Frequently Asked Hosting Questions

What characters can I use in my domain name and how long can it be?

A web address can have up to 26 characters (including the four characters in .com, .net or .org). You may use any combination of letters and numbers, as well as a "dash" (-), as long as you do not begin or end your name with a dash. No special characters (@&(*^$#) are allowed. Please note that there is no need to begin your domain name with "www.".

The different types of domains .com is for commercial organizations. Net is for entities and computers that represent part of the Internet`s infrastructure. .org is for miscellaneous entities that do not fit under any of the other top level domains; typically used for nonprofit organizations. .edu is for four-year, degree-granting colleges and universities. .gov is for agencies and branches of the United States Federal Government.
