Search and Register

What is a domain?

A domain is a set of characters that specify an IP address identifying a website, as well as the email of a given company or organization. Domains should be easily remembered and typed, increasing the number of consumers visiting the website and maximizing your profile in the digital sphere.

Do I need a domain in order to have a website?

Although domains are not strictly necessary in order to have a website, it is highly advantageous to register or acquire one. When creating a personal or corporate website, the domain will allow your platform to be more easily remembered and accessed.

How can you confirm if the domain I am interested in is available?

Inventa offers you an online search tool that allows you to immediately check whether the domain you want is available or not. If so, all you need to do is register it.

The domain I want is already registered! What can I do?

If the domain is already registered, you can always attempt to buy it from the current owner via our Domain Acquisition, or you can reserve the domain so that we can try to acquire it once its validity period expires. However, if you prefer, or if you need to quickly complete the process, you can also consider alternative domain extensions, such as ".co", ".us", or ".biz", among others.

Where can I find information on the available domains in each country?

Inventa offers you a complete list of the existing domains in each country, as well as their alternatives. You can consult them here.

Which characters can be used in a domain?

Depending on the extension, domains must follow certain rules concerning the use of characters. You should only use letters (a, b, c, etc.), numbers (1, 2, 3, etc.) and dashes/hyphens (-). Spaces are not permitted and domains cannot begin or end with a dash (-). However, you can use several dashes next to each other (for example:

I have found a domain that has already expired - how can I register it?

A domain must be fully available before you can register it and, unfortunately, there are not yet any deadlines for the distribution of expired domains. Therefore, the best solution is to use our domain reservation service, where we inform you as soon as you can register the expired domain. You will only pay for the service if the domain is successfully transferred to you.

How much does it cost to register my domain?

Each domain has annual maintenance costs, which vary depending on the type of domain and registration. Use our domain extension table to analyze the costs and convert them into your country's currency.

How can I pay for my domain registration?

Payment for domain registrations can be made via credit card, bank transfer, or cash payment in one of our offices.

How long does it take to register my domain?

The waiting period varies greatly according to the chosen domain extension – a “.com” domain may only take a few seconds, but a more unusual extension can take up to several months. You can find more information on this subject here.

What does my domain registration involve?

After the registration has been formalized and authorized, Inventa activates two DNS server delivery mechanisms, where we can set up and host your domain. Additionally, you are provided with your emails and URL, allowing you to transfer the new domain to your current website.

Do I run the risk of my domain being taken by someone else even after it has been registered?

Your domain will be registered in your name, which means that as long as you pay due costs and meet all legal provisions, no one can use or take hold of it without your prior consent.

What if I make a mistake and misspell the name of my domain?

Be very careful when registering your domain! Once your domain has been registered and paid for, you are not entitled to refunds or reimbursements.
