Domain Registration

What kinds of domain names should I choose for my business?

Domain names need to be short, easy to spell, easy to remember and of course, reflecting your business and its purpose. We offer an array of domain names with extensions that would summarise your industry. We also offer auction domains at amazing prices.

Domain name renewal is easy. You can do it yourself using your panel settings. Vis-a-vis, we also offer to renew your domain automatically, where your account will be auto-debited of the renewal amount, when the due date of renewal arrives. Quite contrary to the popular belief, auto renewal is safe and card details of customers are maintained with us using utmost security.

We send an email intimation to you, 60 days prior to the expiry of your domain.

Yes, absolutely! It only takes an auth code from your registrar to transfer your domain to us.

Domain Transfer

You can transfer your domain whenever you want. However, ICANN prohibits transferring domains within 60 days of registration.

Most domain transfers take between five and seven days to complete, after your current registrar has approved the transfer. The time also depends on the extension.

Once your domain is expired, you will be charged annually to maintain the domain. The price is the then-current annual retail price applicable to the domain.

No. Rather, we encourage that you transfer your domain name before it expires, That would protect you from unneeded domain transfer complications.

If your domain has expired with your current Domain Registrar and you’ve renewed already it with them, wait till 45 days of the previous expiry date before transferring, since it will not add 1 more year to your domain name and you will lose out on the Renewal fees paid to the older Registrar.

Domain Bulk Search

The bulk search feature is useful if you need to check the availability of multiple domain names at once. Moreover, when you need to book a domain name with different extensions, you use the bulk booking tool.

Generally, registration and transfer process are quite straightforward and can be done by just about anybody. However, if still, you need assistance with anything, we offer 24/7 support across the year.

Domain Privacy

Domain privacy is super-important. It hides your information from WHOIS, so no one knows your contact information. As a result, you don’t get unwanted marketing calls, no one contacts you to ug you for domain selling and exchanges. Most importantly, spammers are kept miles away.

Yes. Domain privacy comes at a minimal additional cost. Every bit of that extra cost is absolutely worth it, given, your domain registration information stays completely private.

SSL Certificate

SSL on your website would mean, the data that a site visitor provides you, is encrypted while being sent and decrypted at your end, being protected through its transit.

Well, no. You can, however, choose to switch to a different SSL, considering the gravity of your security needs.
