What is a domain name? 
Domain names are the familiar, easy to remember names for computers on the Internet (such as onlinemalls.com). They correspond to a series of numbers (called Internet Protocol numbers) that serve as routing addresses on the Internet. Domain names are used generally as a convenient way of locating information and reaching others on the Internet.

What does it mean to "register" a domain name? 
In short, to "register" a domain name is simply to "reserve" a domain name. The Internet domain name system (DNS) consists of a directory, organized hierarchically, of all the domain names and their corresponding computers registered to particular companies and persons using the Internet. When you register a domain name, it will be associated with the computer on the Internet you designate during the period the registration is in effect.

What is the fee for registering a domain name with you?
The current fee for registering a domain name is only $15.00. This fee is discounted compared to Networksolutions.com's and Register.com's current rates! The renewal fee is only $15 per each additional year. Please note that payment must be received first before we can register your domain name. The fee is non-refundable.

Is there any hosting included in my name registration?
Unless if you have already signed up for one of our standard, reseller, or accounts, then your name registration does not include any web hosting. Registering a domain name simply involves reserving the domain name.

Do I receive some kind of verification of my domain name after I register?
Yes! You should receive an email confirmation of your registration within 24hrs.

How can I register foreign domain names (.uk, .se, .ca, etc)?
Please click here to visit our Foreign Domain Registrars resource page. Although, Onlinemalls can host your foreign domain name, we DO NOT register any foreign domain names. You will have to go to our Foreign Registrars page, find your country, and register the domain name yourself. We can give you any information needed by the foreign registrar.

How long does it take for the world to access my domain name?
Your registration should be completed within 24hrs and will be seen through the Whois Database also within 24hrs. Note that if your registration also includes web hosting, then it truly depends on ALL networks and ISPs of the world to update their servers and lookup your new domain name. Thus, full propagation of new domain names by the entire Internet should take place within 48-72 hrs.

How can I transfer a domain name to your registrar?
If you wish to just transfer an already registered domain name to us (without any web hosting involved), simply email dns@onlinemalls.com your domain name, your full name, email address, and name servers you want it modified to.

Once I have already registered, how can I change my contact or DNS information?
Simply email dns@onlinemalls.com and describe the changes that you need done.

Who owns the domain name if I register with you?
You do! When we register your domain name, we will put you as the administrative and billing contact. Whenever someone wants to make modifications with your domain name, the administrative is always contacted first. The technical contact for each domain will be service@onlinemalls.com.  If for any reason you do not want service@onlinemalls.com as the technical contact, please let us know by emailing dns@onlinemalls.com.

Is the InterNIC synonymous with Network Solutions, Inc?
No. The InterNIC is a concept for an integrated network information center that was developed by several companies, including Network Solutions, in cooperation with the U.S. Government. Under a recent agreement with the U.S. Government, Network Solutions is transitioning from the use of the word "InterNIC" in connection with its products and services. InterNIC is a registered service mark of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
