There are many important points to consider before selecting a domain
name. But even after you decided for a domain name one has to be
very careful since your web
hosting partner can be a cheat. There are
4(Four) rights coming along with
your domain name registration. Each are very important. Some hosting
partners keep many of the rights with them to have a hold on you.
Some of them even charge you for transferring those rights to you.

hosting service without bothering its quality. They attract you
by offering cheap domain name registration charge. If you are serious
about your web site, book your domain name with reputed people,
keeping your rights with you.
