Frequently Asked Questions
The domain name system (DNS) translates Internet domain and host names to their corresponding IP address using a distributed database. When you type a web site address, such as www.mercury.net, in your web browser, DNS automatically converts that web site address to an IP address of the web server that is hosting that site. DNS is what makes it possible for people to use friendly, readable domain names for their websites that allow others to easily find them on the internet.
To register a domain just call Mercury Telecom customer service and one of our representatives will be able to assist you with registering your new domain name.
When you register a domain, general information about who is responsible for the domains will be made publicly available. This information is generally used to allow for quick resolutions of technical issues and to help aid in enforcing trademark, copyright, and other laws.
By default, domain name registrations last for a minimum of 1 year. However, you are given the opportunity to register a domain name for multiple years in yearly increments. At the end of your registration period you will be required to renew the domain name at the current price of domain name registration.
If domain names are not renewed at the end of your registration period they will expire and will enter a grace period of 40 days. During this 40 day grace period the original registrant can renew the domain at no additional cost. At the end of the 40 day grace period the domain will enter the redemption period. During this period it may be deleted or auctioned off. If a domain is queued to enter or is part of a live auction, the original registrant cannot redeem the domain at this time.
Depending on the status of the domain during this redemption period, it may still be possible to renew the domain but the cost is greater than that of a normal domain renewal. To redeem a domain during the redemption period, it is recommended that you contact Mercury Telecom customer service.
Domains can be both transferred to and away from Mercury Telecom. The registrars involved are known as the “losing registrar” and the “gaining registrar”. When transferring domains, most registrars will impose a few minor restrictions. These restrictions normally consist of a time frame in which the domain being transferred must have resided with the losing registrar. This time frame is generally 60 days since the domain was first registered or transferred to the losing registrar, but may vary depending on the registrar.
