Check your domain availability:
Don’t Forget Domain ID Protection
Regulations require that you provide accurate personal information when you register your domain name, which includes your address, phone number, and email addresses. With ID Protection, your personal information is shielded from public domain lookups.
Protected Registration includes the following features:
Domain Ownership Protection
Protects you from losing your domain name if you fail to renew it, or if we are unable to charge your credit card for any reason. If you do not renew your domain name, we will hold it for you for up to one year. During that period of time, your domain name is kept in an inactive, protected state, and browsing to your domain will result in a parked page. Any related services will not remain active during this period. To reactive the domain name during this period, you will need to pay any associated renewal fees for your domain name and the Protected Registration service.
Lockdown Transfer Protection
While your domain name is active, this protection restricts any inadvertent, accidental, or malicious transfer. Unlike standard domain name locks, which occur at the registry level, this transfer protection offers an even higher level of security – locking your domain name in your specific Newtek account.
Ownership Protection Reports
Domain name status reports and updates in your account, which help you keep track of vital domain name information.
Expert Advice-How To Pick Your Domain Names
- Keep your primary domain as simple as possible. If your company name with .COM is available, that’s your most obvious choice.
- Protect your brand identity by securing alternate extensions. While your company.COM is great, it’s a good idea to also register the .NET, .INFO, and .ORG if they are available.
- Secure your best search keywords. If, for example, you own a landscaping business in Kansas City, KansasCityLandscaping.COM is a great domain to secure. Search engines, specifically Google, will rank your site higher on keywords that are in your domain name.
- Is your domain easy to misspell? If so, be sure to secure the most common misspellings of your business or domain name.
