In order to build and to maintain a website you will need to register your domain name as that is the first step involved in the process and it is extremely important in the sense that it can make or break a website’s success. It is important to note that it is impossible to fix any mistake made during registration, so that is why you should be particularly careful when registering your domain name. So that is why it is important to stick to your domain name after you have registered it otherwise the only plausible option is to go for domain forwarding; but it is better not to get there in the first place.
There are many things which you need to keep in mind when you are thinking about domain registration and one of the major decisions which you need to take when it comes to domain registrations is whether you want to have a business domain registration or a private registration because this question will be asked by the registrar at the time of checkout.
Private registrations is actually a service wherein all the information provided by you will be kept private and this information (with the exception of your payment details ) will not be viewable to the public in free databases like WHOis. By opting for private registrations, you will not have to worry about getting disturbed by annoying marketers who retrieve your personal details like email address, mailing address, phone number, etc from the WHOis database. What’s more you will also be protected from the evil clutches of predators, competitors and lawyers who utilize your information for unethical purposes. So why not opt for this type of registration? It is not that costly (USD 8-10) only and this price can be further reduced by using a valid coupon code.
Business registration on the other hand is everything that private registration isn’t. While the main purpose of private registration is to conceal one’s registration details, the primary motive of getting a business registration is to promote one’s details. In the event of selection of business registration, your DNS records as well as your domain will be placed into a business WHOis database and these details would be picked up by different business directories through the internet.
By opting for business registration you will be able to provide immediate exposure to your business because your business details would be placed in a database which is open for all to view, including your competitors as well as clients.
So depending on your needs and preferences you can take a pick from among the two.
