DOMAIN REGISTRATION FEATURES

WHOIS Domain Privacy

WHOIS PRIVACY PROTECTION

Everyone registering a domain name will have their name, address, phone number, and email address published in the public whois database as required by ICANN. You can keep your contact information private with whois privacy.

Domain Transfer Lock

DOMAIN TRANSFER LOCK

You can lock and unlock your domain in our customer control panel at any time.  Locking your domain protects it against unauthorized transfer (“hijacking”) attempts. Transfers are not allowed when you have your domain locked.

40 Day Domain Rescue

40 DAY DOMAIN RESCUE

If your domain name expires for any reason you have up to 30 days to get it back and pay nothing more than the renewal fee. Depending on the domain extension and registry policies you may be able to renew for just the renewal fee for up to 40 days.

Domain Forwarding

DOMAIN FORWARDING

Option to forward your domain to another domain with the domain name being forwarded to showing in the web browser address bar.  Can also redirect to a domain where your domain name is the one shown in the web browser address bar.

Free DNS Service

FREE DNS SERVICE

DNS service included free.  You manage DNS for your domain in our easy to use control panel.  Turn the service on or off and create and update DNS records as needed.

Domain Renewal

DOMAIN RENEWAL

Your domain will auto-renew by default unless you turn auto-renew off. Auto-renewal will renew your domain before it expires. This keeps you from having to remember when your domain needs renewed and letting is expire accidentally.

CHOOSE YOUR BEST DOMAIN NAME

Keep it Short and Simple

A domain name can be as long as 63 characters. Keep it short as makes sense and as simple as possible.  This will make it easier to type in and for you to provide to others. Imagine giving someone your email address with a domain name that is 63 characters long!

Make it relevant

Keep it relevant. Could be or include your company name, organization name, or brand name. You could include your city, state, or keywords if relevant.

Find inspiration

Do web searches for similar websites to get ideas of what others use for their domain names. This should give you some ideas for your domain name. It can give you ideas for variations too if the domain name you prefer isn’t available.

FAQ AND SUPPORT FOR DOMAIN NAMES

The company you buy your domain from or renew your domain through is a domain provider.  InfoQuest has been a domain provider for over 20 years!

InfoQuest is a domain provider. We resell domains through Tucows which has been an ICANN accredited domain registrar since 1999 and they manage the registering of domains.

We offer .com, .net, .org, .us, .biz, .info, .co, .name, .mobi, .tel, .me, .tv, .co.uk, and .cc.

Yes you can! You can register a domain for future use or to use with another service like email.  You can buy a domain from InfoQuest and use it with a service you already have providing they support using your own domain name.

A domain must meet these requirements before it can be transferred to InfoQuest.

  • The domain's administrative contact email address must be valid so you can approve the transfer.
  • The domain must be at least 60 days old.  This is an ICANN requirement for all domains regardless of the domain provider.
  • The domain can't be expired.
  • The domain needs unlocked and you need your authorization code.

Follow these steps for a smooth transfer of your domain to InfoQuest.  If you need assistance let us help you.

  1. Unlock your domain and get the authorization code
  2. Submit your domain transfer order at the top of this page.
  3. When you get the email to approve the transfer it will have a link.  Open this link in a web browser. Provide the authorization code and approve the transfer.
  4. Wait for the the current domain provider to approve or deny the transfer. Once approved it can take up to 7 days for the domain transfer to complete.

You can renew your domain using the customer control panel or by contacting InfoQuest.

Domains ordered through InfoQuest "auto-renew".  You can turn this feature on or off in the customer control panel.

The person or company that purchases or is registering a domain is the registrant and domain owner.

A domain extension is sometimes called a TLD which stands for Top Level Domain.  The .com of www.infoquest.com is the TLD.

An authorization code is required when transferring a domains.

If you are transferring a domain to InfoQuest you can get the authorization code (aka Auth Code or EPP Key) from whoever your domain is currently registered through.

The auth code for domains registered through InfoQuest can be found in the customer control panel.

A WHOIS (who is?) lookup will provide contact information and other technical details for a domain. If the domain owner uses whois privacy you will find details on the service they are using and an email address that forwards to the domain owner.

For most domains you can perform at WHOIS lookup at: WHOIS LOOKUP

Some types of domains may require you to go to the site of the organization responsible for that type of domain.

For domains registered through InfoQuest, the domain registration agreement can be found here.

Whois privacy is a must to keep your information private. Especially important for anyone using their domain for a blog, service area business or other type of business out of their home. If you have an office or storefront we recommend either using whois privacy or make sure to use your business address and contact information when registering your domain.
