The domain name is the first thing your customers will remember about your business. This is the first step in an effective advocacy strategy for your brand. Your domain name will be displayed in your e-mail addresses, business cards, social networks and more importantly, your domain name will also represent your website.

As one of the leaders in web hosting Canada, we know that having a lot of quality choices is important, which is why we literally offer hundreds of different domain names to choose from.

Once you have an excellent domain name, it's time to share the good news.
Make it easier for potential customers to find you on social media. Point your domain name to your LinkedIn profile and place your address in your resume. Point your domain on your YouTube channel, Facebook page, Twitter feed and personalize your social media.
Use your new domain name to improve the presence of your online business. Create professional email addresses that you'll be proud to share with your customers and use them for your corporate website and online store.
If you have a flair for what will be trendy soon, you can invest in promising domain names. Buy them now and resell them later with profit.
Making your information private will eliminate domain spamming and protect you against some stalkers.
When registering your domain name, you must enter your information (name, address and phone number). This information is subsequently published in a public database called « Whois » as required by the domain name registration authority such as ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).
Several robots and spammers are monitoring this database in real time to collect the email addresses and phone numbers of new registrants and use them to sell new services or to attempt scams.
For each domain, you can buy the « Protection ID » service. Your information as the legitimate owner of the domains will be securely kept and a « Private information » mention will be posted in the public database « Whois » so that nobody can retrieve your information and annoy you.

Domain names are meant to make our life easier on the internet. In fact, the Internet uses so-called IP addresses to communicate between servers, but remembering an individual IP address is not an easy task for a human being. Here is where the domain names come into play. They are much easier to remember and will help your friends and potential customers find your website in the blink of an eye.
There are some rules that can help you make your domain name more popular.
There are some restrictions in connection with the registration of a domain name.
With some domain extensions (like .com), there are no restrictions on usage, but other domain extensions have some restrictions. For example:

Being a major web hosting company in Canada, we have several types of servers and products that require separate name servers. Unfortunately, we can not list here which name servers should be used specifically for your product.

Otherwise, you can always contact our technical support team through your client portal and we will be happy to provide you with the specific information for your needs.
This type of domain has characteristics that are different from other domains and requires activation of the "auto-renew" mode. Once your purchase has been made, open a technical support ticket through your client portal and ask to activate the « auto-renew » mode. If this option is not activated, your domain will not be able to renew, even if your renewal payment has been made on time. Normally, 15 to 10 days before the scheduled expiration, the domain will become inactive and will be removed from the registry, which will result in high costs for recovery, if any. In "auto-renew" mode, the domain will be renewed every year, automatically. In the event of cancellation, you must notify Astral Internet by technical support ticket at least 15 days before the scheduled expiration in order to avoid your payment obligations.
This type of domain is automatically renewed at expiration.
