New Domains are coming out every day, making it a great time to register domains for you or your business. But if you want to purchase a domain name that a lot of other people are interested in, you may not want to wait until the domain reaches general availability to buy it—it may be long gone by then and in the clutches of someone else. Luckily, buyers have several opportunities to purchase the domain they’re interested in before it reaches general availability.

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.
Have you ever created a new brand only to find that social media handles of the same name were already taken? Not a fun experience.
If you’re very ambitious, you might check ahead of time to make sure your brand name is available across all platforms.

But we have some good news: There’s a tool that will handle social media branding for you.

Whether your website is a hobby or your primary source of income, email is one of the best ways to communicate with visitors who have questions or comments.

When you set up email forwarding on a Name.com domain, you can create a custom email address for your website that will automatically redirect to your inbox—and it’s FREE!
