For more information about domain forwarding, see our online help center at 
http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/domains/domainfeatures/forwarding/. 
Can I register more than one domain name? 
Yes, you can register an unlimited number of domain names. 
Yahoo! Domains currently registers .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, and .us domain names. In 
addition to .com, many businesses register the .net and .org variations of their domain 
name.  
Having multiple domains allows you to:  
  
Register all the extensions of your domain, such as .net, .biz, .info, and .us 
  
Reduce misdirected traffic by registering common misspellings of your domain 
  
Sign up for vanity domains to make your business or web site even easier to find 
online 
By searching for and selecting additional domain names, you can order more than one 
domain name at a time. A Yahoo! Domains account will be set up for each domain name 
ordered. Each account has a separate Domain Control Panel. 
What if the domain name I want is already taken? 
If the domain name search results reveal that the web address you want is already 
registered, this means that another individual or organization has already secured that 
domain, and that it is no longer available. With the growth of the Web, it s often difficult to 
register the exact name you want; the key is to choose a name that will make sense to you. 
Select one of our suggestions, choose an alternate top level domain (for instance, 
widgetdesigns.net instead of widgetdesigns.com), or think of a variation of the name you 
prefer and try searching again. 
What is a registrar? 
A registrar is an organization that has been accredited to register top level domains (TLDs) 
  that is, domain names ending in standard extensions such as .com, .org, or .info. Your 
domain name registrar is responsible for maintaining your domain registration records, 
managing your domain renewals, and other administrative details. Yahoo! s domain 
registration partner, Melbourne IT, is the registrar for all new domains registered through 
Yahoo! 
When you register a domain name, your registrar submits technical information surrounding 
your domain name to a central registry; the information stored in this registry allows other 
computers on the Internet to find your domain, making it possible to view your web site or 
send you email.
