Domain Names
Domain Name Frequently Asked Questions


Can anyone register a domain?

Yes, it does not matter what country you live in or even if you have a web site.

How much does it cost?

The cost of registering a domain name is only $8.95 per year. You can select a registration period ranging from 1 to 10 years. There are no other fees, no NIC fees, no setup fees, no domain parking fees.

I thought I could only register domains through NSI?

After recent changes the domain name registration system is now open to other companies besides NSI.

What is the difference between a domain registered through your service and one registered through Network Solutions?

There is absolutely no difference, other than our excellent service and much enhanced tools to assist you.

Do I own the domain I register?

Absolutely. It is yours to sell, keep, do whatever you like.

What is bulk registration?

Bulk registration enables you to register multiple domain names at once, saving you time on the process. When you type all the domain names you want in the bulk look-up, it will tell you which domain names are not available and will let you continue with the available names. If you type the domain names without the extensions it will find all available .com, .net or .org. If you type with the extensions it will only search names with that particular extension.

Can I transfer domain to you from other registrars?

You able able to renew your domain at our rates by transferring them to us.

Managing your domain name:

How do I edit my domain information?

All you need to do is login at and log in with your username and password.

Can I change my domain name and registration period?

No. Once your registration is completed your domain name and registration period is sent to the root servers. After that point the domain name itself and the registration period cannot be changed.

Does it cost anything to make changes to my domain?

No, we charge nothing! It is all in your control, and you have an excellent tool, Manage Account, to maintain, edit, and update your domain information. We will continue to enhance the features of this program.

How long does it take for my information to be updated?

After the first registration, as soon as you receive the confirmation via email your data will be in our database. Then if you need you can login to the Domain Manager to update your data. Once you modify your domain information it is instantly updated on our server. It may take up to 24 hours for root servers of InterNIC to reflect the updates.

I received a confirmation that my domain registration had been processed but when I do a whois, it says that my domain is available?

If you use our WHOIS utility you will not encounter this problem because our database is updated immediately. Network Solutions database is usually updated once a day, but sometimes it takes two or three days. In other WHOIS searches, until their database is updated, your domain will show as not being registered. However it is registered, and can not be reserved by another person. To make sure your domain is registered, use our WHOIS utility.

I have forgotten my password (and/or username), how can I get it?

Email [email protected] with your request including your domain name or order ID. Your Username and Password will be sent to the Admin Contact e-mail.

Can I sell or transfer ownership of my domain?

Yes, domain name is yours to either sell or keep. You can login to Domain Manager and change all contact information to the new owner. Then provide the new owner with the username and password, and tell him to change the password. Please be advised, you cannot do that if you are keeping multiple domains under one profile. If you are going to sell a domain, it would be easier for you to register that domain under its own profile. Otherwise, the domain will need to be separated from the profile before transferring. It is also advised that in selling domain names you protect yourself with written documentation to avoid possible legal disputes
