Gem3 Web Hosting Information:
If you will be hosting your domain with us, then you may select the default hosted servers at the time of your domain registration.
You retain complete control of your domain and may host your registered domains here with us or elsewhere with the web host of your choice. All transferred domains will have at least one year added to their existing expiration date; there is no need to wait until the last minute to transfer your domain.

Domain Registration PayPal Information:
We have both a manual and an automated method to accept PayPal payments for domain registration services. To decrease fraud, the automated registration system only directly accepts PayPal if you have associated a credit card with your PayPal account. (The card does not need to be used for payment.) If you do not have a credit card associated with your PayPal account, you can still order domain names using the manual system below.
To register your domain right now using the automated system, click here.

Manual PayPal Domain Registration Instructions:
If you wish to order your domain registration using PayPal, but do not have a credit card associated with the account, please check for name availability, but use the PayPal payment button below to pay. Please enter your domain name(s) as the payment description and include the appropriate cost per name, usually $8.99 for most registrations. See the pricing table above.
Important: Please include your Name, Address, and Phone Number in the notes. Domain registration requires you to be entered into the Global Domain Registry Database. If you fail to include any of this information you will simply delay the registration as we email you to ask for it.
If you live in the U.S., be aware that our automated system also takes direct eCheck payments from any U.S. bank account. This will let you avoid the delay of us manually verifying the transaction.
PayPal Possible Registration Delay Information:
Payments from your PayPal balance are sent instantly.
When sending money directly from your bank account with PayPal and no credit card is associated with the PayPal account, PayPal will send an eCheck instead of an instant payment. This will result in a delay of multiple days (normally three to four) before the funds are actually sent to us and your domain name is registered. This is a PayPal account funding policy and we have no control over it. We accept PayPal eChecks; we just wanted to make sure you understood how they work.
The domain remains available for domain registration until the PayPal payment funds arrive and we process the next batch of manually-posted registrations. If you are registering a domain and are concerned that someone may register it during the PayPal eCheck funding period of time, please pre-fund your PayPal account so you can send an instant payment or use one of the faster payment options available.
If you will be sending an eCheck payment and live in the U.S. vicinity, you may wish to choose the electronic check payment option in our automated system instead. Because of the arrangement with the electronic check processing company, it will process the registration immediately.
Please let us know if you have any questions!
Helpful Hint: If you are shopping for domain names and are not able to send instant payments, you may wish to pre-fund your PayPal account with around $10.00 so that when you find the name you like, you can have it registered immediately without payment delays.
