instructions below to help understand and guide you through the global domain
name registration sign up. Instructions are provided on the form pages to help.
A support phone contact is provided on the pages for quick help or to assist

Do a domain name search-
You need to check whether someone else already has your domain name. You can
check your domain name selection to see if its available. You may also check if
other variations are available, like the ".org" and ".net" top level variations.
PageKeeper Service Provides A Whois lookup
on a main page used to look up who is connected to a domain name and a link to
register the available domain name you select. You must purchase the domain name
registration to reserve it.
This also shows who owns a unavailable domain name, should you want to contact
the unavailable domain name"s registered owner.
Create a new account with us-
When you sign up and register a domain name with PageKeeper Service a account
"This Is A New Available Domain Name I Am Registering For The First Time

"First Select What To Do With This Domain Name Below" heading. Then Complete The
Forms That Apply from the Owner/Business Contact Form on down the page.
Check the domain name spelling and the correct top level extension
are shown in the domain name and top level fields-
If not correct them. Check to make sure the top level is not coupled to the
domain name. (i.e. domainname.com.com)
Select the length of your registration-
Choose the number of years you wish your domain to be registered to you. You can
register or renew a domain for up to 10 years. Unless it has expired.
Submit your contact details-
When you sign up a domain name, we need to know the contact details to process
your domain name. We are required to ask for Registrant (Owner/Business),
Technical, and Billing contact details. If you are signing up the domain name
for yourself, you will probably perform most of these roles. In that case, just
fill in the Owner/Business contact details and continue. Your Owner/Business
details will be used for the Billing contacts as well. If those contacts are
different than the Owner / Business Contacts select the "Use The Billing Contact
Information From The Billing Contact Form Below" option.
Tell us how your domain name can be found- (the name servers)
The name servers fields prompt you for the information to enable others to view
your domain located on the technical form. The available options are listed and
explained below. You can change this at any time after your domain has been
registered, so if you are hosting at another ISP but don"t have the information
now, choose the option Park Domain and then come back and change it
(manage domain name) when you get the information.
Example Conditions To Use The Park Domain option:
This domain will not be hosted anywhere.- You"ve signed up the domain name to
secure ownership, but have no immediate plans for it right now. I don"t have a
hosting provider yet, Park it here for free. You signed up your domain name and
will be hosting it soon. PageKeeper Service will point it to our web site for
you to manage later. No Technical Contact information will be needed from you.
PageKeeper Service information will be used for now.
I will be using PageKeeper Service as my hosting provider for this domain. The
hosting account must be set up separately your domain name(s) will point to the
name servers at PageKeeper Service, ready to work with your hosting account.
Example Conditions To Use The Host/Server Technical Contact
