Domain Name Registration
The right domain name is critical to branding your website and your business success!
These days is it possible to register your own domain name, but we can consult on the availability and best choices for your business. We have even been known to be creative! If we do manage your domain, we look after everything for you including its renewal. Your domain is always held in a trust which means it’s in our client registry, but is in your ownership.
Are you tired of getting those annoying domain renewal letters? We can take care of that for you by simply transferring your domain into our registry so that all invoicing will then come from Abacus Web Services. Another benefit to transferring your domain is that it creates a one-year extension to your domain registration period.
Your Domain Is Still Important
Your actual domain name and the extension are still important! A .com domain has a slightly higher ranking in Google than another extensions. Be careful in taking on another extension (for example .net, .us, web) when the .com is already in use. Often people will assume that it is .com and you will lose the traffic and the business.
How Domains Work
When you type in a domain, for example, www.abacuswebservices.com the request first goes to the domain registry (Hover, Network Solutions, GoDaddy) and from there it picks up where the website is hosted and then finally the domain hits the correct web server and you see the web page. It all happens so quickly that you are unaware of the process, but it is very efficient.
