Domain Name Registration
We offer domain registration and consultancy services to clients seeking a suitable URL. These solutions are generally provided as a part of our website design and development packages and in certain cases, on a stand-alone basis.
We also deliver consultancy services to help clients select the appropriate site name for their business. Though it appears uncomplicated, selecting the right URL involves detailed research and insight into the client’s business and industry. Moreover, we need to understand the target audience for the client’s portal – whether they are from a certain region or country or are based across the world. The in-depth research helps us to identify whether the client should opt for a generic top-level domain (gTLD) or a country code top-level domain (ccTLD), and also whether the client’s business name is available for purchase under the preferred gTLD or ccTLD sub-structure of the root Domain Name System (DNS).
The ubiquitous spread of the internet has resulted in a phenomenon called cybersquatting in which businesses buy popular site names at discounted prices to sell them at later dates for hefty profit margins. Such practices directly increase the overall cost of purchasing an URL. Our research ensures that our clients get the proper information and advice that helps them save on costs, yet still obtain the portal of their choice. In cases where the client prefers a name that has been already bought and then put up for sale, we enter into talks with the squatters to get the chosen URL for our clients. We ensure that our customers do not incur any abnormal expenses in this process. We also help find general or specialised names that reflect the brand or solutions of our clients more obviously than others.
