    Q. What is a Domain Name?
    A. Domain Names are the easy-to-remember names which are the specific network location on the Internet for your website that provides you with an address that other Internet users can use to find you on the World Wide Web.
    Q. What is a URL?
    A. URL stands for Universal Resource Locator and is a unique identifier for your web address. Your URL contains your domain name. An example of a URL is http://www.pccalloutservice.com.
    No two web sites can have the same URL. Whoever registers a domain name first gets to use it in their URL. This is why it is important to register your domain name before someone else does.
    Q. What is an IP Address?
    A. Every computer on the Internet has a numeric address called an IP Address, which is used to identify the location of the computer. An example of an IP address is 195.224.253.107. Each domain name replaces this string of numbers with a simple word or expression. Having a domain name means you don't have to remember a cumbersome numeric address.
    Q. What is a DNS?
    A. DNS stands for Domain Name Server (also referred to as Domain Name Service or Domain Name System). A DNS translates domain names into IP addresses. If someone wants to access pccalloutservice's web site (www.pccalloutservice.com), the DNS translates the domain name into its corresponding IP address 195.224.253.107, allowing the computer to locate Pc Callout Service's web server.
    Q. What is ICANN?
    A. ICANN is the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is a non-profit, private sector corporation formed in October 1998. ICANN has been recognized by the U.S. Government as the global consensus entity to coordinate the technical management of the Internet's domain name system, the allocation of IP addresses, the assignment of protocol parameters, and the management of the root server system.
    ICANN is dedicated to preserve the operational stability of the Internet; to promote competition; to achieve broad representation of the global Internet community; and to coordinate policy through private sector, bottom-up, consensus-based means.
    ICANN is located at www.ICANN.org.

    Q. What is a Registrant?
    A. The entity, organization, or individual listed as the legal holder of the domain name is known as the Registrant.
    Top
    Q. What is a Registrar?
    A. The organization responsible for the actual registration of the domain name is known as the Registrar.
    Top
    Q. What is an Administrative Contact?
    A. The Administrative Contact is the person or organization authorized by the Domain Name Registrant to act on behalf of the legal entity listed as the owner of the domain name. The Administrative Contact should be able to answer non-technical questions about the legal entity's plans for using the domain name and the procedures for establishing sub-domains.
    Top
    Q. What is a Billing Contact?
    A. The Billing Contact is the person or organization that will be invoiced for registrations and renewals of the Domain Name.
    Top
    Q. What is a Technical Contact?
    A. The Technical Contact is the person or organization that maintains the domain name Registrant's primary name server and resolves software, and database files. The Technical Contact keeps the name server running and interacts with technical people in other domains to solve problems that affect the domain name. An Internet Service Provider often performs this role. If the Technical or Billing Contact information is missing from the Registration Agreement, it is presumed that the domain name Registrant has authorized the Administrative Contact/Agent to act as the Technical Contact.

    Q. How do I register my Domain Name?
    A. Domain names ending with .com, .net., .org, .co.uk can be registered through many different companies (known as "registrars").
    Top
    Q. How much does a Domain Registration Cost?
    A. Each registrar sets the price it charges for registering names, and prices vary significantly among different registrars. In addition, some registrars offer discounted or free registration services in connection with other offerings, such as web hosting.
    Top
    Q. I have misspelled my domain name. How do I go about getting it corrected?
    A. Unfortunately, once a Domain Name is registered, it can not be altered, including spelling corrections. An alternative is to register the correctly spelled domain name and forward the incorrect one to your correct one. This will allow your customers can still find you even if they make the same mistake.
    Top
    Q. How long can a Domain Name be and what are the restrictions?
    A. A Domain Name can have a maximum of 67 characters including the extension (.com, .net, .org). A Domain Name can contain numbers (0-9), letters (a-z) or dashes (-). A domain name cannot start or end with a dash (-). A Domain Name cannot have characters such as (! @#$%&? ~: _).
    Top
    Q. Will my name and contact information be publicly available?
    A. Yes. Information about who is responsible for domain names is publicly available to allow rapid resolution of technical problems and to permit enforcement of consumer protection, trademark and other laws. The registrar will make this information available to the public on a "Whois" site.
    Top
    Q. How do I renew my Domain Registration?
    A. Each registrar has the flexibility to offer initial and renewal registrations in one-year increments, with a total registration period limit of ten years.
    Top
    Q. Do I have to have a web page now that I have a Domain Name?
    A. Domain Name Registration is simply a name reservation service, and you are not required to do anything with your Domain Name. You may wish to simply reserve it, forward e-mail through it, or construct a web site. It is completely up to you.
