The last few weeks we received two emails from “register.com.be”, the so-called organization that manages the domain extension .com.be. If you buy such a domain name, you actually have nothing in your hands.
The extension is promoted as a possibility if the .be extension of your domain name is no longer available. Instead of yourcompany.be you buy yourcompany.com.be for which you pay 29 EUR / year.
Preventing errors on your website through error tracking
How about that?
If you already have a domain name, this is probably www.youwbedrijf.be where you can add subdomains for free, such as shop.yourcompany.be or extranet.yourcompany.be. If you stop the registration of www.youwbedrijf.be , all subdomains will also disappear. So you only pay for the "main domain" and automatically get the rest. In fact, you only buy the right to use a subdomain of www.com.be , purchased by a certain mr. Orak from Sint-Niklaas (you can check this on www.dns.be ).
So don't get caught by this new extension: it only exists virtually and offers no guarantee that you will not lose your money (and domain name). You also do not own this domain name and can hardly claim it if there is a problem.
Shredding the illusion!
So only free subdomains of www.com.be are sold at 29 EUR per year. If the “organization” (a Limited under English law, by the way) has a dispute with its hosting company and it takes out the domain name, you have lost your domain name! The chance that you will be able to change this is small. There is also no agency that can help you.
If you buy a domain name with an official extension, you can always change supplier because these domain names are freely transferable to another registrar. This is not the case for a .com.be because it is owned by 1 organization.
So you actually have nothing in your hands, and if you mention this domain name on all your communication, you have a big problem with a dispute!
What you better do!
So don't get caught and always let your web builder advise you! If your chosen domain name is no longer available, look for a variant or choose another official extension (such as .eu, .com, .org,…) or look for an interesting approach (such as .it for IT companies).
