About Domain Name Only Service

While most of our customers choose Web hosting packages, you can also buy domain names from us without Web hosting service. Use the additional domain names to point to Web sites you have with us, use them with another company, or just "park" them to make sure that nobody else uses them.

What is a domain name?

A domain name is your own permanent, memorable address on the Internet.

How much does a domain name cost?

Domain names are generally free if you have Web hosting service with us; otherwise, there's an annual fee.

How long does it take before my domain name starts working?

It usually takes less than an hour from the time you fill out the form.

What information do I need to register a domain name?

If you register a domain name to use with another company's Web hosting service, you'll need to know the names of two DNS name servers.

What kinds of domain names do you offer?

We offer registrations for several types of domain names.

How do I make changes to my domain name?

Our control panel allows you to view and make changes to your domain name settings, including your contact information, DNS nameservers, domain name locking, and transfer authcode.

Can I cancel my "domain name only" registration or renewal?

Domain names without hosting service remain registered until they expire.

How do I renew a domain name?

Explains how to renew a domain name registered through Tiger Technologies.

Can I add additional domain names that show the same content as an existing Web site?

You can purchase additional domain names that show the same content as an existing Web site with Tiger Technologies. We call these extra domain names "domain name aliases".

Can I redirect my “domain name only” URL to another Web site?

We can redirect domain names that are registered through us to another Web site.

Can I park a domain name?

You can park your domain name with Tiger Technologies, allowing you to register a domain name now for future use.

How do I transfer my Tiger Technologies domain name to another domain name registrar?

Very few of our customers transfer their domain names elsewhere. But if you do ever decide to do that, we want to make sure that the process goes as smoothly as possible.

Why does the WHOIS expiration date of my domain name not match what Tiger Technologies tells me?

WHOIS expiration dates can be confusing. Make sure you're using the right WHOIS service to avoid inaccurate dates.

Why do “.biz” and ".us” expiration dates seem one day shorter than they should be?

The company that runs “.biz” and “.us” domain names calculates expiration dates slightly differently than other registries.
