Domain Name Benefits
Domain Name SelectionMake it
Domain Name System (DNS), an Internet protocol and distributed database, provides the mapping between domain address and IP address: domain.domain.com -> x.x.x.x, where x is a byte (0..255). The last portion of a host name, such as .com, is the top-level domain to which the host belongs. In addition to the .com domain, there are six other top-level domains assigned by InterNIC, the coordinating body for Internet name services.
In 1992, Network Solutions, Inc. (NSI) was granted an exclusive contract by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to be the sole registrar for .com, .net and .org Top Level Domain (TLD) names. NSI also maintained the central database of assigned names called WHOIS.
In 1997, the U.S. Department Of Commerce along with the Clinton Administration dismantled NSI's monopoly and mandated the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a nonprofit organization, to create and implement plans for an open, competitive market for registrations of .com, .net and .org domain names.
Today, accredited ICANN registrars can register and renew existing .com, .net and .org domain names, performing the same functions as NSI. Tucows is one of those accredited registrars.
Dew Designs registers Domain Names via Tucows as well as via CORE.
CORE is a registrar accredited by the ICANN. CORE evolved from a rigorous
process of global consensus, launched by the Internet Society (ISOC) and the
Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) in the fall of 1996, to plan for
the end of the monopoly status enjoyed by Network Solutions, Inc.,
as registry and registrar for .com, .net and .org. For the first time, Internet
users everywhere would be able to shop for the best service and competitive
prices, rather than being limited to dealing with a single, for-profit registry.
The old system was ill-prepared to administer the Domain Name System (DNS) when the Internet burgeoned from its infancy as primarily an academic- and research-oriented tool to a powerful medium for business and personal communications. Users grew increasingly frustrated at the delays, mistakes, lack of service and rigid pricing structure they encountered when trying to register new addresses on the Internet through a monopoly.
Beginning January 15, 2000, each registrar has the flexibility to offer initial and renewal registrations in one-year increments, with a total registration period limit of ten years.
Due to this fact, with Dew
Designs, you can register your domain name for
$15.95 per year for up to 10 years. You can also transfer your existing
domain name to us in order to pay less each year ($35 -> $15.95).
