How to Buy & MAINTAIN a Domain Name?

There are various websites which provide domain name registration service. Buying a domain is rather simple as you just need to pick and click. The registration fees for a Domain may vary and sometimes cause confusion. Some registrars may offer a Domain at only S$3.99 each, which all depend on the on-going promotions.

A typical domain registration service usually comes with various additional features such as free domain parking, email forwarding, etc.

Try to Plan Ahead, Set Auto-renewal
You will be charged a fee each year for renewal if you do not reserve / renew the domain for multiple years. Securing your desired domain name for the future saves you a lot of hassle. Losing your domain and re-registering it again can be a big headache. We highly recommend that you set up domain auto-renewal to make it simple and avoid losing your domain.

Re-Register Your Domain Name within REDEMPTION PERIOD
You’ll have a 30-day redemption period after the domain name expires, just in case you do not renew your domain name due to unforeseen circumstances. You may re-register or transfer your domain within this period, but some companies may charge you an extra fee up to USD250.00. So make sure you remember as this is your Last Chance to get back your domain.

Lock-Up Period
There is a 5-day lock-up period for the domain after the redemption period. In this stage, your domain CANNOT be restored or transferred. When the domain is released to the public after the 5-day period, you should be aware that ANYONE now has the privilege to register that domain.

WHOIS Protection to Keep Your Personal Info SAFE
In order to have your personal information protected, you need WHOIS ID Protection which is provided by most registrars. For a small fee, you’ll be able to protect your phone number, email address and physical address.

Domain names are considered a SMALL investment with BIG return as it allows your customers to remember your business and ONLINE IDENTITY. So take good care of your domain and your business can build great reputation over time.
