The importance of your own domain is undeniable in this day and age. Whether you're a company or an individual, a custom internet address is crucial. Thanks to checkdomain, purchasing a domain couldn't be easier.
Your online presence gives people the chance to find you anytime and anywhere. Luckily, our comprehensive customer service helps you buy a domain in a few simple steps and in record time.
Purchasing a domain is simple. Start off by verifying whether your desired address is still available. That's when you use the domain check from checkdomain.
Checkdomain then gives you a real-time update on the availability of the address. It also provides you with information about domain registration, country-specific features and prices for your domain purchase.
Tip: The name of your domain should be memorable and suit your online needs. If your chosen domain name is already taken, you might want to pair the name with a different domain extension. This is a viable solution if your initial choice was a highly popular domain extension such as .com or .de.
In addition to well-known domain extensions like .com or .de, checkdomain also offers a selection of more unusual country domains - feel free to choose from more than 1000 domain extensions from all over the world. Furthermore, we've been featuring hundreds of new domain extensions since 2014, ready for registration.
The next step in purchasing your domain is to secure the address of your new online presence on checkdomain.
Checkdomain will register the chosen domain with the relevant registry, provide an IP address and enter the IP number along with the newly secured internet domain into the so-called name server.
Domain registration and the purchase of a domain name are actually one and the same thing. Please note: the validity of a registration expires after a certain amount of time. Most are valid for a year and are renewed automatically unless you cancel your domain. In some cases, however, registration periods may last for up to ten years.
If you buy your own domain, you will also require the assistance of a provider. They give you access to webspace, a process which equips you with the necessary technical infrastructure. Failing this, you won't be able to build a website or to receive and send emails.
Checkdomain offers hosting plans to lay the foundations for your internet presence - a place to store your web pages, so to speak.
