How do domain names work?
A domain name is very similar to an address forwarding service. The domain name is the address people type in their browser to get to your Web site. The domain name points to the "real" address of the server that contains your Web site content. The "real" address is called the IP address and is a series of numbers, such as 22.214.171.124. This IP address then points to the location on the server where your Web site files are located. Domain names are used instead of IP addresses because most people find it much easier to remember a name rather than a series of numbers. So, your domain name points to your IP address, which is the location of your Web site files on a server, and allows users all across the Internet to view your Web pages.
What is a name server?
Name servers are the Internet's equivalent to a phone book. A name server maintains a directory of domain names and matching IP addresses. The information from all the name servers across the Internet is then gathered in the Central Registry. Host companies check in with the Central Registry on a regular schedule to get updated name server information, which makes it possible for people across the Internet to access your Web site.
When your domain is set up, information about your domain name is added to our name servers. We then send that information to the Central Registry so that other name servers on the Internet may locate your Web site.
It usually takes about 4-8 hours for .COM and .NET domains and about 24-48 hours for all other domain extensions before name servers on other networks are able to access the information after the Central Registry gets it. This period is referred to as the propagation period.
Psyphire's name servers are: NS3.PSYPHIRE.COM and NS1.PSYPHIRE.COM (unless otherwise instructed)
What do I do with my domain once it's been registered?
Thank you for purchasing a domain name registration! Now that the registration is complete, you have a few options on how to put your domain name to use.
Do you have a Web site already designed for your new domain name?
If your Web site is complete, follow these instructions to get your site on the Internet. If not, get a web design quote from us.
Acquire a hosting account.
Modify your domain name servers (DNS) to the addresses provided by your hosting provider.
Upload your Web site to the Internet.
Did you register this domain name because it is similar to your other domain names?
The more domain names you register, the better. Prevent others from registering a similar domain name to yours – just to steal away your customers! What to do with all these names? Forward them to your main domain name!
Do you want to wait to use your domain name?
Maybe you haven’t decided what to do with your new domain name. Don’t worry – there’s no rush. You can leave it parked with Psyphire for the length of your registration.
How can you charge so much less for domain registration than other registrars?
Psyphire does not purchase domains through Network Solutions, Register.com or any other highly expensive domain registration company. Psyphire is affiliated with a fully accredited Registrar of domain names supplying cheap domain registration solutions. Our registration services compete directly with those of Network Solutions/Verisign and Register.com and are highly more affordable.
Our prices for these services are simply better. There are no hidden fees and no gimmicks; and we do not make you use our hosting services with your domain name. We are able to offer these prices by accepting lower profit margins than others might be inclined to, and by striving to keep our operations efficient.

Can a domain registered elsewhere have name servers registered with Psyphire?
The domain must be registered through Psyphire in order for you to use our system to setup name servers for it.
If your domain name is with another registrar then you need to register your name server through them, Network Solutions or InterNIC.
Please contact your current registrar or one of the above companies on how to accomplish that, or click here to transfer your domain name to Psyphire.
If I register a domain from Psyphire, will I be listed as its registrant?
Any public domain registration that you register through Psyphire will have your name as the registrant, just as if you had registered it through any other ICANN certified Registrar like Network Solutions/Verisign, Register.com, or our other competitors. You will be able to alter all four contact fields for the domain, alter its name servers, or use the domain to register your own name servers. We do not charge for any of these services, giving you the freedom to do with your domain, as you want.

