Rock Bottom Priced Domains - Certified Domain Name
When people type in a new domain name to visit a website, they may arrive at a site they've never visited before and know nothing about. Naturally, they're a little on guard. After all, who hasn't read about internet scams? That's why you want customers to feel comfortable doing business with you. One way to do this is to use a certified domain name.
What is a Certified Domain Name?
A certified domain name is one where the domain owner's information has been verified. When you have a certified domain name, it reassures visitors that you are a legitimate domain owner, which is reassuring to anyone who may wish to do business or purchase products from you.
How Do You Get a Domain Name Certified?
When you apply for domain certification, your domain registrar will request that you fill out a form. This form will ask for your contact information including a current telephone number where you can be reached.
Once the form is completed, your domain registrar will verify the contact information you listed when you registered your domain name including the administrative contact, technical contact and registrant. To do this, they'll send a verification email to each unique email address listed under your domain name on the Whois database. If you listed the same email address for technical contact, administrative contact and registrant, you will only receive one verification email.
When you receive the verification email, you'll be required to enter a code listed in the email. Your domain name registrar will give you instructions on how to do this. Once email verification is complete, the domain registrar will do a quick fraud screen. If you pass this test, they'll proceed to telephone verification. To do this, they'll contact you at the phone number you provided. When you receive the phone call, you'll be given a PIN number. At the end of the phone call, you'll simply enter this PIN number correctly to complete the telephone verification process.
If you pass all of these steps, you'll be eligible for a certified domain name. Congratulations! Your domain registrar will place a digital seal on your website, which proudly displays the fact that you're the legitimate owner of your domain name. In a world where scams abound and people aren't always who they say they are, a certified domain name gives customers additional reassurance that can add to the success of your website or online business.
Once you have a certified domain name, you'll be asked to re-validate your domain every two years to keep your certification and your digital seal.
You Can Certify a New Domain or a Pre-Existing One
Even if you already have a domain name, you can contact your domain registrar and ask to have it certified. When you purchase a new domain name, you can also ask for certification at the time of purchase. The cost of having a certified domain name is modest, usually a few dollars a year.
Is a Certified Domain Name Worth It?
If you plan on selling products or otherwise exchanging money, it's a good idea to have a certified domain name to show you're a legitimate website. This will build trust. On the other hand, if you're using your website only as an educational tool, it may not be necessary. Fortunately, it's a simple process to get a certified domain name should you choose to do so.
