Frequently Asked Questions
Do I own the domain name?
Yes, the domain is your property and is always registered in your name, or, if you’re working on someone’s behalf, your customer’s name.
How do domain names work?
Every site is hosted on an internet web server, or a “host”. Computers access these hosts using an IP – a string of numbers like 22.214.171.124 – but that’s not very memorable for human beings.
A Domain Name converts an IP address to a more memorable, text-based version so that people don’t need to punch in a huge string of numbers to find the websites they want. This is all done through the Domain Name System – more commonly known as DNS.
Think of your domains like web addresses – the place people will find you online.
What is a domain extension?
An extension is the ending of a Domain Name. Extensions are commonly referred to as a TLD (Top-Level Domain), suffix, or domain root.
There are many types of TLDs such as ccTLDs, which are country code specific, like .uk for the UK, and gTLDs, which are new generic extensions such as .website.
Some of the most popular TLDs include .com, .org, .net and .biz.
Many businesses and brands register their name with multiple extensions to protect their online identity, increase visibility and attract more visitors to their website.
Some of the most popular extension types are Geographic and International domains.
Geographic domains are perfect for local businesses and organisations. They tell people in which city or region a shop, a restaurant or an agency is located. Extensions like .london, .vegas, .berlin and .tokyo are a great choice for attracting local customers.
International domains are the ideal choice for brands looking to promote their local presence and connect with customers from a specific country. Depending on which market or country you wish to target, you can go with an established international domain like .de, .es, .it or with the new .uk or .global.
What are the new gTLDs?
gTLD stands for generic Top-Level Domain. It’s a category of extensions that are alternatives to the traditional .com, .co.uk and .de domain roots.
Also called ‘new gTLDs’ or ‘nTLDs’, these are just a few of the hundreds of new names to search for that have been released recently for businesses and individuals to use.
These gTLDs vary from practical extensions such as .web or .tech, to location-based ones such as .london or .wales, and even catchy extensions such as .ninja or .xyz.
What are ccTLDs?
Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs) correspond to a country, territory, or other geographic location.
For example: .uk represents the United Kingdom, .de is for Germany, .mx for Mexico and .ch is used for Switzerland.
The rules for registering ccTLDs vary significantly depending on the extension. Some ccTLDs such as .de have residency restrictions, meaning that registrants are required to be located in the country of the domain extension they want to use.
However, many of the ccTLDs can be registered by anyone without any restrictions, including .uk, .ch, .es and several more.
Can I sell my domain to another person?
You can either sell it yourself, or use our Sell This Domain feature in the Domain Control Panel.
Can I transfer domain names at any time?
Your Control Panel gives you the ability to transfer most domain names at any time, whether to another Papa Internet account or to another company. Some domain name extensions will have a 60 day period where you cannot transfer in or out. We will never charge you for transferring out, as we think our domain hosting is so feature-filled that you won’t want to transfer out.
Can I use my domain just for an email address?
Sure you can. You can set up as many email forwards as you need in your Domain Control Panel, where emails sent to that domain will be forwarded to another account. You can also purchase an email account to have your own mailbox on our servers.
How do I renew my domains with Papa Internet?
Your domains will renewed if you give us a go ahead. You will receive a 30 days’ notice when your domain is coming up for renewal with a link to make a payment, so make sure your email address is valid and working in order to receive the notice.
How can I pay for my domain names and do I get an invoice?
You can pay using a credit/debit card or Domain Credits. We do not accept cheque, postal orders, standing orders, or cash. You will automatically receive an invoice by email and you can view and print your invoices at any time through your Papa Internet Customer Area.
