Choosing a domain name registrar.

Update: I've unintentionally set this subject aside for a little while, which has been an excuse not to more actively pursue my goal of moving WikiLearn. Therefore, I'm going to set this aside intentionally for a while, and try to move forward with a trial installation of the latest beta (hopefully the thing that will become the real Beijing release), first on a new (different) server at home, then on a web hosting site perhaps Eryxima. After I get a working TWiki on a Web hosting site, then I'll revisit this topic. Before I leave, I will record a few other URLs I may want to revisit when I "reactivate" this topic.

Summary

Stream of Consciousness

First thought -- choose the least expensive. (I see some that claim to charge only $8.95 per year.)

Other thougts -- there are some free possibilities:

  • Free domain name in exchange for a banner ad on your page(s??) For example:

  • Some organizations offer free or inexpensive sub-domains within their domain (like yourdomain.webhostprovider.com (made up)).
    • uni.cc is an example of a free provider, and they have a helpful faq -- hmm, is cc one of the new ICANN top level domains -- why do they use a numerical IP in their URL? -- PS: It sounds like they provide a free (??) 2 MB website.

Some Other Useful Links

  • An FAQ from one web provider (not all answers are universally correct): http://www.registerfree.com/faq/ -- this site says a domain name can be 63 characters (before the top level, e.g. .com) and that you don't need to have a web site to (reserve | protect | register ) a domain name. (Thus, no need for parking if they are correct.)
