Get Started Guide

This Guide provides you with basic information about what a domain name is, how you can register a domain name with Batoi, transfer a domain name from another registrar to Batoi and related information of interest.


A domain name for example 'batoi.com' is a name based identifier for internet resources. The domain name is available with a Top Level Extension like '.com', '.net' etc., which is called TLD (Top Level Domain). The domain naming process is hierarchical and it goes from right to left. The right most string of text after the dot is the TLD. In many cases, the second from the right is generic and are considered as the part of the domain name extension like '.co.in' or '.com.mx'. The consequent portion after the dot is the unique name that a user can purchase under a TLD.

How do I register a domain name?

To register a domain name, you must complete the following steps:

  1. Choose the top-level domain (extension) and your second-level domain.
  2. Check the availability of your choice of domain name.
  3. Decide on the duration of registration.
  4. Complete the registration process, including payment.

How to choose a domain name?

While selecting a domain name, you should consider:

  1. Sticking with '.com'. It is by far the most widely accepted extension for a domain name and is also the easiest to remember.
  2. Keeping it simple, short, singular, keyword rich and without any hyphens.
  3. The domain name should say something about yourself, your organization or your business.
  4. Other extensions. If you find the perfect domain name ending in .com, it is a good idea to consider other extensions (like .net, .org, .info, .in, etc.) as you can park these domains to point to your '.com' domain name to drive the visitors to your website who may just happen to type in a different extension. In addition, it also helps protect your website in case someone tries to purchase another extension of your domain.

Check the availability of your choice of domain name.

You can check the availability of the name you have chosen by logging in to the Service Dashboard for domains. You do this by searching your desired domain name to see if it is available. You can search across many TLDs-both generic and country specific to see whether the domain name you want to register is available in any or all TLDs.

Decide on the duration of registration.

Once you have chosen your domain name, you can decide to register a domain name from 1 to 10 years. To start with, you can make an initial registration for one year, and, if you find you are indeed using the domain name, then you can renew it for a longer period.

Complete the registration process, including payment.

Once you choose a domain name and decide for how many years you would like to register it, it is time to register it.

  1. Visit the Service Dashboard for domains and type your desired domain name in the search box.
  2. Click the Search button.
  3. Select a term (1 to 10 years) and click on the Add to Cart button. You may purchase domain names with alternate TLDs or register another domain name by using the search box on the page.
  4. Once you have chosen all the domain names you wish to register, click Checkout to provide your personal information and payment to complete your order.

Once you have successfully completed the registration process, you become the registrant of your new domain name(s).

Once the domain name is registered to ensure that registrant data is correct, you will receive an email from Batoi. You must click the validation link in the email, within 15 days. Failure to verify the Registrant contact email address will lead to deactivation of the domain name and once deactivated, the domain name will not function until the email address is verified.
