The EarthLink Blog has articles about getting your business started online (including selecting a URL) as well as tips on choosing the right domain, so now we’ll tell you about “extras” you can add as a part of your EarthLink domain registration).
Here are three tools EarthLink offers as add-ons:
When registering a domain name, the personal information you input to purchase it (name, address, email address) is displayed for anyone willing to look up that particular URL. But EarthLink can make your registration “private,” meaning we hide your personal information to protect you from unwanted communications and spam!
If you took the time to select a domain, chances are you’re going to work hard to make sure people recognize it and visit. But nothing is stopping other businesses from registering similar domain names (either to try and take business away, or simply because they’re not aware of your site). Bur, if you have Domain Guard, EarthLink alerts you when a domain name similar to yours is registered. This way, you can respond to protect trademarks, copyrights and branding efforts!
Were you forced to to register a “.biz” instead of a “.com” (or settle in some other way) because the domain you wanted was already purchased, but not being used? EarthLink’s Domain Monitor tells you when an existing domain name becomes available so you can get the URL you really want!
