Domain Names

Domain Registration and Renewal

The first step in establishing your Internet presence is creating and registering your domain name. Wintek can check the availability of your requested domain name and register your domain name for you as an authorized reseller for Open SRS/Tucows. We’ll also monitor your domain expiration date and provide seamless renewal of your domain to keep your domain name protected and your internet services such as your website and email online and available.

  • Select a domain name that easily identifies your business and/or the products and services that you offer.
  • Your domain name should be one that is short and easy to remember. Often, it is as simple as your business name.
  • Even if you are not ready to create an online presence, go ahead and register any potential name(s) you might want to use now and in the future.

Domain Name Service (DNS)

Domain names are created based on words that are easy for people to remember. However, computers communicate using numbers and access websites and email based on numerical IP addresses. Domain Name Service is the service that translates your domain name into a numerical Internet Protocol (IP) address. To use your domain name for a website or email, you’ll need to host your DNS records on a DNS Server. For example, when you type www.wintek.com, your computer uses DNS to retrieve our website’s numerical IP address and directs your Internet connection to the correct website.

Wintek can host DNS for your domain. Our DNS service utilizes four nameservers to provide you with the reliability and redundancy you need so that your Internet services function quickly and reliably for your users and customers.
