Domain Registration FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is a domain?

A domain name, also called a web site address identifies your site to your customers. It allows your customers to reach your business without having to remember an obscure IP (Internet Protocol) address.  Each domain name must be unique; however many domain names can point to the same site or to pages within a site. For example if you type www.FineE.info into your browser you will  reach the www.FineE.com site. You can have any number of domains, each pointing to a particular page on a site.

How long does it take to register a domain?

The registration process can be completed online in a few minutes. If this is your first time you need to create a new account with either GKG or the merchant partner as appropriate.

What are Country Code Domains?

Country code domains are assigned to a particular country.  The country code domains offered here allow registrations from anywhere in the world and work in the same manner as a .com domain. Many country code domains have a distinct meaning quite separate from the original country name. The most meaningful featured here is .TV - Television at www.FineE.tv

Back to Top       

What are Third Level, Fourth Level Domains etc.?

The registrant of a .com domain obtains the second level domain and can create any number of third level domains below the second level domain etc. So for example in www.FineE.com  "com" is the first or top level, "finee" is the second level and "www" is the third level. This site www.Domain.Registration.FineE.com is an example of a fifth level domain. Same companies offer the registration of third level domains. Registration of a third level domain involves a contract with the registrant of the second level domain who is offering this service. This allows the registrant of the third level domain to use the domain. It should be noted that certain country code domains are only available as third level domains. For example in .co.uk domains. "uk" is the first level, "co" is the second level and the registrant is given the third level.

What are a Domain Name Servers (DNS) and which ones can I use?

Every functional domain on the Internet has at least 2 domain name servers (DNS) that respond when another computer on the Internet makes a request involving that domain. For example when a domain is entered into a browser or an email is sent to an address in that domain. If you already have DNS enter your DNS when you are prompted during the registration process. If you do not already have DNS for your domains you may park your domains with us for free by using the default DNS ns1.finee.net and ns2.finee.net. When you are ready to host your domain you hosting company will provide you with 2 or more DNS servers to use. Then follow the instructions on how to make DNS changes after registration to setup the new DNS servers.

Will I be able to resell my domain for US $1,000,000.00 the day after I register it?

Not likely. We believe that  a dose of reality is appropriate when considering the registration of domain names for the purpose of resale. While there have been a handful of sales over $1,000,000.00, these were highly generic very well chosen names and the seven figure resale typically occurred many years after the first registration. Many professional brokerage and auction sites will not let you list a domain until they see your registration on a whois server, and this can take approximately three days. There may be other requirements. Most domain sales occur at prices well below $10,000.00 with many sales below $1,000.00. The domain market is very illiquid, so consequently the registrant must be prepared in many cases to wait for years before finding the right purchaser.  In addition choosing domain names with the potential for appreciation requires considerable skill and expertise. And past results are no guarantee of future performance.

How do I find out who has registered a domain (issue a "whois" command)?
