 +===== Domain Name FAQs =====
 +
 +=== Where can I register my .ca, .com, .net or .org domain name? ===
 +
 +To register your domain name, simply hop on to srs.vif.com and click on Register. You will then have to fill out a few pages of information. Make sure you have a credit card with you, as this is required to register a domain name on the page. The cost for a domain name is $15.95 per year for a .com, .net or .org, and $29.95tx per year for a .ca, .qc.ca, .on.ca, etc. 
 +
 + 
 +
 +=== Can I register other domain TLD's (.info, .tv, etc) with you? ===
 +
 +With us, the only domain name extentions you can register are .com, .net, .org and .ca. 
 +
 + 
 +
 +=== How many emails can I get with a domain name, and were do I upload my website? ===
 +
 +When you're buying a domain name, you're actually buying just that - a name. This domain name does not include any space on the server, nore does it give you access to any email addresses. For that, you will need to get yourself a web hosting either from us or from another webhosting company. ​
 +
 + 
 +
 +=== If I do a whois on my .ca domain name, it's status sais "​APPRVL"​. What does this mean? ===
 +
 +When you register a .ca domain name, you will receive an email asking you to confirm the registration of the domain name by clicking on the link included in the email, and confirming a few pages of informations. Once that is done, then your domain name will truly be registered. ​
 +
 + 
 +
 +=== I already have a domain name but I want to transfer it to you. How do I do it? ===
 +
 +Go to http://​srs.vif.com,​ click on "​Register",​ and then click on "Move Domain Name" after entering your domain name in the box. Then follow the instructions on screen. ​
 +
 + 
 +
 +=== Can I point my domain name to my free webhosting at VIF or some other free webhosting? ===
 +
 +It is not possible to point a domain name directly to a url like www.vif.com/​users/​username/​. This is called "URL Forwarding"​ and it is a technique that is not normally used by domain name registrars. However, if you wish to have your domain name point to such a URL, we suggest you use ZoneEdit as a service, which you can find here.
