Wildwood's Domain Registration Service
We have partnered with e-Nom.com to offer our clients an easy solution for registration. If you like, we will register your domain, entering your name and contact info as "Registrant" (owner) and Wildwood as "Administrative and Billling" contact. That means though you fully own the domain name, Wildwood will carry it on our auto renewal account and bill you for $10 annually. You can then rest assured that your name is safe from transfer scammers. You will be given a login password where you have control over your name if you so wish.
If you already have your domain registered with a different service, you can just provide us with your login info and we can manage the Domain Name Server (DNS) setting from there to point to your web site. Or, if you like, we can transfer your registration to our auto renewal services at e-Nom.com.
How does your domain name work?
So now if your URL (Uniform Resource Locator) containing your domain name, is typed into a browser or clicked on a hypertext link, the browser sends a request for the web site files and that request goes to what ever web server is associated with your DNS.
Your URL will start with HTTP:// (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) indicating that it is a a hypertext document.
That is followed with www. indicating that it is a web site.
That is followed with YourDomainName.com (your unique registered domain name).
Additionally there may be parts that specify the name of a specific file within the site, for instance /contact.htm
Some FAQs about URLs to keep in mind:
- The first sections of the URL (from the beginning through the domain name) is NOT case sensitive, meaning upper and lower case may be used interchangably. However everything after the slash to the right of your domain name IS case sensitive.
- Most modern browser versions do not require you to type in HTTP:// or the www.
The browser will auto fill that in for you.
- There are no spaces in a URL
- URLs always uses forward slashes (//)
