Domain Name FAQ

 

There’s only one way to know! The White House Businesses will do an extensive check nation wide and determine the availability to find out if you can register it and for how much. Our domain name search department will also let you know if other extensions or variations are available, such as yourwebsite.net or yourawesomewebsite.org.

Try to keep your name short (less than three words) and easy to remember. If possible, register a domain that’s the same as your business name, or incorporate relevant keywords for SEO. You can use letters, numbers, and hyphens in your domain name, but no other special characters.

Keep your identity private by opting in to The White House Businesses Privacy Protection. We hide your personal contact information from public view by replacing it with an approved vendor, protecting you from spam and identity theft.

The first step to starting your website is registering your domain name. Think of your domain name as a street address for your website. Without a domain name, you would have to tell customers to visit your website at a temporary url such as 123.123.123.123/~yourwebsite instead of yourwebsite.com. Get your own domain name to lend your site a professional look and establish your online brand!

The White House Businesses sells the following top-level domain (TLD) extensions: .com, .club, .co, .space, .us, .website, .org, .net, .me, .biz, .info, .host, .online, .site, and .tech. If you’re looking for something a bit more exotic like .ninja or .beer, we partner with Innovative Hosting Group to sell the latest new extensions.

Domain Renewal 

Your domains will auto-renew by default.  This will prevent any domain from accidentally expiring due to human error.
