Domain Register allows people, on a global basis, to search for available .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, .us, .asia, .eu, .am, .ag, .at, .be, .bz, .cc, .ch, .co,,,, .cx, .cz, .de, .fm, .gd, .gs, .hn, .in,,,,,,, .la, .lc, .li, .me, .mn, .mobi, .ms, .mx,,,,, .pl, .sc, .tc, .tv, .tw,,,,,, domain names. We perform a 'whois' in a user-friendly format. Once a desired available domain name is found, Domain Register allows people to order their domain name registration with the InterNIC on-line. This is also called URL registration, web name, website name, custom domain registration, dns registration services, net names registration, internet identity registration, or even sometimes internet business name registration.
