Hello Rtconerl,

Domain registrations like any domain- they are registered through a domain registrar. In this case, it would be registered in your name (or business name) with the domain registrar. The first year of registration is free, but the ownership still belongs to you. This is the same regardless of the registrar that you go to. You can find more information for registering domains here:

Registering a Domain name

You can also go to directly to the organization that governs the registration of domain names - icann.org. They have a beginner's document here: Beginner's Guide to Domain Names.

When you register a domain, it is your intellectual property as long as you use a legal name. Note that Web Hosting Hub does NOT register international domain names. See the article above from Web Hosting Hub for further details.

If you have any further questions, please leave a comment below, or contact our live technical support team available 24/7.
