Before you register your domain name there are a few basic guidelines you may want to consider that can keep your domain name safe and alleviate problems that can occur.
Contact Email Guidelines
When you register a domain you are required to provide an email address. This address is used by the registrar to communicate very important information regarding your domain name.
Billing Contact Information
You will be asked to enter a billing contact. For verification purposes, the name and address information you enter must match the name and address information associated with your credit card.
Lock Your Domain
Always Lock Your Domain Name. Domain registrars will offer an option for LOCKING your domain. This is always good as it keeps others from making any changes to your domain settings that you have not authorized.
