Free privacy protection, forever
Domains managed through HostSprite include free privacy protection for most domain extensions. Unfortunately, some extensions are not eligible to ICAAN rules.
With Privacy Protection our system replaces your personal information with our proxy info in the public WHOIS directory. Additionally, we prevent spam from emails for domain inquiries.
If you want even more protection you can choose to enhance your domain protection even further with our Full and Ultimate Domain Protection. Get safeguards against domain hijackers and honest mistakes such as accidental domain expiration or transfers. You also get protected from unauthorized access.
Each and every domain name comes with all you need to get online!
Domain Forwarding and Masking: Direct any domain name you own to your website. Anyone who types that domain name into their browser is taken directly to your website.
Domain Locking: Domain locking prevents accidental or intentional transfers of domain ownership and stops anyone from redirecting your nameservers.
Total DNS Control: Manage your domain nameserver (DNS) records and set your email, FTP, sub-domains and website location all from one control panel.
Change of Registration: Assign your domain name to someone else or change the contacts for your domain online anytime.
Status Alerts: Monitor the status of your domain and get instant alerts if there’s been a change.
Auto Renew Protection: No need to watch expiration dates to make sure you renew on time! Auto renew keeps your domains, hosting, website builders, and other products in your name and under your control.
Domain Disclaimers: Special savings apply only to the first year of registration. You must purchase the entire section to qualify for the special savings. The final price may differ because of additional sales, fees, and promotions. Products will automatically renew until cancelled. You may turn off the auto-renewal feature by visiting your account. Change of registration may require a fee for certain domain types. Domain fees exclude taxes & ICANN fees.
A domain name is what people type into a browser to find a website – similar to how you use a street address to find a building. Every website, server, or digital device that is connected to the Internet has an assigned IP address that you can use to see or visit it. This IP address is a long string of numbers and letters that would be very difficult for people to memorize, so a domain name is simply a human-friendly version of that IP address.
When you type a domain name – like www.hostsprite.com or www.google.com – into your browser, the domain name system, or DNS, takes this domain and translates it into its IP address, allowing the associated website to be found.
In this sense, HostSprite can help you find a domain name that best suits your business so you can easily promote your website.
Having your own domain name can help you appear more legitimate to people who search for you or your business online. With a domain name, you can:
Simply enter the web address you want to register into the search box. If the name you entered has already been registered, we’ll provide suggestions of alternative names. If the domain is available, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the registration process.
Domain name registration is the process of finding a web address (like HostSprite.com or zipsurance.com), and then signing up to use it. You technically don’t own the domain, but once you’ve registered it, it’s yours alone for as long as you continue paying the annual registration fee.
How long your domain registration lasts can vary depending on the domain you purchase. Many domain name registrars will allow customers to register domains for 10 years at a time, but typically customers will register domains for one to three years.
If you want to extend your registration, it’s easy to renew your domain with HostSprite. You can choose to manually renew or set up auto-renewal, so you ensure it stays registered to you.
When searching for a good domain name, keep these 4 things in mind:
Reflect your brand. Ideally, your domain name should be your business name, since that’s how customers will think of you.
Keep it short. Shorter domain names are easier for customers to remember.
Avoid numbers or hyphens. Customers might not remember to include hyphens, and if they hear your web address with a number, they won’t know if you’re using the numeral 5 or “five” spelled out. If your business name has a number in it, register both versions – with the number and with the number spelled out.
Register more than one domain. Keep your name safe by registering both common misspellings, as well as various domain extensions, such as .org, .net, .info, etc.
