I’m in charge of the web page for a local non-profit group. I’m just a newbie with web pages, so please bear with me.
I’ve been hosting the web page at a commercial ISP, so the page address is http://xxx.ispname.com/groupname/
I’ve decided to do it the real way and get a domain name for our non-profit group. I find a place (http://www.pair.com) that might be able to host it for less than $10 a month (I still need to look in to the details.)
For getting a domain name, I could register a “.org” domain, which costs $70 + $30 a year or something like that. But I found some information on a web page that seemed to indicate that if I had a “.us” domain name, that’s free?
e.g. if my group is located in Irvine, California, then I would get a domain name ending in “.irvine.ca.us” that would cost me nothing.
Does anyone have the straight dope on this? Most domain name registration sites I go to mention “.com”, “.net”, “.org” domain names and nothing else.
