Domain Name Management
I Don’t Need Website Domain Name Management!
Well, maybe not, but think about this scenario. You’ve just registered that perfect domain name for a year at GoDaddy.com and associated with it your GMail account email address. What could go wrong? Unfortunately your GMail account got hacked and you had to close it and open a new one, with a new address. Now your domain name needs renewing and you’ve forgotten you password to their site. No problem you think, they’ll send it to my email. But wait, they still have the old address on file, so I’ll never see it. What to do? Well, be prepared to spend some quality time on the phone with their tech support to get it ironed out. It shouldn’t take more than an hour or two of your valuable time, hopefully! And with any luck your website domain name won’t return to the pool to be snapped up by your competitor in the mean-time!
This may all sound fanciful, but we have seen this scenario play out over and over.

Why is your Domain Name Important?
A domain name is a “place holder” for you and your business on the world wide web. It is the “street address” of your business in cyber space, and once you register one, no one can use your domain name as long as you keep the registration in place. Website domain name management is an important way to protect this valuable company asset. If you lose control of your domain name getting it back can be expensive in legal fees and time consuming, without any guarantee of success. Proactive website domain name management is the answer.
How Do I Choose a Domain Name?
Let’s say your company is “Dolls and More”. If no one has registered “www.dollsandmore.com”, you can register that domain name, and it will be all yours as long as you choose to keep it current. But what happens if “www.dollsandmore.com” is already taken? You (and we) can look for options to the name, such as:
One way or another, we’ll work with you to set up a domain name suited to your needs. And we can host it on our secure servers in our Network Operations Center.
My Site Needs To Be Secure Also
Search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo are increasingly favoring web sites that use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption to protect data transfer. This is true even if your site is not involved in credit card transactions or other sensitive data transfers. So it’s well worth considering getting an SSL Certificate for your domain name. Depending on the level of verification of your business, SSL certificates can be inexpensive. All protect the actual data being transferred, in both directions.
Talk to us at 508-476-3200 about getting your site secure. We can provide the certificate, renew expiring ones, and install them on our servers for a low cost.
