A domain name is an address in the cyberspace. It is your custom name on the Internet. It allows Domain Name System (DNS) computers to identify your website when Internet users are searching for it. An example of a domain name is:
"Yourdomain.cc". Each .CC domain name is unique and there will not be duplication.
.CC is a premium, international top-level domain (TLD) that works worldwide on the internet just like .com, .net and .org. ALL DNS, domain name servers, in the world recognize .CC, just like .com. Country codes were assigned by the
International Standards Organization (ISO), and then some of these were adopted by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) for use as a global Top Level Domains. .CC is the country code for the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, a
distinct political entity that is administered by Australia. However, the .CC TLD is administered in the United States and managed by an American Company.
.BIZ is the world's first Internet-based environment dedicated to the business community. .BIZ gives you the opportunity to get the best business name, expand your online presence and protect your company name, brand name or trademark.
.INFO is for businesses and individuals. .INFO is where people go for information. It's ideal for sharing knowledge on issues and ideas and for providing information on products or services in an easy-to-remember way.
.COM/.NET/.ORG is the first generic top-level domain in the Internet world and also the most favorite gTLD using by the Internet user nowadays.
An URL (Uniform Resource Locator) identifies your computer's location on the Internet. It is your full domain name. An example of a URL is http://www.yourdomain.cc.
As the registrant, you have the exclusive right to use your domain name for a specific period of time. (Registrant is the person or organization) You as the registrant have the control over the domain as per the terms and conditions
of the Registration Agreement.
By registering a domain name with us, you not only get the domain name you want. You also entitled our value added services and products include Free website design, Free URL forwarding, Free e-mail forwarding, Free sub-domain, Free
DNS Hosting and Free under construction page.
The cost of a domain name depends on the length of time a domain name is registered for or term of registration. You are not necessarily lost your domain after the term expires. You have the right to renew your domain and select another
term, if desired.
To determine the availability of the domain name, you have to access the WHOIS function. Enter the domain name in the text box on that page, the system will normally inform you of its availability and give you an opportunity to search
for other available names.
Letters and numbers are always valid characters in a Domain name. Hyphens may also be used in Web Address, but may not begin nor end your Domain name. Spaces and special characters, such as question marks (?), exclamation points (!),
and underscores (_) are never permitted in Domain names. A domain name can be between 2 and 47 Romanise characters long.
The password will enable you to modify your account. Passwords will be emailed to you after full payment has been received for the domain name. You can access to the account with the password. You need to access to the DNS function
where you can choose other sub-functions such as modifying your URL forwarding, setting your domain name servers, modifying your email contact, or modifying your password. All changes will take up to 24 hours to processed.
It is very important that you keep your registration contact information current. You can refer to the question “What can I do with my password?”
You will be notified via email to renew your domain name. You can also login to our website to renew your domain name.
E-mail forwarding is normally offered for all paid domain names. For e-mail forwarding to work you must have a pre-existing e-mail account such as (email@example.com). We will then forward any e-mail that is addressed to (firstname.lastname@example.org)
to (email@example.com). It does not matter what you have before the @ symbol, it will all be forwarded to your pre-existing e-mail account and there is no extra setup that must be done.
If you do not indicate where you would like to forward the domain to a specific host server, it will normally be "parked" at a server for you. The domain will remain on these servers until you forward them to somewhere else. If someone
tries to access the domain, an "Under Construction" page will appear on the screen. Once you have found a host for your website, the hosting company will be able to transfer your domain to their server.
Multilingual domain is ONLY available to .cc which has been recognized as First working multilingual domain in the world with no extra software download needed. You may register a domain in your preferred language, be it Chinese, Korea,
Japanese, Latin and Hebrew.
No. Other than multilingual browser support (already in place for most users interested in multilingual surfing), there is no software, products or cost associated with viewing a multilingual site.
No. When you register a Chinese .cc domain name in either Big5 or GB encoding, the domain name is automatically registered in both Big5 and GB encoding. Therefore, you need not register the same domain name in the other encoding.
RACE Encoding is the system used to translate languages into a common format that is easier for computers to store. It is represented as a string of numbers, letters, and dashes. All multilingual domains will be stored in this format
for use in Internet computers and systems.
No, not unless the trademark or the famous name is owned by you in the first place. Please consult with an attorney regarding such matters.
All domain sales are FINAL. This is stated on the Order Page, as well as throughout the Policies. We simply cannot be any clearer than this. If you have questions about whether or not you really want to register a domain, then please
DO NOT BUY THE DOMAIN UNTIL YOU HAVE FULLY MADE UP YOUR MIND TO DO SO. It is simply not in the best interest of the Internet for people to register a name one-day, and then decide the next day that they don't want it. This is unfair
to other people who may have wanted the name. Buying a domain is serious business. PLEASE DO NOT BUY A DOMAIN FROM US UNLESS YOU HAVE CAREFULLY CONSIDERED YOUR PURCHASE. We are not responsible for BUYER'S REMORSE, or any other
excuse that you may come up with. Again, ALL DOMAIN SALES ARE FINAL.
We are not responsible for your typographical errors. We are not responsible for information that you enter in incorrectly, regardless of the reason. PLEASE double and triple check the spelling of the domain(s) you are registering.
We cannot correct misspelled domains; if you want the correct spelling, you will have to purchase it at regular price (assuming that it is available).
