A Top Level Domain (TLD) are the words or letters that appear directly after the last dot of a domain. For example, the domain ‘exampledomain.com’ the TLD would be ‘.com’ (.com is the most popular TLD). There are currently over 400 TLD’s in existence and available to purchase
TLDs can also be called domain name extensions or domain extensions
Choosing your TLD is a very important part of buying any domain. Different TLDs are easier to remember and even rank better in the search engines, which is why it is so important to take the time to find the right TLD for your site.
To renew your domain you can log into your GGS billing page, click ‘domain section’ and choose the domains you want to renew. From there simply follow the step by step directions to complete the process
After you have registered your domain name with GGS, you’ll have 100% ownership. You can move the domain to another company, modify it or do anything else you would like with your domain without any restrictions.
If you make any changes to your DNS information for your domain it can take anywhere from 12 to 24 hours for it to propagate out through the Internet. During this time your website may be inaccessible to users.
My autorenew failed. What do I do?
The most common reason for an autorenew to fail is because your credit card information is outdated or no longer valid. To fix this issue simply update your payment information to complete the autorenew process. If your domain has already expired, simply complete the manual renewal process to reactive your domain. If you have any questions about this process, please contact our support team right away
We make every effort possible to help ensure you don’t lose the domains you want to keep, which includesseveral notifications.
We will send out a total of four email reminders to renew your domain. This begins about 45 days before the expirtation date of your domain. We’ll send additional reminders 25 days before and then 5 days before the domain expires. Finally, we’ll send another email 3 days after your domain has expired.
If at this point we still can not secure a payment for the domain, your domain will expire. At this point your page will be deactivated and a ‘parking’ page will be put up, which indicates that the domain is no longer active. Other services you have with your domain may also stop functioning.
As soon as 31 days after the expiration date, your domain may be auctioned, sold, deleted or otherwise disposed of. If a third party purchases the domain name at any point after the 31 days, it will NOT be available for you to reactivate
As early as 45 days after the date of expiration, if your domain has not yet been purchased by any third parties, it will enter a 60 day redemption grace period. If you choose to renew your domain name at any point during this holding period (and it has not already been purchased by a third party) you may be charged a $200 reactivation fee (plus the annual renewal fees).
If the redemption period ends without being renewed or purchased by a third party the domain name will be held for five days, at which point it will be deleted from our system and released back for general registration.
