Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

You ask, we answer! Here are the most asked questions for our services!

What is Top Level Domain (TLD) or Domain Extension?
  • A Top Level Domain (TLD) or also known as Domain Extension, is that part of a Domain Name which illustrates the relation of the Domain name to an actual domain(area) of expertise. Typically it is located directly after the Second Level Domain or after the last "." (dot) in the Domain Name string. 

    For example, in the domain name the ".com" part is the Top Level Domain and it illustrates the relation between our services and the Commercial (.com) area of expertise.

    Another good example is The TLDs or Domain Extension, in this case, is ".de" and it illustrates that the domain relates to Germany. 

    HostArmada offers a large variety of domain extensions which our users can easily register. However, there are certain TLDs or Domain Extensions that have specific requirements to the Registrants(the customers) before registering a domain name. These requirements can be checked on every Domain Extension page that we have on our website.

Can I change the Top Level Domain once registered?
  • Unfortunately changing the Top Level Domain once the Domain Name has been registered is not an option. This limitation is put by the Registry and our Registrar service have to comply with it. If a user registered a Domain Name with a Top Level Domain that is incorrect the only option that we can offer is the registration of a second Domain Name and for the first one to be Parked or Forwarded to the new Domain Name.

What will I pay for the registration/transfer/renewal of my Domain Name?
  • That depends on the selected Top Level Domain and on whether or not the selected Top Level Domain name is in a promotion or it is presented with its regular price. If the Top Level Domain is in promotion then the price for the Registration/Transfer is the promotional price while the Renewal price will be the regular price of the Top Level Domain. If the Top Level Domain is not in any ongoing promotion then the price for the Registration/Transfer/Renewal services is the same. 

Can I register more than one Top Level Domain but with the same Second Level Domain?
  • Yes, of course! Registering more than one Top Level Domain with the same Second Level Domain is recommended when our customers would like to protect their business and also make it easily accessible for their visitors. Please note that there are no discounts provided for bulk Domain Name registrations. 

Will I receive notifications when I need to renew my Domain Name?
  • Yes, of course! We will send an email when your Domain Name is about to expire along with a renewal invoice. If the Domain Name should be renewed the renewal invoice should be paid within the Renewal Grace Period of 45 days.
