Domain Name Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Answers

What is a domain name?

A domain name is a name used to locate and display a Web site. An example of a domain name is example.com. The top-level domain (TLD), or domain name extension, is the .COM, .NET, .ORG, etc. portion of the domain name.

How much does a domain name cost?

The price of domain names vary per domain name registrar and term. pairLite's domain name registar, pairNIC, offers one to five year domain name registrations for COM, NET, ORG, BIZ, INFO, US, CN, and WS top-level domain names.

The one-year price is $19 for COM, NET, ORG, BIZ, INFO, and US domain names. Discounts can be had when choosing longer terms. CN and WS domain name have their own pricing scheme.
