(Register a domain and point it to another domain
A domain pointer allows you to register multiple
domain names and have them all point to the same website. For example,
if you have an on-line clothing store you may wish to have the domain
names clothes.com, shirts.com, and jeans.com all point to your account.
This is an excellent way to increase your visibility and bring more
visitors to your site!
Here's what you get:
- The ability to point the domain
to any domain name you specify
- The ability to forward your
e-mail to another address
- The InterNIC (the governing
agency in the US) charges a registration fee of $70 for each new
domain name (.com, .net, .org), which covers 2 years. After the
2nd year they will charge you $35 per year. Foreign domain registrations
terms and fees vary.
- A Domain Pointer can point
to any domain name you specify, however, it cannot point
to a subdirectory on an existing website or an IP address.
