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.
To register a domain name, you must complete the following steps:
While selecting a domain name, you should consider:
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.
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.
Once you choose a domain name and decide for how many years you would like to register it, it is time to register it.
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.
