Domain Purchases & Transfers

 

Domain purchases and transfers are simply made and registered with an approved internet registrar such as GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc.Domain purchases and transfers are simply made and registered with an approved internet registrar.  There are several approved registrars where you can search for, purchase, register, and host your domain.  We use GoDaddy because of our experience with their pricing and customer service over many years but other approved registrars can be used and trusted: Network Solutions, Namecheap, Name, Gandi, 1&1, etc.

Because domain purchases and transfers are fairly low in price with most internet registrars, customer service should be a major consideration. If you plan to use the web address for several years, you should register the domain for 5-10 years and not just to save a little money. We believe that one of the algorithms used by Google to rank sites is the number of years a domain is registered making it, therefore, an SEO issue.

How much weight is given to the length of time a site is registered for may be fairly low but good SEO is a combination of many factors so nothing known should be overlooked.  (See our SEO Glossary and related SEO pages)

Domain purchases and transfersAlthough domain purchases are usually inexpensive sometimes that is not always the case. There are speculators who purchase hundreds or even thousands of domains “on-spec” and make them available through registrars at a much higher price. If the desired domain has that particular situation, you can either buy it, make an offer, or simply look for another appropriate domain that is available under normal terms.

 

Domain transfers are from one registrant to another and/or from one domain host to another. This is a fairly routine procedure and usually takes a couple of days to become fully effective. In addition to providing services related to domain purchases, we also handle domain transfers which are from one registrant to another and/or from one domain host to another. This is a fairly routine procedure and usually takes a couple of days to become fully effective. The process will not interrupt the live status of either the website itself or email services related to the domain.

We also provide the service of moving a website’s hosting and email programs to a new hosting location. (It is not necessary to have both the domain and the website hosted at the same location or have the same provider).
