How to register a domain name in Singapore

What is a domain name?

A domain name is the name of your website – it is where other people can find you online.

Computers connected to the Internet are identified by a unique series of numbers called an IP (Internet Protocol) address. It is a unique numeric address – a string of numbers that is difficult for most people to remember.

An IP address is like your home mailing address. If someone sends you a letter by postal mail, they must have your physical address. Similarly, an IP address is the physical address of your online presence.

If we need to remember a set of numerical values such as “50.62.194.30” every time you wanted to connect to www.rammp.com.sg, it would be a pain! In 1983, the Domain Name System (DNS) was invented to help people connect to specific computers and content that was used later to make website addresses.

How to register a Singapore Domain Name

Step 1: Selecting and checking your domain name

Selecting a good domain name for your website is extremely important.

Once you decided to go public with a domain name and to make your business presence online, you’ll likely have to keep it for a long time.

Some useful tips on choosing a good domain name as follows. These are based on best practice recommendations:

  1. Choose a domain name that reflects your business.
  2. Choose a domain name that can be a brand.
  3. It must be easy to pronounce if you want it to be easily remembered.
  4. ” .com ” OR ” .com.sg ” OR ” .sg ” are of good standard – always go with those if possible.
  5. Make it as short as possible.
  6. Don’t use one that could infringe on others trademarks.
  7. A domain name should ideally be related to your business – people should be able to quickly figure out what you do.
Step 2: Choosing a Domain name extension
Below are the most standard extensions.
  1. ” .com ” : If you intend to market your product with a worldwide reach you could opt for this option. Possible issue with ” .com ” extensions could be availability of domain names, as they could have already been purchased OR used by some other company globally.
  2. ” .sg ” : This category is available to all with a valid Singapore postal address. A foreign applicant may apply for a domain name in this category if it appoints a local agent having a valid Singapore postal address as the Administrative Contact.
  3. ” .com.sg ” : Applicants registering for a ” .com.sg ” will need to be either registered, or in the midst of registering with the Accounting & Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA). A foreign company which has not registered may only apply for a ” .com.sg ” domain name if it appoints a local agent as the Administrative Contact. This local agent shall be a legal entity that is similarly registered by any of the organisations and duly authorized by the foreign company.
  4. ” .org.sg ” : Names under ” .org.sg ” are only available to organisations which are either registered, or in the midst of registering, with the Registry of Societies (ROS). Town councils, community centers, places of worship, embassies and any other organisations not classified elsewhere could also apply for this extension.
Step 3: Choosing a registrar

In Singapore, you can register your ” .sg ” domain name with any of the registrars accredited by Singapore Network Information Centre (SGNIC) and global domain name registrars.

There are also many external registrars, both in Singapore and overseas.

One such popular registrar with an excellent 24/7 support is www.godaddy.com and they are managing millions of domain names and provide web & email hosting.
