Domains Registration - Frequently Asked Questions

What is a domain name?
A domain name is the essence of your company's online identity. It is the address your customers use to find information about your products and services on the web. Domain names allow Internet users to type in a name, such as SolutionsAssistant.com, to identify a numeric Internet Protocol (IP) address such as 100.10.10.100. The purpose of domain names is to allow users connected to the Internet the ability to find web sites without having to memorize the long, numerical (IP) addresses that actually locate the computers or servers on the Internet.

What does it mean to "Register" a domain name?
There is a central registry of all domain names on the Internet. For your domain name to become a part of the registry, your domain name needs to be added to that registry. "Registering" a domain name means you are associated with that domain name for the period of the registration. Only ICANN-approved Registrars have access to the database. "Registering" a name means you own it, and no one else can register that exact same name!

Who should register a domain name?
Anyone thinking about establishing a presence on the Internet should register a domain name. You don't have to utilize it right away, but you can reserve it for your future use. Domains are being registered at the rate of more than 900,000 per month - they go quickly!

How long does the registration process take?
The decision on which domain to register will usually take longer than the actual registration process. The process should take less than two minutes to complete. As an ICANN-approved registration service, all registrations take place in real time - once your application has been processed and approved, your name is registered.

Is it possible for someone to register my domain name after I have registered it?
No. The availability of .com, .net and .org domain names is verified through a central registry system. This system prevents a domain name that is successfully registered from being registered by another person or entity. Solutions Assistant's registration and processing system updates the central registry in real time.

If a domain name is already registered, can I find out who owns the name?
Yes. If you check the availability of a domain name and it is already registered, you can look at the whois information. This will display the contact information associated with a registered domain name.

I've got my domain name, now what?
There are many uses for your new domain name. Some people want to have a personal or business website; others want to establish an email address; and still others want to hold onto their domain for future use or sale.

If you would like to have a Website or an email account, your Web hosting company or Internet Service Provider (ISP) will supply you with their Domain Name Server Information (DNS info). This DNS information must be added to the domain in order for your new Website to be accessible to anyone in the world. It's really simple!

I own a new domain, but when I type it into my browser, nothing comes up.
A domain name is not a website. It's simply an address someone uses to find a website. If you would like to have a website, you must create it first. Once your Domain Name Server Info (DNS Info) has been updated, usually within 24-48 hours, your new Website will be accessible to anyone in the world to see, including you!
