Where is the best place to buy a domain name
To purchase a domain name, you need to look for domain name registrar. Domain name registrars are companies that manage the domain names behind all your stunning websites.
1.Choose the Right Registrar
A good domain registrar will provide you with all the information you need at the same time give you the flexibility to configure your DNS, to point to any other provider without restrictions. Such as pointing to Blogspot, Wix, WordPress, Weebly, Shopify and so on.
A good domain registrar will also make sure your information is secure after you have successfully registered a domain name.
Beware! Your Personal Information Might Be Used
You need to take special care in purchasing through the right registrar. You may be curious, why am I saying this? Read this seriously, or else your email address, phone number and address will go public.
When a domain name is registered from your registrar, your information will be submitted to ICANN(Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers). ICANN requires your personal information including your full name, address, phone number and email address to process. This information is then made visible to the public via a WHOIS lookup. In fact, it’s available to everyone to check it using your domain name, including marketers, business salespersons, spammers and even identity thieves to get your information. Looks scary, right?
But, no worries! There is a solution to protect your information being publish on the public.
