Domain names are crucial yet affordable for your online presence.
Like a post office box, you renew and pay for domain names annually. If it lapses, someone else can snatch it. Recovering a lapsed domain is often a nightmare. Thankfully, our clients have never faced this ordeal.
Several methods exist to buy and register domains. Moreover, CharlesWorks provides personal service benefits for domain registration.
Top Level Domains are the extensions of the domain, such as .com, .net, .org, etc. The most popular TLDs are .com and .net. If you find that your domain is already registered, you might try for an alternate TLD.
Including relevant business words in your domain is increasingly vital. Search engines use algorithms to rank sites based on word relevance. Consequently, many businesses choose domain names that reflect their business name. They also own domains with keywords featured on their website.
We advise all clients to be cautious when searching for a domain. Some companies buy searched domains to resell them at higher prices, often over $100. CharlesWorks can help you avoid this issue. Safely search for available domains at no cost with us. This ensures you don’t lose your preferred domain name.
Domain renewal costs vary by Top Level Domain (TLD), like .com, .net, and .info. The price also depends on the registrar and their country. At CharlesWorks, you can search for domains free of charge. Most domains are available for registration at around $15 per year. Click here to check for your domain.
Domain registration with CharlesWorks can include private registration (so your personal information is unavailable to others and you are protected more from spammers and scams).
When you register a domain without privacy, your name, address, email address and phone number are made available to anyone. Your personal information is exposed 24 hours a day, every day, to anyone, anywhere. Domain privacy protects you from that with a Private Registration for a small additional charge. The “privacy” shields you – preventing your personal information from being placed out publicly on the Internet for the spammers, stalkers, and other unsavory individuals and companies who would harvest and use your personal information.
DNS Set Up Included
DNS is the worldwide system that enables your computer to determine which Internet address (the numbered address) goes with the web address (URL) you entered in your browser. Then your computer can talk to the computer (known as the server) that runs that website. DNS is like a phone directory for IP addresses – it converts names to numbers. When you look up a domain name in your web browser, DNS provides your browser software (like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome or Apple’s Safari and so on) the IP address so it can find and display the website for you.
Renewal charges for domains vary by Top Level Domain (TLD) such as .com, .net, and .info. The cost also depends on the registrar and their country. CharlesWorks offers free domain searches. You can register most domains for about $15 per year.
