Yes. You can register a domain name at any time and start your online identity.
Only a few rules must be followed when registering your domain name.Your domain name must always begin and end with either a letter or number. Your domain name may not exceed 63 characters. This does not include the .com, .net or .org extension at the end.Hyphens are the only acceptable non-letter/number character to include in your domain name. Other characters, such as exclamation points and underscores, are not permitted. Don't worry about upper and lower case letters-domain names are not case sensitive.
If you search for the availability of a name on Unique-Links and it is not available, it means that someone else has already registered that domain name. Unique-Links can only register domain names that are available.
Once you have your domain name registered, your next step should be to find an Internet Service Provider (ISP) or a Web hosting company. If you need help finding one, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. When you have the pages of your Web site developed, the ISP or hosting company can help you get them up and running on the Internet.
Once you have registered a domain name through Unique Links, it will automatically reside, free of charge, at http://parked.Unique Links.com . Anyone searching for your Web page will be directed to this site until you change the name server by signing up for service with a Web hosting company or an Internet service provider. The company that you choose as your ISP or Web host will then work with you to transfer the domain name to your virtual server.
The owner of the domain name is the registrant information entered into our database at the time of the original registration. To find out the registrant information for a domain name, please visit the WhoIs Search.
The cost to register or transfer .com, .net, or .org domain is only $7.99 per year, whereas .biz, info, and .us cost is $8.99 per year.
Once you have registered a domain name through Unique Links it will reside at http://parked.Unique Links.com and will remain there until you change the domain name server. We provide this service free of charge.
Once your name is registered with Unique Links, it will take up to 48 hours before your information will be posted on the 'WhoIs' search.
After you have registered your domain with Unique-links, you can check to see whether or not your domain is pointing to the correct nameservers. The "whois" information is often wrong, and should not be used. Go to a command prompt and enter the command:
nslookup -type=NS yourdomainname.com
If the response does not contain all of the correct name servers, then this information has not been entered correctly at Unique-links during the registration.
To check to see whether a particular server is esponding, your can add the server name:
nslookup http://www.yourdomainname.com/ ns1.your-name-server.com
If the response has a bunch of 'root-servers' that means the server does not know about the domain name and is referring you elsewhere.
Send an e-mail to support@Unique-Links.com with your domain name and the password for managing your domain name will be e-mailed to the appropriate contact for your domain name in 24 hours
Login to your account. In this area you will be able to change your billing information, administrative contact, technical contact, and name server.
Making changes to different aspects of your account is a relatively simple process. Simply visit Unique Links and login to your account by entering your username, password and domain name. You will then be able to choose from a number of possible actions and be given specific instructions online on how you can complete any changes you need to make.
When your domain name registration comes up for renewal, we will send an e-mail to the person listed as the billing contact for that domain name. That person will have 30 days to renew the domain name’s registration. Following the expiration date, we will continue to hold the name as registered for a grace period of 30 days. During this time, a second e-mail will be sent to both the domain owner and billing contact. If there is still no response after the grace period, the domain name will expire and become available for registration by other parties.
Simply follow the instructions listed on our Transfer Domains Names page.
Now that you have completed registration for your domain name the first step is to find a hosting partner.

No. You can stay with Unique-Links.com as long as YOU are happy with our service. You are free to move your domain to another service provider any time you wish.
Most domains never exceed 200 megs of traffic per month, but let's put it in real terms. On a 300mb web hosting account we allow you 200 megs per DAY of traffic. 200 megs = 204,800 kilobytes. For a web page that takes up say 48 kilobytes of space on our server, the page would have to be accessed 4,266 times per day, or 128,000 times per month to reach the limit. If you go over the "free" limit, you will be notified by email that your site is exceeding the traffic limits before we begin to charge you for additional traffic.
