Should I register more than one domain?

If you're thinking about registering more than one domain name, you've got the right idea. Registering and using multiple domains names is great for building your business, protecting your brand name, and creating a dynamic online identity.

When you register multiple domain names, you can:

  • Keep your competition from registering a similar domain name drawing customers to them instead of you
  • Promote the different products and services you offer
  • Drive more traffic to your website
  • Enjoy more opportunities to market to — and be listed in — search engines
  • Create distinct advertising strategies reaching different target markets
  • Provide customers more ways to find you when searching the Internet
  • Capture common misspellings of your domain name, instead of sending visitors to an error page
  • Protect your brand and online identity

Domain Privacy

The Benefits of WHOIS Privacy
Domain Privacy can help in the following ways:

  • Avoid potentially becoming a victim of identity fraud.
  • Prevent competitors from performing market research on your company.
  • Avoid spam and/or junk snail mail.
  • Control your personal information and privacy. Do you really want everyone to have access to your address and contact information?

What is WHOIS?
WHOIS is a widely used Internet record listing. It identifies domain owners and how to make contact with them. Domain name registration and ownership is regulated by The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. (ICANN)

What is domain privacy and do I really need it?
Every single domain name has a WHOIS listing. The WHOIS listing is a searchable database of all registered domains on the internet – it is publicly available. Without Domain Privacy, or WHOIS Privacy Protection, all your contact information (address, phone number, name, etc) is available to the public.

How do I set up WHOIS Protection and what is the cost?
Castlerock provides FREE Domain Privacy for our clients on all supported domains. When you purchase a domain from us, we will automatically grant you WHOIS Privacy for life. If you’ve transferred in a domain name, you will have to enable the privacy setting from within the Control Panel. This can be done easily under “Domain Management” -> “Manage Privacy”.

Please note, however, that some country-level domains in the European Union do not support WHOIS protection.If at any point you're stuck or unsure around the Domain Privacy feature on offer, please do not hesitate to reach out to us by logging a support ticket and we'll get straight back to you.
