What is Virtual Hosting?

Virtual Hosting is also known as shared hosting; this form of web hosting should suffice for most everyone.

How long should I register my domain name for?

You can register your domain name in 1, 2, 5, 10 years, depending on the registrar and extension (e.g. .com, .net) of the domain. Regardless of the length a domain is previously registered, the owner may extend the registration before it expires. The length of notice available to renew a domain before it expires depends on the domain name's current registrar. Therefore, registering for a longer period may be more convenient (so one does not have to re-register as frequently). Some domain name registrars offer lower prices on longer registration periods as an incentive to keep the customer for a longer period of time.
