What is GiveAURL.com?

We have pioneered a unique gift concept and process that you won't find anywhere else.   Our patent pending process makes it extremely easy to buy  a domain name for someone else and couples it with four innovative gift packages. The result is a unique digital age gift that gives the recipient true ownership of a piece of the web.   See more about us...

 

 

What is a URL?

URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator,  which is a global address on the World Wide Web.  It starts with "http://" or "https://" and you will see it at the top of your browser when you are surfing the web.  For example http://www.GiveAURL.com is a URL.

 

 

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is a subset of a URL and is a unique, easier to remember address on the worldwide web for websites and email.  For example,  "GiveAURL.com" is the domain name portion of the URLhttp://www.GiveAURL.com.  No two websites can have the same domain name.  A person or business who registers a domain name does this on a worldwide basis. 

 

 

What does domain name registration mean?

It means that you are laying claim to a unique web address on a worldwide basis.  Ownership information is recorded in the global registry so no one else can register or use it.  Our Search function accesses the global registry to see if a particular domain name is available.  We register the domain name for you and "Gift-ize" it by offering you four gift packages to choose from.

 

 

Why would anyone want a registered domain name?

See the top ten reasons.

 

 

Can I give this as a gift?

Awesome idea!  Your friends and family will love it as much as you do and we bet that they have never received anything like it before.  We have found that many customers will give a domain as a gift as well register one or more for themselves and/or their kids.  By the way, we have four other radically unique gift websites that allow you to easily give stock gifts, caricature gifts, art gifts and icon gifts..

 

 

How do I buy a domain name gift?

The process is very simple.  All you need is the recipients name.

  1. You search for available domain names using our Search page.

  2. Once you have found a domain name that you like and is available, you proceed to the shopping cart.

  3. You select a gift package, provide personalization information as well as provide billing and shipping info.

  4. The domain is registered.  Activation information and the gift package is sent to you or the recipient depending on what you choose.

 

 

What does the recipient get?

We have four gift packages that should suit just about any need.  More....

 

 

How long does it take?

With the Standard Package, the registration and activation information comes immediately as part of your confirmation email.  You may want to print out a Do-It-Yourself Giftnote if you are giving it as a gift.  The other gift packages include a tangible gift which is shipped out of Gilbert Arizona within 3 business days of your order to the address you indicate.  Delivery is dependent on the shipping method you choose.

 

 

What domain name should I choose?

Searching for clever domain names that have some meaning to the recipient and are available can be a fun experience.  People are normally looking for something catchy and memorable.  In addition, many want to make a statement about themselves or their interests.  Certainly, people's names as a domain are a favorite.  See some creative ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

 

 

What is the difference between a .COM, .NET, .ORG, .MOBI, .NAME, .BIZ?

The .COM, .NET etc portion of a domain name is called the Top Level Domain (TLD).  It is basically a category established by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).  You can now register domains in any of the following categories which are now unrestricted:

  • .COM - Generally preferred because it has been, and continues to be the most popular and most recognized.  Good names are becoming more scarce.  Originally just for commercial, now can be registered by anyone.

  • .NET - Next in line in popularity along with .ORG because more good names are available.  Originally for network infrastructure related entities, now can be registered by anyone.

  • .ORG- Next in line in popularity with .NET because more good names are available.   Originally for organizations not clearly falling within the other TLDs, now can be registered by anyone.

  • .MOBI- A newer up and comer.  Can be registered by anyone but popular for websites catering to mobile phones and devices.

  • .BIZ - Intended for commerical/business use.

  • .NAME - Gaining popularity as more individuals and families want to use their names for domain names.

What is length of the registration period?

As with all domain name registrations done worldwide, the buyer selects the term of the registration with a maximum term of 10 years established by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which is an organization responsible for managing the internet's domain name system.   As the expiration date approaches, the recipient receives email notifications so they have the option to renew.  During checkout you can select from 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10 year registration terms.  You will note that the price drops significantly after the first year.  Most of our customers opt for a 1-3 year registration period.

 

 

What is the difference between GiveAURL.com and NewAngleDomains.com?

GiveAURL.com has partnered with NewAngleDomains.com  in order to make this innovative gift possible.  We, GiveAURL.com are creative gift experts, and  NewAngleDomains.com specializes in domain name registration, management, and hosting.  Both organizations take pride in servicing our customers.  You will deal with GiveAURL.com during the gifting process and the recipient will deal with NewAngleDomains.com to manage their domain name and the other services that come with it.

 

Why does the recipient need to activate his/her domain name?

  We do this for two main reasons: 

  1. To make it very easy for the gift buyer to reserve a domain name for a recipient.

  2. To ensure that accurate and complete registration information is entered into the global database.  As mentioned above, all registration information is put into a worldwide database that can be accessed by registrars worldwide.  It is important that this information be correct and up to date.   The recipient (or responsible adult in the case of children under 18) is in the best position to provide accurate information. 

I bought a domain name but when I do a search on it, it says it is still available?

We register all domain names within one business day.   The domain name is first registered in our company name Leading Edge Gifts LLC in order to reserve it until the recipient activates it and completes the registration information.

 

How do you ship?

We generally use UPS for domestic shipping.  USPS is generally more economical for international orders. Our shopping cart allows you to choose the mode of shipment and uses both UPS and USPS live rate lookup to calculate the shipping cost. You will receive an email notification with a tracking number upon shipment on UPS orders.

 

UPS shipping methods provide tracking and are insured. USPS Express Mail International is insured but tracking may be limited, and all other USPS options are NOT insured and do NOT provide thorough tracking so if you choose this option, you assume the risk of loss.  Please keep in mind that if timing is a concern, we ship from Gilbert, Arizona and UPS Ground generally takes a week to get to the East Coast.  UPS does not deliver on Saturdays or Sundays (In certain cases, UPS can deliver on Saturdays, but you must contact us to make special arrangements for a UPS Saturday delivery).

 

At Leading Edge Gifts we will meet or beat our shipping commitments but we are at the mercy of UPS and USPS to deliver your order to you.  Delays by UPS or USPS  due to bad weather or some other reason are out of our control.  We will submit claims when possible and pass along any proceeds that we recover to impacted customers.
