information is refreshed one time everyday (at GMT 6:00-8:00 or eastern time of USA 1:00-3:00). Due to this update procedure, you can not find the information of your domain name instantly after registration. In most cases, you are able to find the information of the domain name until 8:30 (GMT) next day on InterNIC.
The information of registration provided by most websites comes from InterNIC.net so that you can't find the domain you have just registered on those sites or the search result is 'this domain name is available'

How to register DNS?

( Go to NSIregistry and make a registration. It's free ) - This information is obsolete now.
Currently we have our own interface for registering a DNS servers. Unfortunately this interface is not available for our clients for now.
Please contact us in order to register/update DNS servers in your domain name. This is free service.

What is a registrar?

A registrar is an organization or company that is either authorized by ICANN(Internet Corporation for Assigned Names & Numbers, an organization dedicated to Internet governance) to provide registration services for the .com, .net and .org global top-level domain names, or is authorized by its respective government to register domain names within a specific TLD(domain name extension). A registrar must also be authorized by the registry for a top level domain to act as an agent of the registry to process domain name registrations, where the agent is not a reseller. The registrar is also responsible for creating and maintaining a WHOIS database for its customers.

Is e-nick.org a registrar?

No, e-nick.org is autorized reseller of BulkRegister.COM.
BulkRegister.COMis a company that work only with resellers, not with end clients. By this reasons its prices are very low, so is ours.

What if e-nick.org stops their activity?

If e-nick.org stops activity, your domain name be transmitted free of charge to another (special, internal) reseller of BulkRegister.COM. Then you will have the possibility either to keep on working with this reseller or to transfer the domain name with another registrar.

Who is the legal registrant of a domain name?

The "registrant" of a domain name is the original administrative contact listed at the time of registration, regardless of whether the administrative contact information has been changed since then. In other words, the registrant of a domain name is the individual whose name and contact information were initially associated with the user name and password profile for the domain name when registered. If the administrative contact information has been changed since the original registration, the most recent administrative contact information entered will be visible in the WHOIS record. However, this information may not be that of the actual registrant of the domain name.

Determining Domain Name Ownership

The owner of a domain name is determined by the person or organization displayed at the top of the whois record. The administrative, technical, and billing contacts are individuals who the organization trusts to handle issues involving the domain name record. In some cases, the technical contact is an individual of the Internet service provider, and the administrative contact is a representative of the of the domain name owner. Regardless of who is listed as the administrative and technical contacts, the owner of the domain is listed as the registrant.



URL and e-mail forwarding

What is URL forwarding?

URL forwarding will automatically send visitors to a URL that you specify whenever they type your domain name in their browser. We support many different types of URL forwarding. Please consult with the information provided when you configure the forwarding.

What is e-mail forwarding?

E-mail forwarding allows you to have all e-mail sent to your domain to be forwarded to a e-mail address that you specify. For example, mail sent to something@yourname.com, can be configured to go to: yourname@yahoo.com.

How much does it cost to use URL and e-mail forwarding?

The services are free of charge, however the domain name MUST be registred or tranfered with us.

Yes. At the moment the second option is exactly as first one. We have plans to improve the host (as you probably notice, currently is aforward to system domain name). The development will be ready at about end of April 2002.

On the site I saw url as http://XXXX.COM.web.e-nick.photonhost.com/ what is this for? Do I need to know/use this?!?!

This is the system URL from previous question. You do not need to know this URL. However, you may use it as is. Examples are - Let your website points to Under Construction page, but you develop your site there. Other example is - use this for storage and host/forward your web site on/to different web server.
