Domain.com is an all-in-one website building and hosting platform, with features that include;
Domain name purchase
You can buy almost any domain available through Domain.com. The platform supports more than 300 TLDs, including generic ones like .COM and .NET and obscure ones like .BUZZ and .GAMES. Generics are affordable, with prices comparable to rival domain registrars. On the other hand, some obscure ones are quite expensive, like .GUITARS, which costs $89.99 for a year.
Often you’ll search for a domain and see that it’s already taken, but don’t worry. Domain.com allows you to submit your name (for a fee) in advance for when a domain becomes available, so you can bid on it right away. This pre-registration process gives you a good chance of getting a domain name that you think others are competing for.
If you don’t get a domain name after pre-registration, Domain.com will refund your fee
Domain.com offers customers three main hosting plans: Basic, Deluxe, and Ultra. Basic allows you to create and host only one website, while the other plans allow you to host unlimited websites. The Basic plan starts at $3.75 per month, Deluxe at $6.75 per month, and Ultra at $13.75 per month.
Notably, all three plans offer unlimited storage, which is quite remarkable. Most hosting providers ration storage and bandwidth for their lowest plans. The main difference between the plans is the number of MySQL databases and FTP logins they support.
Basic supports 10 MySQL databases, Deluxe 25 and Ultra Unlimited. Also, Basic supports 5 FTP logins, Deluxe 25 and Ultra unlimited.
All three hosting plans come with free SSL certificates to secure your website and a free domain name for one year.
Domain.com offers a dedicated website builder with many features to help you set up a functional and attractive website without a lot of technical work. The website builder allows you to create individual pages for your content. It gives you complete control over the layout and design of your site.
Domain.com’s website builder is powered by artificial intelligence to help you lay the foundation for your website. Answer a few questions at the initial stage and the AI will help you choose the right design, including images and initial content, for your site. Then you can edit it to match your taste.
The AI tool is beneficial because it does a lot of the background work of setting up your website. It will be much more difficult to build your website design from scratch without it.
You can create a great online store with Domain.com’s website builder. The tool allows you to manage inventory, shipping, coupons and discounts, taxes, emails, and payments in one place. Domain.com offers a wide selection of beautiful eCommerce themes.
interface and in use
We found it quite easy to use Domain.com. The initial step is to go to the website and choose the service you want. You can search for any domain name to see if it is available. If so, you can proceed to purchase it immediately. Similarly, if you need web hosting or a website builder, select the plan you want and pay for it.
After paying, Domain.com will ask you to create an account. You can then log in to access your service at any time. We recommend that you use an email that you check regularly to see if any services are nearing their expiration date. It’s even better to keep any service you purchase on auto-renew with an active credit/debit card. Never let your domain name expire because people are looking to take it over if it does.
Domain.com offers customer support via email, live chat, or phone. There are also video tutorials and a knowledge base on the website to help you understand the platform.
Domain.com is a suitable domain registrar and web hosting service. However, we do see some flaws, such as their web host not having direct monthly plans. Calculate the price monthly, but you must pay for at least one year to use it.
