    What is a domain name, or URL?

    A domain name is also called the URL or web site address. This is the unique name that your customers will type into a browser to access your web site information. No other person or company will have the same address as you.

    URL is an acronym that stands for Uniform Resource Locator. Technically, a URL is an addressing construct used for identifying and locating computers on the Internet. While computers use Internet Protocol (IP) numbers to locate each other on the Internet, people find them hard to remember. Therefore, Web Addresses were developed to permit the use of easily remembered words and phrases to identify Internet addresses. For example, the web address dyntex.com represents the company Dyntex. When you type dyntex.com in a web browser or send e-mail to someone at dyntex.com, the Domain Name System (DNS) translates dyntex.com into the IP numbers used by the Internet and connects you to Dyntex.


    Think of it as a networked extension of the standard filename concept: not only can you point to a file in a directory, but that file and that directory can exist on any machine on the network, can be served via any of several different methods, and might not even be something as simple as a file: URLs can also point to queries, documents stored deep within databases, the results of a finger or archie command, or a myriad of other items.

      2. 30 days until domain registration term expires - A reminder email is sent to all designated domain contacts with renewal instructions.
      3. 15 days until domain registration term expires - An email is sent to all designated domain contacts with renewal instructions.
      4. Domain registration term expiration date - An email is sent to all designated domain contacts with final renewal instructions.
      5. 15 days after domain registration expiration date - The domain is placed on Registrar Hold Status (the domain no longer appears in the TLD zone files and cannot be transfered). Customers must contact Dyntex to renew the domain. An additional charge of $25 will be levied.
      6. 40 days after domain registration expiration date - The domain is deleted.

    * As per our Domain Registration Agreement, domain contacts are responsible for maintaining current contact information.

    Back to top


    Is my domain contact information available to the public?

    What is the Dyntex username used for?

    This is a quick and easy way for you to be able to complete the registration form without typing your contact information multiple times. If you will be registering multiple domains in the future, you will be able to use your username again and again. A password is set at the same time as your Dyntex username; these two pieces of information used together identify you as the Registrant of all of your domains and allow you to manage your account. Dyntex recommends that you use your email address as your username in order to be able to remember it easily.

    I forgot my username, how do I retrieve it?

    I am required to provide DNS information during the domain registration process. What is the DNS information used for?

    Every registrant provides DNS information for each domain registered. This information refers to the server that will answer for your domain. You will need to contact the company that will host your web site to get this information.

    Back to top


    Is it possible for another company to register my domain name after I have registered it?

    If you have registered a domain with Dyntex and receive an electronic confirmation, your domain cannot be used by anyone else. The only time that another entity can register your domain name is if the name is not renewed before the expiration date. Name availability is verified by through the SRS (Shared Registration System). This system prevents a domain name that is successfully registered through Dyntex from being registered through another domain name registration site.
