7. What's wrong with a .com domain ?

Nothing. However, the top level domain .com was originally intended for COMmon "commercial" entities. A domain name is the Internet equivalent of your call letters or slogan online. On the Internet, your domain name acts as both an extension of your station, as well as your address. It directs your listeners and clients to the place where they can visit your station online, find out more about the jocks, or even listen to your station LIVE Online.

10. How long after a registration application is submitted will it take for a name to become active on the Internet and how will you be notified?

When your registration is successfully processed, you will be notified immediately at your billing email address. It is important that the billing email address be a working address or your registration may fail. Your name will become active on the Internet within 24 hours of that notification. If no payment authorization is received within 72 hours, however, your domain name will be deactivated and deleted from the database.

11. I've updated my DNS records and my site still does not work ?

The most likely reason for this problem is that it normally takes 2-4 days to propagate the new DNS information and clear DNS cache. This time depends on the TTL (time-to-live) settings for your domain at your previous host and the time when DNS entry was cached. Sometimes, it takes more than 4 days if the TTL was set unreasonably high by your previous host. In some cases it may take as long as 7 or 10 days to clear the cache.

During this period the mail and HTTP requests may be coming to either the old or new servers. There is no control over it and nothing can be done to speed up the process. If this is not the case and it has been more than 7 days since the domain record had been updated, please contact your ISP to solve the problem.

12. What is the BRS Media domain policy concerning trademarks and registration of names in the .FM Top Level Domain?

BRS registers domain names on a "first come, first served" basis. By registering a domain name, BRS does not determine the legality of the domain name registration, or otherwise evaluate whether that registration or use may infringe upon the rights of a third party. BRS Media neither acts as arbiter nor provides resolution of disputes between registrants and third party complainants arising out of the registration or use of a domain name. This dotFM Domain Name Policy ("Policy") does not confer any rights, procedural or substantive, upon third party complainants. The entity applying for a domain name ("registrant") is solely responsible for selecting its own domain name ("domain name") and maintaining for the continued accuracy of the registration record. The registrant, by completing and submitting the dotFM Domain Registration Agreement ("Registration Agreement"), represents that the statements in its application are true and that the registration of the selected domain name, to the best of the registrant's knowledge, does not interfere with or infringe upon the rights of any third party. The registrant also represents that the domain name is not being registered for any unlawful purpose. From more information on the terms of registering a .FM top level domain Click Here

BRS Media is an exclusive agent for FSM Telecom for purposes of managing, marketing, and registering FSM Telecom's top level domain, .FM to the broadcasting and internet industries.
