It All Starts With A Domain Name
It’s common to pick up the .com, .ca, and .net domain names all at the same time, so that nobody else has a similar name.
Frequently Asked Questions
How often does a domain name renew?
When you buy a domain you purchase registration periods in terms of years. You can buy from 1 to 10 years at a time. Hint: Google ranks your website higher if your domain registration period is longer.
Should the domain match the company name?
You should try to match your company or organizational name as closely as possible so that is it recognizable to your customers.
Can I cancel my domain name?
Domain names are active for a minimum of one year. If you no longer want your domain name you just don’t renew it.
Should I buy more than one domain?
Yes, it is common to pick up the .com, .ca, and .net domain names all at the same time, so that nobody else has a similar name.
How long can I make my domain name?
It is a good practice to try and keep your domain name as short as possible, while having it recognizable. Remember that people will have to type this name in their browsers and when sending you email.
Can I change my domain name?
Each domain name is unique. You cannot rename a domain name, you would need to purchase the new one and let the old name lapse.
