Want a Domain Name?
A good place to start is to find a domain name. When you
reserve a domain name, you're actually just leasing the letters.
For a set fee per year, you control where a web surfer goes when
they type in your domain name.
You can use this form to check domain name availablity.
Reserving Your Domain Name
Once you find a domain you like and it's available, the next step is to reserve it.
There are several companies online who sell (lease) domain names.
These are known as registrars.
Metasphere.net typically uses Verisign which can be reached from the form above
(Note, you should never pay more than $35 a year for domain leasing).
The only piece of technical information a registrar may need to reserve
your domain name is the location of where your website will reside.
This location is your DNS Name Server information. It consists of
an ip address and a server name. A Primary DNS and Secondary DNS are
kept on file with your registrar. Below is the information your
registrar will need to point your new domain name to Metasphere.net.
Primary Name Server
Secondary Name Server
I don't feel like doing this!
If registrars and Name Servers are not your cup of tea we can help.
We can reserve your domain name on your behalf. You'll own the name,
and metasphere will be listed as the technical contact.
