Regarding Domain Name Registration
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


What is a domain name?
A domain name is the essence of your company's online identity. It is the address your customers use to find information about your products and services on the web. Domain names (also URL) allow Internet users to type in a name, such as 007-host.com, or
MyName.com (or ... .net or ... .org) to identify a numeric Internet Protocol (IP) address such as 213.221.29.106. The purpose of domain names is to allow users connected to the Internet the ability to find web sites without having to memorize the long, numerical (IP) addresses that actually locate the computers or servers on the Internet.

Why are your fees so low?
Our system is completely automated; this cuts down on the man power it would normally take to provide such a service. The domain registration market is wide open to companies like 007-Host, and since the competition is fierce, we decided to minimize our profits in web hosting and domain name registration per customer to attract a large number of customers and to function as a wholesale domain name registry service. Our commitment to low prices reflects both volume savings, as well as the efficiency of our leading-edge automated technology.

What does it mean to "register" a domain name?
There is a central registry of all domain names on the Internet. For your domain name to become a part of the registry, your domain name needs to be added to that registry. "Registering" a domain name means you are associated with that domain name for the period of the registration. "Registering" a name means you own it, and no one else can register that exact same name!

Who should register a domain name?
Anyone thinking about establishing a presence on the Internet should register a domain name. You don't have to utilize it right away, but you can reserve it for your future use. Domains are being registered at the rate of more than several hundred thousand per month - they go quickly!

Back to top


How long does the registration process take?
The application process should only take a few minutes to complete. All registrations take place in real time - once your application has been processed and approved, your name is registered.

Is it possible for someone to register my domain name after I have registered it?
The availability of .com, .net and .org domain names is verified through a central registry system. This system prevents a domain name that is successfully registered from being registered by another person or entity. Our registration and processing system updates the central registry in real time.

What methods of payment does 007-Host accept?
We accept all major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover.

If a domain name is already registered, can I find out who owns the name?
Yes. If you check the availability of a domain name and it is already registered, click on the box: "Show Registrant Information". This will display the contact information associated with a registered domain name.

I've got my domain name, now what?
There are many things you can do with your new domain. Some people want to build a website for their corporate or personal use. If that is the case, you might want to host your site with us (but you can also host it with any other web host). Contact your web host, and get their Domain Name Server Info (DNS Info .. if hosting with us, the DNS already points to our servers). You can have the new DNS info put into your domain by clicking on the "Manage Your Domain" link. The domain will then transfer to your new web host in 12-48 hours. Others want to do email addresses. Again, get the DNS info of your ISP. You can have them set up mailboxes to route from your domain being hosted on their web servers. Some just want to resell their domain name. In that case, you may certainly sell your new domain to whomever you like. You may transfer your domain to a new buyer by using our "Transfer of Ownership" form in the "Manage Your Domain" section.

I own a new domain, but when I type it into my browser, nothing comes up.
Again, a domain name is not a website, just a web address for a website. If you want your new domain to be a web address for a website for your corporate or personal use, you must contact a web design/hosting company. Once they have a website ready for you, we can have your new domain hosted by their servers. Contact your web host, and get their Domain Name Server Info (DNS Info). You can have the new DNS info put into your domain by clicking on the "Manage Your Domain" link. The domain will then transfer to your new web host in 24-48 hours. If you already have a website, and registered a new domain for it, be aware that some hosting companies do not accept a domain being hosted on their host servers (members.abigisp.com/your-abigisp-site~template1765, for example) Also, it may take a few days for the routing to propagate to your new host on an acceptable server.

Why to Transfer Registrars and How to Change DNS
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) 

Click here to transfer registrars ($12)


What does it mean to transfer registrars?
If you already own a domain, you registered it using a domain name registrar. By using our Transfer Registrar tool, you are simply transferring your domain from the registrar you originally registered to our registrar. (Please note, there is a 60-day transfer hold - which means you have to wait two months from the initial registration before you can transfer your domain.)

Back to top


How much does it cost?
You can transfer your domain from your previous domain registrar to us for just $12. This will add up to one year to the original registration term. For example, if your domain is due to expire in 5 months, you can transfer it to us for $12, and it will then expire in 1 year and 5 months.

Back to top


Why would I want to transfer registrars?
When you registered your domain you probably paid up to $50.00 to reserve it. Now that it is coming due, you can save yourself some money by taking advantage of 007-Host.com's extremely low transfer prices. In addition, once the transfer is complete, you will be able to easily manage your domain by using our secure online manager.

Back to top


Maybe I don't need to transfer registrars in order to change DNS?
If you do NOT pay a much higher annual domain name registration fee (again, our's is $9.75 per year), and if you like to keep your present registrar but want to transfer your website to us at 007-Host, then you only need to contact your present registrar to change your account setup there - so that it points to our server. In many cases your present registrar's website will allow you to do this by yourself (in the "Account Management" or "My Account" section). You will need to update the nameserver and netaddress information (DNS) as instructed in the hosting welcome message we will send you.

Back to top


Will transferring change my information?
No. All existing information in your domain record will be preserved. Once the transfer has been completed, you can then use the Domain Management System to change any information you choose.

Back to top


How do I change registrars?
Click on this Transfer Registrars link. Enter the domain(s) you wish to transfer. The administrative contact will receive an email to confirm the transfer(s). (Please note: If the admin contact's email address is outdated, they will not be able to receive the email, and there can be no confirmation, and thus, no transfer. You must update your admin contact's email address with your prior registrar first.)
