Your domain name is your online address, such as example.com
. In most cases, you will be asked to register this name on your own, then delegate us the permissions we need. If you're not comfortable with this process, we may be able to offer additional options, but generally this process is best for you as well, because:
- You'll save money. Registrars offer us the same prices that are available to you, but we assess a fee for handling this and generally require a service agreement (more on that next).
- You are always in control. If we manage your domain name, our action is required to do virtually anything--selling or transferring, configuring new services (like e-mail), renewing or ceasing to renew. If you don't have an ongoing service agreement with us, any of these situations could put everyone in an uncomfortable position if our workload doesn't allow us to handle your concerns immediately.
- You're free to go. With limited exceptions, our contracts don't include exclusivity or long-term commitments. If you want or need to go, no matter the reason, we want to make sure that our breakup is an easy one. However, if we manage your domain settings and you don't have an active support plan, we may find our business interests at odds with our ethical standards.
We do not host websites, but we are able to offer hosting through partner sites if you prefer. If you'd rather pay a hosting service directly, we will happily work with you to set things up properly.
