The pricing of a given domain depends on the registry and the registrars. Most registries have the same price for registration and renewal, but especially with new gTLDs, registries sometimes run promotional sales where first-year registration can be significantly cheaper. Also some ccTLDs have different prices, for example .pl costs 10 PLN to register and ...

In order for two servers to share the exact same domain (www.example.com) and your website to work properly the two servers would need to be a mirror of eachother in terms of content and functionality, ideally linked to the same databases and storage behind the scenes since the same user may access either server within the same session. This would be setup ...

Your best bet is to always register the domain right after checking it (if it's available). With a few billion people connected to the Internet, it's not uncommon that a few people come up with the same domain idea at the same time.

ICANN 60 days rule. Well it's not apply in your case, since the domain is already register 5 year ago (not 60 days ago), and I've assume you've not change any detail from last 60 days. Domain transfer is really easy nowadays, it doesn't require time at all, you can transfer any domain name in only one day, or max two days. Also you can change anything you ...

Should renewal price of gTLD will always be identical to the price of purchase? No, not in all cases. For at least the following reasons, which is certainly not an exhaustive list: gTLDs are started in phases, starting with a sunrise. Sunrise prices are often higher (but not always, Google Registry has lower sunrise prices than during standard ...

In your situation the steps for "In Google Domains" should be done in Enom. It looks like you have Enom already set up correctly. Just because http://ghs.google.com/ doesn't have a website on it, it doesn't mean it isn't useful as a DNS entry. A CNAME to it will point your domain to the server with its IP address. That is what you want to allow ...
