Understanding Domain Names
A "domain name" is an easily recognizable replacement
for a set of numeric addresses on the Internet.
The Internet uses complex arrangements of numbers - addresses
- to hop from one place to another to find a file and to send
information. The numbering scheme would be difficult to remember,
but a domain name, which also provides numerous branding and marketing
advantages, is easy to remember.
Owning a Domain Name
Domain names are the alphanumeric version of an address on a
web server They cannot be "owned per se" any more than
your address at your home is owned. You own your home, subject
to all the rights that you have given to another entity, such
as a mortgage holder, but you do not physically "own"
the street address. The same is true of domain names. A person
or company does not physically own the domain name, rather, they
purchase a license to use the domain name for a specific period
Domain names can be trademark protected, certified, and registered.
When these additional steps are taken, the holder(s) of the trademark
then owns the right of use to the respective trademarked name.
For more information about trademarks, please refer to the government

Getting and Parking a Domain Name
If you do not yet have a website, you can license the domain
name of your choice, and then park it on our servers without additional
costs. Parking a domain name keeps it safe until you are ready
to use it. To license and park a domain name, please visit listmeonlinedomains.com.
One of the reasons for licensing and parking a domain name is
to age it, but to properly age a domain name, it must be 'resident
on the web'.
Aging a Domain Name
As is true with many things in life, age does matter, or at least
that is what most believe when it comes to domain names, but not
quite in the same manner as most claim. Many websites online claim
that you can age a domain name by merely owning it; that is not
true. A domain name ages from the date of its licensing and
deployment onto the World Wide Web. The act of licensing a domain
name establishes a date for some purposes (such as trademark or
trademark infringement), however, it does not "age"
the domain per se on the World Wide Web until such time that the
name is made available and is in fact indexed into the search
For that reason, when you visit listmeonlinedomains.com,
you will be able to set up a website quickly to begin the aging
