Frequently asked questions
A domain name is simply a human readable form of an IP address. In other words, it's the destination you type into a web browser — such as www.google.com. Similar to how you would scroll to a contact in your phone rather than manually dialing a phone number, domain names make it easier for us to navigate the online world and avoid having to memorize long IP addresses.

Domain privacy and security is as important to us as it is to you. Without domain privacy, your private and sensitive information (which may include your name, home address, and contact numbers) may be collected and displayed in ICANN's WHOIS database when you register your domain. Domain privacy ensures that these details are hidden from the public view. Our Domain Privacy + Protection package will make ICANN display our contact information in lieu of yours.

Absolutely. In order to convey an air of professionalism with your online business, or even just make a good first impression, it is important to use an email address that matches your domain name. Creating a professional and business email couldn't be easier with Domain.com.
The exact cost of your new domain name will vary based on the registrar, the specific top-level domain (TLD) you've chosen, and the quality of the domain name. Domain.com is proud to offer more than 300 unique TLDs to help your new website stand out. Some domains may be pricier due to their intrinsic benefits, like being short and memorable, or the use of very competitive keywords such as cars.com. Browse our premium domains to jumpstart your website performance.
Great question! Here's a few core things to consider when choosing your new domain name:
- Choose a name that's creative and unique. This may be the differentiation needed to stand out amongst competitors. Take a domain name like BeanStreet.coffee, for example.
- Keep your name easy to remember as well. The sweet spot is ideally one or two words that capture the essence of your website. CoffeeLove.club is easier to remember than CoffeeAndCaffeineAddicts.com, for example.
- If you're a local business, consider adding your region to your domain name, such as .nyc or .asia, to help your site's visibility.
- Consider buying more than one domain. As your site's popularity increases, you don't want copycats to purchase similar domains before you do.
- And lastly, avoid numbers, hyphens, or symbols of any kind.
If your perfect domain name has already been taken by someone else, you can find out who registered it with a simple WHOIS lookup. That information may provide you with the details needed to contact the owner and negotiate a buyout.
Yes! Registering multiple domain names protects your brand from domain squatters or copycats who may try to register alternative versions of your domain. For example, if you own coffeelovers.com, you may want to consider registering coffeelovers.net and coffeelovers.org as well. You may want to consider misspelled versions of your domain name too.
