A domain name is the key to having your own unique identity on the Internet. It helps visitors find your site, remember the address so they can come back or tell others, and you get to use it for your email addresses as well. If you are running or promoting a business with your web site a domain name is an absolute necessity, but even a small personal web site can benefit.
For Virtual Hosting, a domain name is required. If you do not need a full hosting account, it can still be advantageous to get your own domain. See Parking & Forwarding below for other great domain uses.
Price: $20.00 per year
You want to claim the rights to your name on the Internet, but do not need a full web site to go with it? Maybe you want a web site, but aren't quite ready to start posting pages? Or perhaps you just want to have a customized email address? Parking is your solution!
When you register and park a domain, you reserve your name so that no one else can use it. You receive a default "under construction" web site, and unlimited email aliases -- email sent to addresses within your new domain will forward to other email addresses of your choice.
Price: $10.00 (one time fee)
Domain Forwarding is much like Domain Parking, but instead of the "under construction" page, visitors will be automatically redirected to another web site. This is a good option if you already have a web site, but want a second domain name to also lead to that site. Another use is to have a unique domain & email address, but still host your web site with a "free" hosting provider such as Geocities or if you already get some web space with your Internet access provider, but do not like their long URLs and/or domain name.
