Domain Questions

Your Name is Included with Your OPP Website!

Unlike most of our competitors, we will not only buy, renew and manage the domain name for you, but the cost of the domain name is already included in the price — so there's no extra domain fee! As long as the domain is listed as 'available for purchase' (e.g. it's not already owned by anyone), and is listed for sale at the normal price, we can purchase a domain for you.

We can purchase domains ending in the following TLD's (Top Level Domains):

  • .com
  • .org
  • .net
  • .biz
  • .info
  • .us

Domain Name versus Hosting

If your website is a house, then your domain name is the address of your house, and your web hosting account is the land where your house is built. Make sense?

The “land” comes from your Web Host and your “address” from your Domain Registrar.

  • If you have a website with us then OtherPeoplesPixels is your host.
  • If you own the domain you use for your OPP site, then whoever you bought it from is your Domain Registrar.
  • If we bought the domain for you, then Namecheap.com, the Domain Registrar that we use, is that domain's registrar. We own the domain, for necessary technical reasons, but no need to fret. If you do ever decide to leave OPP, we consider the domain to be yours in spirit and will happily transfer it to you.
