Register - Renew - Recover - Manage
Fern Web’s experience with domain names is legendary. From simple registrations and renewals Fern Web has been successful in recovering lost or stolen domains from many companies. As well, they can manage your domain name on your behalf.
What is a domain name?
Domain names are easy-to-remember words that we can use to visit a website. The Domain Name System (DNS) is what translates the friendly name to an IP address.
Somewhat like international phone numbers, the domain name system gives every server a memorable and easy-to-spell address, such as fernweb.com. It is much easier to type “fernweb.com” in your browser than it is to remember and enter the IP address which the website uses. This is why domain names are so incredibly useful.
Your domain name is the most important part of your web presence. Without a domain name, there is no website, mail server or social media.
Registering and renewing
Fern Web can register your domain name on your behalf. The domain name needs to be renewed annually but usually can be registered many years in advance. While the domain name belongs to the client, we manage the domain and all its functionalities on their behalf.
We manage hundreds of domain names.
Most people don’t realize what a domain does. The management of the domain is how you get a website working to a server; how your mailserver knows where to work from and many, many more complex services.
At Fern Web we look after all this for you.
One of the most unfortunate situations we run into is when a domain name has unexpectedly expired. Fern Web has spent countless hours getting back, or re-activating the expired/dead domain name. All situations are different but if you have lost your domain please contact us as soon as possible so we can render assistance.
