Frequently Asked Questions
What is a domain name?
A domain name is the online address for your website. The IP address is a unique string of numbers and other characters that is used across the Internet to access websites from any device or location. Think of a domain like a contact number in your phone. Instead of typing a series of complicated numbers (IP address) into a browser, you type in a domain name. A domain name can be followed by many unique TLDs, giving you a chance to stand out online.
How Should I Choose My Domain Name?
Choosing a domain name is important for your website because it represents your brand or business online. We recommend choosing a short domain with relevant keywords so visitors can easily access your website. While your domain can include letters, numbers or hyphens, you’ll want to avoid any special characters so it’s easy to remember and type into a web browser.
Is My Domain Name Available?
Since there are so many domain name options to choose from, the first thing you want to check is that your chosen domain name is still available. To begin, you will enter the domain name in the search box and then click “Search” for your results. When the search is complete, if your domain name is available, you’ll be directed to a page where you can review and purchase it. In the event your domain name isn’t available, Wimasco can provide several variations and extensions of that domain name for you to choose from.
Is Domain Name Privacy + Protection Worth It?
When you purchase a domain name, your personal information is registered to your domain and can be found in the public WHOIS directory. In order to keep your information private you want to utilize Wimasco’s Domain Privacy + Protection, which also helps protect you from spam and identity theft by keeping your personal information concealed and instead listing generic Wimasco contact information. Domain Privacy + Protection also scans the website you created with your domain and alerts you if there are any changes made or if there is any harmful malware.
