Domain Names - Information
Can people find out where I live based on my domain name registration?
Yes, unless you choose to order private domain registration, called ID Protection.
Should I pay for private domain registration services for my domain?
If you are worried about your personal domain registration information being available to anyone that wants it, yes.
Choosing a domain name
How do I decide which domain name to register?
The shorter the domain, the better. There is a higher likelihood that the domain you want is available with a second-level extension.
With more than 80 million .com’s registered, there is a lot of competition to find the names you want. Selecting a second level .com domain extension gives you a lot of flexibility – take advantage of the recognition of a .com, find the name you want and connect your site with ausing the most widely recognizable .com domain extension.
Further your brand's reach
If you own a company that does business abroad, use international domains to further your brand's reach. By registering a German domain for your business, for example, you can make your company seem less foreign to Germans and reduce cultural barriers. Move ahead of the competition. Be the first in your industry to have a German Internet presence.
