Depending on what it is for. Commerce or a large number of customers per day, the 'business plan' is the best option. It also has Imuniffy 360, additional options for malware protection.

What is a domain name?

A domain is what makes your website visible to the outside world. For example, our domain is neobyte.net, which is what you had to click on/type in to get here. A domain should be considered "virtual real estate" where your online presence begins. Nowadays have a domain and a website is even more important than having a phone number!

What is the difference between a domain and web hosting?

A domain is the actual name people will use to navigate to your website. Web hosting is what powers the storage/back-end of your website to make it functional. You may order a domain without web hosting (some people hold them as investments, others redirect to existing websites) but you may not purchase web hosting without a domain.

I already have a domain, can I transfer it to Neobyte?

Absolutely! If you have already registered your domain with another provider (such as GoDaddy), you may use the form above to "transfer" it from them over to us. Don't worry if it's not up for renewal, you won't lose any time you've already paid for, most domains (i.e. .com, .net, .org) actually get an additional year free once transferred.

What is the difference between .com, .net, .org?

In the earlier days of the Internet you were basically limited to three TLDs; .com (Commercial), .net (Network), and .org (Organization). Over the last decade+ there are now hundreds of TLDs (i.e. .biz, .us, .dev, .xyz, etc.) giving you many more options to choose from. While .com is (and alway swill be) the most popular, you are welcome to search for the TLD/gTLD that works best for you.

How do domain registrations work?

First, you have to search and see if your domain is available. If it is, you can take ownership of the name by registering it, which includes a yearly renewal fee (i.e. $12.98/year for .com). Failure to pay this renewal fee makes the domain available for registration again.

What are premium domains?

Some highly sought domains have already been registered by investors or other organizations and they make them available on the "aftermarket." Domains that show as premium are still available, but most of the time a much higher rate than an original registration.

Can I register more than one domain for my website?

Yes! You can register as many domains as you wish for your website, but only one may actually serve the website. For example, neobyte.com is our primary domain, but we own many other domains that redirect to our website, such as neobyte.be.

How can I setup my email at my own domain?

If you have an existing email account (i.e. at gmail.com) you may register a domain and purchase "email forwarding" to give you the ability to forward emails from @yourdomain.com to your gmail.com account. If you'd prefer to have a separate email account for your domain, these are available with all our web hosting packages.

Once I register a domain, can I change it later?

Unfortunately all domain registrations are final upon payment and cannot be changed. Therefore it's very important when registering a domain to double check the spelling. However, you do not have any obligation to continue renewing the domain each year, you can let it expire once the first year is up.

How do I use the domain search engine above?

Simply enter a phrase (with or without a TLD) and click search. Our domain search engine will then immediately show available domains and provide a number of suggestions to help you find the perfect domain for your business.
