Domain name registration FAQ
A domain name is an addressing construct used for identifying and locating computers on the Internet. While computers use Internet
Protocol (IP) numbers to locate each other on the Internet, people find them hard to remember. Therefore, domain names were developed
to permit the use of easily remembered words and phrases to identify Internet addresses.

Ever tried to register a good domain name?
• More than 25 million names are registered under .com, .net, and .org, though only
a small number of registered names are in active use.
• What remains? Millions become available at the speed of
over 900,000 per month. Many are immediately taken — for most people, it's almost
impossible to compete for the best names.
That's why we offer you back ordering domain name service.
For only $14.95 per domain we'll monitor the
name around the clock and attempt to register it for you the instant it becomes
available. The price includes the cost of your first year of registration.
A URL is a Universal Resource Locator, which tells a web
browser (Netscape, Internet Explorer, etc) where a web object is located. For
is the URL for this page that you are now viewing.
If you do not provide Domain Name Servers when you register the domain name, then your domain will be hosted with one of the
registrars we support OnlineNIC.com or eNom.com. If you do provide DNS Info when you register the domain name,
then it will be hosted at the servers you provided.
No one can "OWN" a domain name any more than one can "OWN" a telephone number.
However, when you register a domain name, the domain name cannot be taken by anyone else, and you are responsible for all aspects of the domain name.
You may choose to use .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .edu (if you are an educational institution), or any other TLD you choose.
First of all domain name must be available which can be verified with
domain name verification page.
Type in domain name you'd like to register not including "http://" or "www." in front of it and excluding
domain name extension (read below). If wanted domain name is available, you'll be prompted to register it.
The second rule is the rule of valid characters.
For normal ASCII domain names, the letters a-z, the numbers 0-9, and one special
character, the hypen or dash "-". Note that domains cannot start or end with a
hyphen. For the new testbed IDNs (Internationalized Domain Names), the full
range of Unicode characters are available. This allows nearly all of the
languages on the planet to be represented within domain names, including Thai,
Arabic, Lao, Hebrew, French, German etc.

Try different versions of the domain name, i.e. if you want to register mydomain.com and it's taken,
try my-domain.com. Insert hyphens, numbers or try a different spelling.
No. If the name shows up in the Whois Database, then the name is still registered. Like any utility company, if you don't pay your bill on time, they do not simply cut your service off, they give you time to send a payment to them.
That is the same thing that happens with a domain name, just because the date for the domain name to expire has past, doesn't mean that the domain name will become available the next day. You can keep checking the domain name in the whois database, and when it disappears, then the domain will be available for you to purchase or you can try out back order domain name service that will monitor the domain name day and night for you and register it as soon as it becomes available.
No. The registration process takes 24-72 hours to complete, so just because the
domain shows up as available, doesn't mean it is.
If you decide to delete domain name within 72 hours of it's registration you can do it if it's registered with OnlineNIC, Inc.
After you log-in go to Domain Manager, Delete domain.. From the list of domain names that can possibly be deleted select one
and insert domain administration password. If you successfully delete domain name your account
