Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name like www.your-domain-name.co.za is a website address that people will use to find you on the internet. Domain names are used as an address to locate businesses, organizations, or other entities on the Internet.
The domain name is the foundation of your website (www.your-domain-name.co.za) as well as your email address (email@example.com), using a well thought up domain name allows your customers to identify and remember you more easily on the Web.
A great benefit of using your own domain name is that regardless of how many times you change your website hosting provider, your Email and website address will always remain the same.
I don't have a website yet, why do I need a domain name now?
Registering your domain name now ensures that you own the domain name that may not otherwise be available when you want it.
Once registered, the domain name is yours, provided the domain renewal fees are paid each year.
You can park the domain, use it, sell it or lease it to other individuals or companies.
Domain parking is included free with all our domain name registrations and transfers.
