Do you have questions about GIWS services?
We have the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about our customers below.
A domain is what makes your website visible to the outside world. For example, our domain is Giws.us, which is what you had to click on/type in to get here. A domain should be considered "virtual real estate" where your online presence begins. Nowadays have a domain and a website is even more important than having a phone number!
A domain is the actual name people will use to navigate to your website. Web hosting is what powers the storage/back-end of your website to make it functional. You may order a domain without web hosting (some people hold them as investments, others redirect to existing websites) but you may not purchase web hosting without a domain.
Absolutely! If you have already registered your domain with another provider (such as GoDaddy), you may use the form above to "transfer" it from them over to us. Don't worry if it's not up for renewal, you won't lose any time you've already paid for, most domains (i.e. .com, .net, .org) actually get an additional year free once transferred.
In the earlier days of the Internet you were basically limited to three TLDs; .com (Commercial), .net (Network), and .org (Organization). Over the last decade+ there are now hundreds of TLDs (i.e. .biz, .us, .dev, .xyz, etc.) giving you many more options to choose from. While .com is (and alway swill be) the most popular, you are welcome to search for the TLD/gTLD that works best for you.
First, you have to search and see if your domain is available. If it is, you can take ownership of the name by registering it, which includes a yearly renewal fee (i.e. $11.99/year for .com). Failure to pay this renewal fee makes the domain available for registration again.
Some highly sought domains have already been registered by investors or other organizations and they make them available on the "aftermarket." Domains that show as premium are still available, but most of the time a much higher rate than an original registration.
