Domain Name Registration
Registering a Domain Name for your website in most cases is the
easiest and most inexpensive task. MJM Design can register a new Domain
Name for your business website for as little as $12.99 per year.
This includes the ability to forward additional domains to the
same website or other places on that website at no additional
What is a Domain Name?
domain name is basically an address for your website. The
cost is $12.99 per year for MJM Design to register a Domain Name
for your website.
If you purchase website hosting from MJM Design, the domain
name registration fee is
waived. You need a domain name and it should probably be your
company name to make it simple. Avoid fancy or long names and
names with hyphens or common misspellings. We can advise and
assist you in the selection of your domain name.
Why are .com names more valuable?
Owning a .com name has several benefits over other types of domain
recognized as the standard, as even after a few days online
new comers to the web will learn that most website addresses
use the .COM top level domain (TLD).
They are recognized as the TLD for commercial business use. Domain names that
end in .com are typically for commercial businesses, while
.net can be used for intranets or alternatively, when the .com version is
already taken. .Org domain names are typically used for non-profit
organizations and .edu for colleges and universities and .gov specifically
for the US government.
Why should I secure a .com name for my
For all the reasons outlined in the answer to the previous
question, .com names represent the premium real estate of the
Internet. If you are lucky enough to find an available .com name
that you like, buy it immediately as they are constantly
registered at an aggressive rate.
Can I buy
a .com domain even if I am not in the US?
Yes. .com domains are
available in any country, even though the registration process
takes place through InterNIC in the US. Note that you will be
billed in US$ for any transactions carried out by InterNIC.
domain should I choose for my company, ".com", ".biz" or ".us"?
That's up to you. Our view is that
.com is more international, and can often prove cheaper than a
".yourcountry" domain. This is especially true for countries
such as Japan, where a ".jp" top domain costs nearly twice as
much as an equivalent ".com" top domain. On the other hand, some
companies in more inward-looking countries may actually prefer
to have a "local" top domain. At the end of the day it does not
really matter very much as your company will still be accessible
from anywhere in the world no matter what top domain you chose.
Do I have
to own a company to register a .com name?
not. Anyone is welcome to register a .com name for
current or future use. MJM Design's fee of $12.99 is only for a 1 year
registration. Additional years can be purchased at the same rate. ICANN fees may also
affect this price by a couple
of cents either way.
