A domain is your online address where users can visit your website. It is registered in an online service called a domain registry. This service handles registration, renewal and management of domains. Each domain is unique, and it is not possible to register two identical domains. Therefore it is necessary to check whether a domain is still available or whether someone has already leased it before registering.
If you want to check if a domain is available or you want to register it, contact us.
After purchase, the domain belongs to you only for the period for which you lease it (at least 1 year); after that period and if you do not renew it, it is again available for lease to other users. For this reason, it is especially important to keep track of your domain expiration date. You can lose it and someone else can lease it.
The hosting provider should alert you in a timely manner and renew your domain for a fee. In case you are handling domain leasing by yourself, write yourself a reminder. Otherwise you will be unpleasantly surprised if a completely different website suddenly appears on your address.
