   What is a domain_name?
   
  A domain name is the essence of your company's online identity. It is the address your customers use to find information about your products and services on the web. Domain_names allow Internet users to type in a name, such as yourdomain.com, to identify a numeric Internet Protocol (IP) address such as 207.15.12.173. The purpose of domain names is to allow users connected to the Internet the ability to find web sites without having to memorize the long, numerical (IP) addresses that actually locate the computers or servers on the Internet.

   What are the fees to register a domain_name?
   
  HostingCampus.com pricing is a flat $8.50 per year fee. The price includes all fees associated with registering your domain_name including internic fees and parking fees. Two years registration is $16.70. For a large volume of registrations please contact us at registration@HostingCampus.com
   
   
   Why are your fees so low?
   
  HostingCampus.com is one of the fastest growing domain_name_registration services. Our customers are doubling and tripling each month. We are witnessing a tremendous growth in our domain_registrations and domain_transfers. Many of our customers register multiple domain names in all extensions (.com, .net .org) to protect their identity. This higher than usual multiple registration is due to our low prices. We believe that the domain registration should be affordable and no one should charge the exorbitant charges levied by the major companies. As we grow our base grows and our revenue will grow to maintain our low prices hopefully for years to come. Spread the word about us. Our goal is to maintain our low cost, affordable domain name registration prices with no hidden fees.
   
   
   What does it mean to "Register" a domain_name?
   
  There is a central registry of all domain_names on the Internet. For your domain_name to become a part of the registry, your domain name needs to be added to that registry. "Registering" a domain_name means you are associated with that domain_name for the period of the registration. Only ICANN-approved Registrars have access to the database.
   
   
   Who should register a domain_name?
   
  Anyone thinking about establishing a presence on the Internet should register a domain_name. You don't have to utilize it right away, but you can reserve it for your future use. Domains are being registered at the rate of more than 300,000 per month- they go quickly!
   
   
   How long does the registration process take?
   
  The application process should only take a few minutes to complete. All registrations take place in real time- once your application has been processed and approved, your name is registered.
   
   
   Is it possible for someone to register my domain name after I have registered it?
   
  The availability of .com, .net and .org domain_names is verified through a central registry system. This system prevents a domain_name that is successfully registered from being registered by another person or entity. The registration and processing system updates the central registry in real time.
   
   
    What methods of payment does DomainsNext accept?
   
  All major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover.
   
   
   If a domain name is already registered, can I find out who owns the name?
   
  Yes. If you check the availability of a domain_name and it is already registered, click on the box: "Show Registrant Information". This will display the contact information associated with a registered domain_name.
   
   
   Who do I contact for additional assistance?
   
  E-mail us at registrar@HostingCampus.com if you have other questions or need information that is not contained above, click here to send an email to HostingCampus.com customer service.
   
   I've got my domain name, now what?
   
  There are many things you can do with your new domain. Some people want to build a website for their corporate or personal use. If that is the case, you must contact a web design/ h o s t i n g company. Once they have a website ready for you, we can "point" your new domain to that website. Some want custom email, (you@your-new-domain.com, for example). You can enable our email forwarding feature to forward your mail to your primary email account auch as johnsmith@aol.com. Some just want to resell their domain_name. In that case, you may certainly sell your new domain to whomever you like. Simply contact us to transfer the domain_name to your buyer.
   
   
   I own a new domain, but when I type it into my browser, nothing comes up.
   
  Again, a domain_name is not a website, just a web address for a website. If you want your new domain to be a web address for a website for your corporate or personal use, you must contact a web design/ h o s t i n g company. Once they have a website ready for you, we can "point" your new domain to that website. If you already have a website, and registered a new domain for it, be aware that some h o s t i n g companies do not accept a domain pointing to their host site (members.abigisp.com/your-abigisp-site~template1765, for example) Also, it may take a few days for the routing to point to your new host on an acceptable server.
