Los Angeles - DreamHost Webhosting
is proud to announce the launch of their innovative new domain registration system. DreamHost has spent considerable research and development time in developing a revolutionary new process to allow consumers and businesses to register Internet domain names.
Since the break-up of the Network Solutions monopoly last year, an
entire domain registration industry has sprouted up, and with it
vigorous competition. DreamHost has already proved themselves a worthy competitor in this new landscape. "We've been very pleased with the
adoption rate so far. We registered our first 1,000 domain names in less
than a month, more than doubling our original estimates!" gushed John
Robison, Senior Head of Marketing.
Any domain name ending in .com, .net, or .org up to 67 characters in length can be registered with DreamHost! They also offer registration terms from 1 year to 10 years in advance. Renewals are no hassle at all, and can be automatically rebilled to the same credit card used to originally register the domain. "Customers seem to really like that they can get a domain for just a year, and the longer length of allowable names has added a lot of possibilities for people," said Simon Yebio of the Sales Department.
Inexpensive and Immediate
Even better than the low minimum contract length is the discounted
price offered by DreamHost for the registration of domains. Their price is but
$30/year, compared to the $70/two years minimum offered by many competing
registrars. Besides getting them for less, users can also get their
domain names faster. The entire domain-securing process takes less
than a minute, and when completed the domain is immediately reserved and
can no longer be claimed by anyone else in the world. Another great improvement
with the DreamHost system is the ability to register and modify many domains at the same time. Users can enter as many domains as they'd like, each on its own line, and secure them all in just one action. With over 50,000 domains registered each day, how fast one can get ahold of their domain is still of the utmost importance.
Perhaps the most compelling argument for the use of DreamHost's
registration system is its seamless integration into their full-featured hosting environment. Most domains are registered with the intention of one day providing some kind of content through them. When registered through DreamHost all the necessary configuration is automatically taken care of. That way, when the day arrives, a site can be taken live in literally a matter of minutes.
This integration is truly the heart of DreamHost's innovative process. A customer need not retype their contact info, nor remember multiple passwords or complex procedures for modifying domain information ever again. All procedures are easily handled through the same simple web-based administrative area DreamHost hosting customers use for account management. Another side-benefit to registering a domain under this system is that those who do so immediately get unlimited access to DreamHost's superior support team. It is well known how difficult it used to be to get any sort of support from a domain registrar. That is no longer the case.
"Adding domain registration services was a logical step for DreamHost to take. Our customers were asking us to offer it, and it just made sense to provide everything needed to get a domain name on the web in one place," explained DreamHost Honcho Josh Jones, speaking to himself while writing this press release. "We took our time to create a system that was easy to use and well-integrated with the rest of our services, and it's turned out very well."
