Frequently Asked Questions
Have a question in mind? Feel free to check these common questions below.
QWhat is a Domain Name?
A domain name provides a unique web address where online visitors can reach your website. Similar to your smartphone’s saved contact information, domain names give visitors a memorable and easy-to-spell web address, instead of entering a long numeric IP address. To purchase and continue using a domain name, you need to pay an annual fee to the domain registrar.
QWhat makes a great domain name?
- Choose a domain name that is short, pronounceable and easy to spell (don’t use slangs or modern spellings, e.g. ‘xpress’ instead of ‘express’)
- You can add keywords in your domain name to describe your business and the products or services you’re offering.
- As much as possible, don’t use numbers and hyphens to prevent any misspellings when typed on browsers.
- Use the right domain extension (e.g. .com, .biz, .org) that works for the industry that you’re in.
QWhy do you need a domain name?
- To build a strong online presence that promotes your brand or product
- To help your visitors easily reach and identify your website
- To bring better brand recognition by linking your domain name to your company name
QWhat is a Top-Level-Domain?
The ending part of any domain name is classified as a Top-Level Domain (TLD). It distinguishes an individual website to an industry, organization or geographic location it belongs. Different TLDs have separate registries and manage different ranges of domain TLDs. SingHost sells popular domain TLDs at affordable rates. Our SG domain TLDs require certain verification before a company or individual can use it.
QWhat are the types of domains I can get?
Generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) such as .com/.net and country code Top Level Domains (ccTLD) such as .sg and .com.sg can be purchased from SingHost. Examples of gTLD include .com, .net, .biz, .org and .info. gTLDs can be registered easily without extensive verification. Examples of ccTLD include .sg and .com.sg. To apply for ccTLD domain names, there are some strict rules to follow before your domain is registered. For .sg registration, all individuals and business entities are eligible to apply. Foreign applicants need to either appoint a local administrative contact or register a local office.
QCan I use my SingHost-registered domain name with a web hosting plan hosted from another provider?
Yes, you can pair your SingHost domain name with a web hosting plan from another hosting provider. You need to change the nameservers or DNS settings via the SingHost member’s area. Likewise, customers can also use domain names from other domain registrars with a Singhost web hosting plan.
