A registered domain name itself does not
automatically show up on a browser. You need to sign up for a hosting service
with a hosting provider in order for the domain name to be viewed by a
You do not need a hosting service if you just want to use the domain name
for email only. 007Names provides free email services for the domain
names we sponsor. The free email setup is located at the "Free Services"
menu of our web site.
How long does it take for a registered
name to show up in the public whois list?
It may take up to twenty four (24) hours
for a newly registered domain name to become available in the publicly
available whois list.
What information does a domain's whois
A domain's whois information includes the
Registrant (who is considered the owner of
a domain name)
Admin. Contact (Administrator contact of a domain)
Billing Contact (the party that is responsible for the domain's billing)
Technical Contact (it can be the same with the admin. or billing contact.
It can also be the sponsoring registrar or hosting provider's information)
.name registration rules
2nd Level .name name registrations: If a second
level .name domain (for example, smith.name) is registered first, any
registration of a third level name (whoever.smith.name) is prohibited.
The registrant (owner of the domain name) can only setup email forwarding
through their registrar or local ISP, not through the registry.
3rd Level .name name registrations: If a
third level .name domain (for example, john.smith.name) is registered
first, the second level name (for example, smith.name) is no longer available
for registration. Any available third level name will be open to registration
and email forwarding can only be setup through the registry.
.name email forwarding
If your 3rd level .name name was transferred to us (not originally registered
through us) and you wish to setup the email forwarding, you need to complete
"Update Domains" from the "Manage Domains" menu first
before you set the email forwarding. By updating the 3rd level domain
name, you have sent your Registrant and Contact information to the registry
and that information needs to match the 3rd level domain name's information
before you can create the email forwarding.
.info IDN Domain Names
Currently the registry only offers German Script .info domain names. There
may be times when you check a German Script name it returns "Available" but
when you submit the registration it fails. The error code in this situation
is 510. It means the name has variants and therefore is not available
for registration. The registry also blocks some characters
upon the request of the host country government.
For .com/.net the reason is likely to be the Invalid Name Servers. If
you did not use our default name servers, the name servers you entered
For other domain names (.biz, .us, .info....) the reasons could be one
of the following:
1. Your Registrant and Contact information
have invalid phone format. You need to update them from the "Manage Contacts"
menu using the format displayed on the page.
2. If you fail to register a .us name,
it could be that your NEXUS information is missing. This is a unique requirement
from the .us registry. You need to login to your account and select "Update
Registrant" from the "Manage Contacts" menu to enter the NEXUS
information before you proceed to register a .us name.
About .Pro Name Registrations
AV Object can be reused by the registrant within 30 days (using the same
authorization pin) to register other third level names at $125.
You can only register a third level .pro
name if you have only one professional credential. If you have two credentials
on two different professions, you may register a second level .pro name.

How to transfer a domain name in your
account to another account within 007names.com
If you sell a domain or give a
domain to another party to control, you need to change the ownership (domain
account) of the domain name.
You need to obtain the new owner's account
name with 007names.com, then login to your account to do "Change
Domain Account" from the "Manage Domains" menu.
How to transfer a domain name between
It is part of the gaining registrar's responsibilities to provide the
inbound transfer function.
If you are to transfer domain names to us, you need to login to your account
with us to initiate the transfer of the names from the other registrar to
us. If you want to transfer names from us to another registrar, you need
to go to the registrar of your choice to initiate the transfer.
Restoration of a deleted domain
When a domain name is deleted either by a
registrar or by the domain name owner the domain registry will change
the status of the domain name to "REDEMPTIONPERIOD". It will
stay in this status for thirty (30) days for the original owner to claim
it back. After the thirty day period the domain name will be moved to the
"PENDING DELETE" status and will stay in this status for five
(5) days before it is released to the general public.
The sponsoring registrar of a deleted domain
name needs to submit a "RESTORATION" request and then a "RESTORATION
REPORT" to the domain's registry only if such a request is initiated
by the registered domain name owner.
007Names.com charges $120 for the restoration
service. If you have a deleted name
and wish to restore it, you need to login to your account to make a deposit
for the $80 restoration fee plus renewal fees of the domain name. Upon
receiving the deposit we will submit a restoration application on your
behalf and the domain name will be back to normal once we have completed
About WHOIS data of your domain names
If you only want to modify existing Registrant
or Contacts information, you do "Update Registrant" or "Update Contacts"
from "Manage Contacts" menu. Our "Update Registrant" or "Update Contacts'"
will automatically send the new Registrant or Contact to the registry
if it is a thick registry (responsible for their whois), and the domain
names that use the same Registrant/Contact will automatically pick up
the new info.
If you create a new Registrant or Contact
and wish to have all or certain domain names to use the new one you have
created, you need to use "Change Domain Registrant" or "Change Domain
Contacts" from "Manage Domains" menu to update the domain whois info to
the registry. "Update Domains" will do the same except it only takes care
of one domain name at a time.
