Registrars and Your Domain

About Registrars

Your Registrar is the person or company from which you purchased your domain.

For example, if you bought the domain “mywebsite.com”, the person or company from which you bought that domain is your registrar.

Example registrars include (but are not limited to):

  • Enom
  • GoDaddy
  • InMotion Hosting
  • Network Solutions
  • Register.com

You pay your registrar an annual fee from $12 to $20 in order to maintain your domain registration.

When available, we recommend setting your domain to auto-renew so you don’t forget to make your annual payment.

About Domains

A domain -- the web address you purchase from a registrar -- is necessary for your law firm’s web presence. Domains identify where people can actually find your site. Without a domain, your website is unlikely to be found by anyone. Domains are the internet equivalent of a physical address: without a physical address, it would be quite difficult for a client to navigate to your law firm’s office, much less find their way home or find other landmarks.

If you’ve never had a website before, you will need to purchase your domain from a registrar. We are happy to walk you through this process during your sign-up with LawLytics.

Warning: Registrar information is important. It should be kept safe and secure with a password and PIN number that only you know. For additional security, some registrars offer two-factor authentication that requires you to enter an additional passcode sent via SMS to your phone.

LawLytics does not take ownership or control of your domain. The only time LawLytics will access your registrar account is to launch your site for you. After your site has launched, we recommend that you change your registrar password.
