Want free DNS management? We’ve got it

A lot of scary words get tossed around when you start creating your first website: SSL certificates, VAT IDs, name servers. And then there are DNS records: Those mysterious things that you know are super important but you just can’t wrap your head around what they are—much less manage them. And worst of all, some companies (we won’t name names!) charge you for it every month.

But you don’t have to be an internet guru to have and manage your own website. Getting online should be easy. That’s why Name.com has free DNS tools that can make all those scary, confusing internet things a little less frightening.

So you have an expiring domain…what now?

Maybe you got that dreaded email. Maybe you noticed it in your account portal. But the truth remains: One of your domains is expiring. What’s a website owner to do?

Renewing your domain before it expires is always a good idea—that way, you don’t have to deal with interrupted web service or risk losing your domain name to another person. Because most domains can only be registered for up to 10 years (and for some, even less), you will periodically need to renew your domains to continue ownership of them. The domain expiration process will vary based on your domain intentions and how proactive you are with renewing them.
