Is there any special rule for registering a domain?
Each domain extension has its own. To see the rules and regulations for each domain extansion, please consult the page of the extension you are interested in on the "Domains" section of the Nominalia website.
What are the DNS?
DNS means Domain Name Service and it is a specific code system that allows to transform a domain name into an IP numeric address: it is the mean through which it is possible to identify the machine that specific registered domain refers to on the Internet.
What is a domain?
A domain is the name which uniquely identifies a person, company or organizzation on the Internet.
For example, our domain is "nominalia.com". The domain is made up of two parts separated by a period. The first part is the real name, while the second is an extension which can indicate the type of activity or geographical area. For example: .es stands for Spain, .de for Germany, .com for commercial activities, etc.
Whom does a domain belong to?
A domain name does not belong to anyone, but it appears as owner the natural or legal person who made the application for registration.
How do I choose the right domain name for my business?
Choosing one's domain name is not as simple as it seems!
Remember that your domain name represents your identity on the Internet, a sort of business card for the web and once you have registered a name, you cannot change it unless you buy a new domain with a different name.
In general, we advice you to register simple names which are both easy to remember and easy to type into the browser navigational bar, as well as made up of only letters (no numbers) and with a meaning associated to the content of your site or of your activity. If you intend to use your domain for work, avoid over-fantastic names which only seem pleasant.
These are some characteristics to consider in the selection of a domain name:
- You can only use alphanumerical characters from the English alphabet and the "-" (dash)
- You cannot begin or end in a "-" (dash), nor have it in third or fourth position
- An Italian citizen in possession of only a fiscal code (codice fiscale) can register an unlimited number of .es .com, .org, .biz, .info, .net domains
During the purchase, I have to input some information. Who are Owner, Admin-c and Billing-c of a domain, and what is the difference between them?
Billing means "invoice" and Billing-c (or Billing Contact) means "invoice contact". This is the person we issue all invoices to, the person who made the payment. Our client is, therefore, the Billing-c, and it is identified mainly by two codes, the userID (e.g. XXXX-EURO)and the password they use to access their control panel.
Owner is the assignee of the domain. This is an important field for our resellers, because they purchase domains for their customers and they input customer information in the Owner area.
Admin-c means "Administrative contact" and is the person who manages the domain. This field is important for that resellers, because they use to manage the domain on behalf of their own customers.
What is the Registration Authority?
The RA is a national or international organisation responsible for establishing rules and procedures for the allocation of domain names, the management of the registers and of the primary nameserver for the different TLD.
