With Avoori Domains, the journey might be different than that of building a website, but it’s nevertheless, just as pleasing. You can always purchase a domain name, and start your own journey with it using a parking page instead of building a website.
Your parking page is easy to customize, is pre-designed and ready to go the moment you buy a domain name from Avoori. Your parking page doesn’t include any ads or any other content besides your domain name.
With this guide, you’ll be able to purchase a domain name from Avoori, and learn all the steps it involves from A to Z.
Tip: If you have a domain name bought using a third-party provider, then you can still move it to Avoori by transferring it and get a parking page.
What To Know Before
- Avoori Domains and parking pages are a great way to familiarize yourself with website creation and domain owning.
- To add a website to a domain you’ve already bought on Avoori, then all you have to do is choose the domain name and connect it to a website.
- Avoori domains are billed on an annual basis.
- You can create a website under that domain name or create one independently and then connect it to that domain.
Each domain name’s pricing is different based on the TLD. You can only know the pricing of your website by going to Avoori Domains and checking your domain name for further information.
One thing to know before is that TLDs like .com or .org that are very common usually cost around $20 per year while others might cost $50 depending on their purpose.
Each domain name you buy on Avoori will be billed on an annual basis and will be set to renew automatically each year.
Create a new domain
To purchase a domain, you can follow these steps:
- Jump to the Avoori Portal by visiting: https://avoori.com/portal and click on the domains on the horizontal toolbar.
- Click on the Add New button and select Get a New Domain. You will be redirected to a page to search for an available domain.
- Search to find if the domain name of your choice is available and its pricing. We would recommend that you choose a short and memorable domain, one that your visitors will be able to remember.
- A list of domains will be presented to you, simply click on the available domain to purchase it.
- You will receive an email confirmation of your purchase. The domain is automatically verified using Avoori’s platform, so you don’t have to manually verify it. After the purchase, the purchased domain usually becomes available only after a few minutes, although in some cases it may take up to 24 hours for your domain to become available.
- Once your domain is ready, you will see it in the list of the available domains in the Avoori User Portal.
If you don’t have an account, then you can go to Avoori Domains and just search for the domain name directly there and then follow the same steps as above.
Should I Verify my domain?
Well, the short answer is no. You don’t have to verify your domain because we do it for you.
After purchasing a domain name on Avoori, you’ll receive an email of confirmation detailing your purchase. Your domain name will then be automatically verified using Avoori’s platform without you having to manually verify it.
After your purchase, you might want to wait for a few minutes up until 24 hours for your domain name to become available.
Once your domain name is verified, you’ll find it on your list of available domains on your user portal on Avoori. You can manage your domain names all in once place under your user portal and can connect them to any website by simply clicking on “connect to site” or manage them by clicking on “manage”.
To connect a domain purchased with Avoori to an Avoori website, you don’t need to have any knowledge in DNS. Avoori takes care of this process for you.
Our rate always stays at the same low price. You will pay exactly the same for the renewal of your domain every year. This means that there are no unexpected surprises, your domain always renews at the same attractive low rate.
As it’s been mentioned briefly before, our domains are set to auto-renew when the year has passed. You can always cancel this option by going to your user portal > Domains > and selecting the domain name you wish to stop auto-renewing > and clicking on cancel auto-renew.
If you disable this option, then you might forget renewing after a year passes which is why we’ll be sending you 30 days prior the domain expiration date an email reminding you of your domain renewal.
What If I forgot to Pay?
After the domain expiration date passes and you fail to renew your domain, a countdown of 3 days will start. Your domain name will be active for these extra 3 days and on each day your credit card will be charged to attempt to renew your domain name, if it doesn’t get charged and you don’t pay during these three days, your website won’t be connected to that domain name any more, if you have a parking page, then it won’t lead to that domain name anymore.
Will my domain name still be available on Avoori?
Even after your domain expires and is no longer available on your user portal, you’ll still be able to purchase it once again on Avoori. It will be available for you if you want to buy it again but if you don’t get your hands on it before someone else does, then it might no longer be available.
Will my website no longer be available?
Your website will still be available even if you don’t pay for your domain name, but, it will be linked to the first subdomain you got the first day you created the website.
Note: When your domain expires it is released to Dynadot, the website that manages and registers Avoori’s domains. To reactive it, you will have to request a renewal through Dynadot and, if they can renew it, you will be able to reconnect the domain to your Avoori website as a third-party domain.
Unfortunately, at this point, the renewal price is no longer controlled by Avoori, being up to Dynadot. There is likely a 30 days “renewal grace period” where you are still able to renew your domain at their regular renewal price. After this period, you might still be able to restore it at a much higher price. However, sometimes expired domains are sold by Dynadot at auctions and cannot be repurchased anymore.
To best way to avoid this trouble and preserve your domain is to keep your auto-renewal activated and ensure that your credit card can be charged when the year ends.
I’ve never used Avoori before. Can I still start with an Avoori Domain?
Yes, of course. Avoori domain is for everyone and for anyone out there who wants to purchase a domain. It’s also a great way to get accustomed to Avoori and know your way around it before you start your own website.
You’ll understand the interface and will have an easier time building your website when the time comes. You’ll be able to customize your parking page and learn the basics of our page designer as well.
You can also get a 24/7 assistance for your parking page in case you need any help with it.
I didn’t find the domain name I was looking for
There might be times where you don’t find the right domain name because it’s already purchased or because it’s a premium domain.
You can always look at domain names that you think are suitable and that are available.
Can I buy a domain as a gift or switch the ownership of my parking page?
No, unfortunately, that’s not possible. Parking pages can’t change from an owner to another which means only you, the purchaser of the domain, could use that parking page. You could move the domain name to a new website or give your account membership to the person that wants ownership over the parking page.
I’m ready to build a full site.
You can always build a website whenever you want to by going to your user portal and domains, and clicking on “connect” to connect the domain name to the right website. You can create the website on its own where it’ll come with a subdomain, and then connect it to the right domain name.
Each website you create comes with a 14-day trial to help you get accustomed to the platform, and if you need more exploring, then you can extend your trial by another 14 days. At the end of your trial, you’ll be asked to activate your website in order to finally access the features you need and grow your online presence.
Can I Get a refund on my domain name?
No, unfortunately, you can’t. Once the purchase is done, your domain name is yours and will continue to be yours for the rest of the year.
You can still choose not to renew it the next year.
Can I buy multiple domains?
Yes, you can. You can buy multiple domains at once on Avoori. All of them will be verified automatically and they’ll also be available on your user portal and will all be redirecting to a parking page of their own.
You can always connect them to a website later or just leave them with a parking page. They’ll also be set to be renewed automatically the next year unless you change that.
