If you already have a domain name, you can skip this step and go straight to ordering the email plan that best meets your needs.
- Domain names can be a word, a name, a phrase... virtually any combination of alpha-numeric characters
- Domain names can not include any spaces and must only use letters, numbers and hyphens ( dashes "-" )
- A domain name can be as short as 3 characters or as long as 63 characters plus the ending extension of .com, .net, .org, .info
- A domain name cannot begin or end with a hyphen (dash)
- Domain names are not case sensitive; therefore there isn't any reason to use capital letters when registering them. NOTE that if you see the domain name given in all capital letters during the registration process, that is OK. The actual registration is made in all lower case letters. When you tell people your domain name in your email address, it's OK to use capital letters to make it easier to read-- for example: you can use @TheJonesFamily.com instead of @thejonesfamily.com.
- All domain names must be unique. There can only be one email address or website with the same domain name. We provide you a search tool to find out if a domain name is available for registration.
- If the name you want is already in use, check for variations. For instance, if you want @"mybusinessname.com", try variations of the spelling or word order. Or try adding hyphens (dashes "-") between words.
For example, check the availability of "my-business-name.com" or "mybusinessnameonline.com" or "shopmybusinessname.com". And don't forget to check the name with the other extensions like: "mybusinessname.NET", "mybusinessname.ORG", or "mybusinessname.INFO".
