First I will say that I'm not a computer oriented person. I have been steadily learning about PhotoBucket and downloads and those things, but I still get tense and confused about much of it.
Does anyone have any insight into buying a domain name? I had mentioned it to my wife on her way out today and she said - "It's not a big deal, you just find a site that sells them and buy one." But I'm having a little trouble. I did a Google search and got what seemed like millions of 'places' selling names. Many of them say things like "secured" and "accepts all major cards and PayPal", but damn, I'm certainly not going to spill my personal information to just anyone. How do I know if they are reputable? How can millions of dealers be selling the SAME 'name'? This is all very confusing to me - Not to appear bleak, but certainly many of these sites must be shady and scummy, yes?
I only want to buy a ' .com ' and set-up a little thing. I have some pictures and information that I have been saving here and there and I'm only aiming for a small site. It will mainly serve as a page or two of resource information and little more - no forums or features or anything like that.
This will be a very new venture for me.
Oh, and in the case of say, and old toy, (NOT a company name mind you) if the copyright hasnt been renewed or the property has gone into limbo, there should be no need for any worries as to things like copyright infringments?
I suppose the worse that could happen would be a 'cease and desist' notice, in which case I'll comply.
Any information is already greatly appreciated everyone, thanks -
