In 2004 A Better Computer, Inc., began selling domain registrations.
One challenge to being a systems engineer is that they tend to be very specific about terminology. (If you ask an engineer “What time is it?” not only will he start his answer with “I have reason to believe the time is…” you may also have to listen to a lecture about how watches and clocks work and their varying degrees of accuracy.)
DOMAINS: You do not actually buy a domain. You register it for a year or more. But that’s OK: if you totally control it then you effectively own it.
The way this works is this:
- Create an account (that part is free). You can just shop for a domain name without an account, but you’re going to need an account if you want to register it.
- Search for a domain name – in the last couple of years the number of domain name extensions have grown. In addition the the usual .com, .net and .org, there is .website, .club, .name – I have counted them but there are several dozen!
- Pay for at least one year. You can use a credit card or Paypal. You can pay for up to 10 years, but I don’t recommend that you pay for more than 1-2 the first time you register.
- Do purchase the optional Privacy Protection!
