FAQ – YOUR QUESTIONS? WE GOT ANSWERS!
WHY SHOULD I REGISTER A DOMAIN NAME?
Registering a domain name builds your credibility on the Internet. Use domain names to support your business and assist in creating a dynamic online presence. Your domain name establishes your online identity and increases branding, marketing and communication opportunities.
CAN I TRANSFER MY DOMAIN TO DOMAINRIGHTNOW?
Absolutely. You can transfer your domain to DomainRightNow from another registrar. Transferring your domain to DomainRightNow involves two steps. You’ll complete some steps with your current registrar, and some steps with DomainRightNow. We will guide you through these steps to make it as easy as possible.
DOES IT MAKE SENSE TO REGISTER MULTIPLE DOMAIN NAMES?
Yes. Register multiple domain names to keep your competition from registering a domain name that draws customers away from you. This will enable you to enjoy more opportunities to market to, and be listed on more search engines. You can also capture common misspellings of your domain name, instead of sending visitors to an error page.
HOW DO I FORWARD MY DOMAIN NAME TO ANOTHER WEBSITE?
Your domain must be registered with DomainRightNow in order to use domain forwarding. Within our Domains Settings page, you can then select to forward your domain to another website, social sites, online stores, or media sites. Once you choose a forwarding destination, simply follow the instructions provided to connect your domain (usually by entering the URL of the site and clicking the Connect Domain button).
CAN I KEEP MY CONTACT INFORMATION PRIVATE?
Yes. Per our agreement with ICANN, we must add valid contact information to the WHOIS directory for each domain you register. However, by purchasing Private Registration as part of the domain checkout process, you can hide your personal contact information and display proxy information instead. Note: Some registries don’t allow Private Registration (e.g., .US). If that’s the case for your domain, the option to add privacy will not show up in your Domain Manager.
CAN I CHANGE THE NAMESERVERS FOR MY DOMAIN?
DomainRightNow gives you full control over the DNS of your domain. To connect your domain name to your website you’ll need to change your nameservers. You will be able to change your DNS entries at any time on the DNS Management page, under the section Nameservers.
