Your domain name is your
"www." name. It is your business's or
organization's home on the Internet. Here is a
paragraph of Internet
history you might find
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and
Numbers, ICANN, manages domain names and
Internet Registries. Until late 1998 these
and other Internet related tasks were performed
by other organizations on behalf of the United
States government. Before the
establishment of ICANN the US government
controlled the Internet domain name system.
There are many domain registries where one can
reserve their domain name. Some are huge
and some are small. Mark registers domains
through his registry at
The cost for registering a domain name is all
over the board, ranging from about $6.00 per
year to over $34.00 per year depending on what
the particular registry charges. At
www.icugrodomains.com Mark charges pretty much in the middle of
Why would you want to register a domain name
with ICUgro domains and not with the $6.00 registry?
The answer is service that could keep you from
losing your domain name or paying a bundle to
get it back. How does that work?
All domain registries are automated. When
you sign up for a domain account you give them
an e-mail address. When the time comes for
your domain name to be renewed you get an e-mail
telling you that it is time to renew. But
what if you have changed your e-mail address and
did not update it in your domain account?
Or what if you simply delete the message because
you didn't know what it was?
This scenario is why you want to register your
domain name through ICUgro Inc. If you are
an ICUgro Inc. design and hosting client, your domain name
is monitored for renewal to make sure
it is not accidentally lost. If you forget
to renew your domain name when it is due it
could go into a period called "recovery" or
"redemption", and most companies charge upwards
of $150 to renew a domain name in redemption.
Mark doesn't want that to happen.