What is the Uniform Dispute Resolution policy?
ICANN's Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) defines how disputes over domain-name registrations are resolved in the global top-level domains (.biz, .com, .info, .name, .name, .net, .org, .pro, and .ws, as well as .aero, .coop, and .museum). In accordance with the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, you can dispute a claim to a domain name by following the dispute process. The UDRP does not apply to country-code top-level domains, except in a few cases where the local administrator has decided to adopt it.
Can I change a domain name or get a refund if I misspelled it when I ordered it?
Psyphire is unable to change or edit the spelling of a domain name after it has been registered. The system is setup to attempt to register the domain exactly as it is entered. Should the registration succeed, charges will be incurred even if the domain entered was not what the person actually intended to type. The system only knows what is actually typed. Because Psyphire is charged the moment any domain is submitted, registrations are not refundable.
I want to register a domain that just expired. When will it be available?
Most registrars allow a certain grace period after a domain name expires for the registrant to renew it. That grace period can be as short as one—two weeks or as long as one year in some cases. If the current registrant does not renew it within the alloted time frame, then that domain name should become available. The actual grace period is different for each individual registrar. Once the domain is released you will be able to register it through us.
In many cases soon-to-be-expired domains will be put up for auction. If the current registrant fails to renew the registration within the allotted grace and subsequent redemption periods, you can attempt to obtain the domain by placing a bid for it.
Why is Psyphire listed as the registrant of my domain on a Whois lookup?
When you do a 'Whois' search it is important to pay attention to where you are searching for the information. A registrar is a company licensed through ICANN (www.Icann.org) to record domain registrations on behalf of a customer. Network Solutions, Tucows, and Register are some of our competitors. If you do a 'Whois' query from one of their servers, they are only required to tell you the name of the registrar through which the domain was acquired. They are not required to tell you the registrant of the domain.
The assumption is that if a person knows the name of the registrar, the rest is easy to find out by going to the registrar's site and doing a search there. To perform a search using our server, enter a domain name. When you do a search on your domain, you receive a message stating that the domain is already taken. You would then click on 'Whois' and see that you are the registrant.
I just registered a new domain name. How long until I can use it?
New domains and changes to domains may take up to 4-8 hours for .COM and .NET domains and about 24-48 hours for all other domain extensions to become effective. This is due to the number of networks involved, and the fact that those networks are controlled by several different agencies. This delay applies to all domains and all Registrars. Please allow for this delay when planning Web sites or configuring a domain to work with your email.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is a Web address. The domain name is the same as an IP address (which represents a physical point on the Internet), except the domain name is letters and numbers that make sense to humans, while the IP address is a series of numbers. Thus a domain name locates an organization or other entity on the Internet. When someone types a domain name into a Web browser, the requested Web page will open. For example, the domain name www.yourdomain.com locates an Internet address for "yourdomain.com."
A domain name consists of a top-level and a second-level domain. The "com" part of the domain name generally reflects the type or purpose of the organization or entity and is called the top-level domain (TLD) name. The part of the domain name located to the left of the dot (" . ") — "yourdomain" in this case — is called the second-level domain (SLD) name. The second-level domain name — being the "readable" part of the address — refers to the organization or entity behind the Internet address. Second-level domains must be registered through an Internet Corporation for Assigned Names & Numbers (ICANN) accredited registrar.

What is a top-level domain (TLD)?
A top-level domain is the part of the domain name located to the right of the dot (" . "). The most common TLDs are .com, .net and .org. Several new top-level domains have been added to the menu recently, including, .biz, .info, .name, and .ws. The top-level domains have certain guidelines attached, but are for the most part available to any registrant, anywhere in the world. Exceptions are the restricted TLDs (rTLDs) — which include .aero, .biz, .edu, .mil, .museum, .name, and .pro — that require the registrant to represent a certain type of entity, or to belong to a certain community. The .name TLD is available strictly for individuals, while .edu is reserved for educational entities, such as universities or high schools. Where appropriate, a top-level domain name can be of geographic significance and hence only available to registrants in the locale defined by the TLD. These are called country-code TLDs (ccTLDs) and include such top-level domains as .bz (Belize),.ca (Canada), .dk (Denmark), .ec (Ecuador), ie (Republic of Ireland), .uk (United Kingdom), .us (United States), and .zw (Zimbabwe).

What is a second-level domain (SLD)?
Located immediately to the left of the dot (" . "), the second-level domain is the "readable" part of the domain name. The second-level domain is entirely defined by the registrant, and often refers to the organization or entity associated with the IP address. For example: In www.google.com "google" is a second-level domain.
Second-level domains can be divided into further domain levels. For example: directory.google.com. These sub domains sometimes represent different computer servers within departments. More than one second-level domain name can be used for the same IP address.
What does it mean to register a domain name?
The Internet domain name system (DNS) consists of a directory 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.
Note that the above description applies to domains that are registered and hosted. If the registrant elects to, a domain can instead be registered and parked. A parked domain name does not need a DNS affiliation.

Can I register a domain without having a hosting provider yet?
Yes, you can register as many domains names as you'd like and choose to have them parked until you have found a hosting provider. To do so, a domain name will remain parked unless you choose a hosting solution or the name server settings are left blank. If this option is chosen, a Parked Page will be displayed while you finish creating your site, sell the domain, etc. The temporary site will inform anyone passing by that this is the future location of your site. The temporary site will be active within 24-48 hours for .COM and .NET domains and all other domain extensions after you have completed the registration.

I have a Trademark dispute. What can I do?
Unfortunately, we cannot make any changes to the registrant fields without a legal change of ownership or a court order or an order by WIPO.
If you feel that you are the rightful owner of the domain name, please contact the registrant of the domain name. If you are unable to find a satisfactory solution with the current registrant, you will need to settle the issue with a court order. We do not get involved in domain disputes. We cannot make changes to a registrant field without a legal change of ownership or a court order.
Discrepancies with trademark or rightful ownership are handled by WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization). The email is firstname.lastname@example.org. If a domain name is under a dispute, the domain name will be locked once we are notified by WIPO. It cannot be modified or transferred to another registrar. Once we receive a court or WIPO ruling we update the domain name accordingly.
What does it mean to park a domain name?
Essentially, to park a domain name means to reserve your registered domain until you have created the site content, found a hosting provider, or sold the domain to a third party. When you park your site, a temporary Web page will be displayed until you have decided what to do with the domain. Registrants who do not yet have a hosting provider often use domain name parking.
