Frequently Asked Questions - Domain Name Registration
Is $14.95 the only fee we have to pay?

How long does it take for my domain name to become registered once I have submitted it to the system?
The registration process should not take more than a few minutes from the submission of the online registration.
If I register my domain name on the Web 66 Web Site, am I the sole owner of the domain?
Yes - the domain is registered to the owner indicated that on the registration template.
Can I pay by check?
Yes, but your domain will NOT be registered until payment is received. The registration process is on a prepayment system as dictated by Internic.
Can I use the same user id for multiple domains?
Yes. You can use the same username/password combination. But please note that your domain registration username/password combination is different from your Web 66 hosting username/password combination.

How do I change my domain name?
Sorry, once a domain name is registered, the name cannot be changed.
How do I modify my domain information that is contained on the Domain Server?
Use your user id and password to log on to the Web 66 domain management site, and follow the instructions.
What is a domain name?
A domain name tells people (and the computers they use) how to find your homepage and send you E-Mail on the Internet. Each domain name is assigned to a numerical IP (Internet Protocol) address by your host provider. Since people remember names better than numbers, the domain name translates this number into words. For example, the Web 66 IP address is 188.8.131.52, and our domain name is web66.com. The domain name is a lot easier to remember.
Once I have a domain name secured, how long may I use it?
If there are no trademark disputes, your secured domain name will be yours for as long as you maintain the yearly registration fees.
What are the valid characters for a domain name and how long can it be?
The only valid characters for a domain name are letters, numbers and a hyphen "-". Other special characters like the underscore "_" or an exclamation mark "!" are NOT permitted.
Example: your name.com (not
correct, No spaces allowed)
A domain name can be up to 67 characters long -- including the 4 characters used to identify the Top Level Domain (.NET, .COM, or .ORG). Do not type the www. before your domain name when registering
What does it mean to "park" a domain name?
In order for you to register a domain name you need a Domain Name System (DNS) server to host it. When you register a domain name with Web66.com, we are hosting your domain name on our DNS. We are holding or "parking" the domain name for you. You have the option to move your domain name off of our servers to another Internet Service Provider (ISP) or host provider at any time.
I have an E-Mail which says that my domain has been registered, but it is not available on the Internet. Why?
When you receive the E-Mail confirming the registration of your new domain, there are many more steps still to be done behind the scenes. Your domain will be entered into the global WHOIS database, and your registration must travel to all the ISPs in the world. It will be a few more minutes after you receive the confirmation E-Mail before you will be able to use your domain name on the Internet.
