Frequently Asked Questions

 
Why do I need to register a domain name?

Every internet website has a unique numeric ip address of up to 12 digits like 45.56.81.36. You can type in the ip address of any website to display it in your browser. e.g. http://45.56.81.36

The domain name system (DNS) was invented to translate the arcane ip address into a unique memorable domain name like redplug.com. If a website has registered a domain name, you can type it in to display it in your browser. e.g. http://redplug.com

Marketing your website is much easier with a domain name.
