Domain Name

What happens if I don’t renew before the expiry date?

In most cases the registry actually places the domain in a holding period for several weeks after the expiry date. It is possible to renew the domain during this period however addition fees may apply. After the holding period is over the domain is released back for public sales. Some registries release the domain immediately after the expiry date. It is best to renew your domains 30 days prior to expiry to account for any delays in the renewal process.

I have money in my account. Why can’t I register successfully?

There are several possible reasons:
1. The domain name syntax is improper.
2. The domain name has already been registered.
3. The connection with central Registry database is temporarily unavailable.
4. The Registry database is busy and can’t handle additional requests.
The central database Registry exchanges information with NiceNIC.net every day at GMT 6:00-8:00 (US EST 1:00 – 3:00 AM) As a result, the central Registry and the network system are heavily loaded. The registration process is severely impacted during this time. Registration delays, failures, and other interruptions are common. If this happens to you, please wait until this two hour window has passed before trying to resume your registrations.

How do I register a domain?

The hostinginchina Reseller Control Panel provides two ways to register domain names: standard and bulk registration. Standard registration is designed for registering one domain at a time and is a step by step process. bulk registration can support the registration of up to 10 domain names at a single time. All information for bulk registration is provided in a single page form.
To ensure the quickest response from our live registration system, make sure that you have enough of a prepaid balance in your account to cover your domain order. If you do not have enough money in the system, you will be directed to the payment page.
