There are people on the web who are always trying to steal your domains and personal details
As soon as you register with Hoster Buddy or any other registrar, your personal information is displayed in a public directory. Hackers and spammers often use this to compile email lists and steal domains. Harsh, but true.
When you add Privacy Protection to your domains:
You may sleep better knowing your personal information isn’t on display to the whole world.
Let’s say you forget to renew your domain. Or you change the email address on your Hoster Buddy account. This is all it takes for someone to step in and transfer your domain name away without your permission.
But put Business Protection to work on your most important domain names and they’ll be safe for up to 12 months.
What’s a domain name?
Domain names are created to make IP addresses easy to remember. Every computer has an IP address assigned to it – much like a street address. But instead of having to memorize each IP address number, we assign domain names to these numbers so we can easily remember them. The domain name system, or DNS, takes domain names and translates them into their IP addresses so that computers can communicate with one another.
When you enter a domain name into your web browser, the browser simply uses that domain to locate its corresponding IP address and then shows you the website associated with it. If you own a business, Hoster Buddy can help you find a domain name that best suits the business so you can easily promote your website.
Can I get help in my domain name search?
Absolutely! Our domain name search tool can assist you by offering suggestions and alternatives to any domain you search. If you’re still having issues or just want some guidance, our world-class, support team is available to help lead you towards the best domain name possible for your business or personal use.
What if the domain I want is already taken?
Don’t get discouraged in your domain name search if what you’re looking for is already taken. We have a couple of ways for dealing with such a situation. You can try our Domain Broker Service, where we negotiate acquiring the domain from its current owner. We also offer a Domain Backorder service, where you purchase a backorder credit to give you a chance to get the domain when it goes into auction.
Can I purchase any domain extension?
A handful of domains will have restrictions on them, which means you can only purchase them if you meet or exceed certain criteria or have authorization (some examples are .gov, .edu and .mil). But most extensions are available to everyone. In fact, most country code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) are available for anyone to purchase, even if you don’t reside in the country code in question.
