Domain Basics

Every web site has to have a name, this is the domain name. It's the address that you use to reach the web site. This address is also called the URL, which stands for "uniform resource locator". To have a web site, you have to register a domain name. It can be your business name, your personal name or anything else.

Often times, you will see the domain name preceded with "www", which stands for "world wide web". Most of today's new browsers don't require you to use the "www" prefix which reduces the amount of typing needed to reach a site.

All domain names must have a suffix. This suffix can be a ".com", ".net", ".org", or the new suffix ".name". The ".com" suffix was created for use by commercial ventures but is really used by everyone. The ".net" suffix was created so that more names were available. The ".org" suffix was intended for non-profits. And the new ".name" suffix was created to allow people to use their own names as their domains. You can choose any name you want as long as it's available for registration.

Domain names are "registered" (think of rented) on an annual basis. The price goes from $20 to $35 per year and they can be registered up to 10 years at a time.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

1) Why do I need a domain name?

A domain name is the name of your website. It is the name that people will use to find your website.

2) How do I choose a domain name?

The domain name is the way that people find your website. Try to make the domain name descriptive. It could be your company name (or abbreviation), your main product or related to some other aspect of your business.

3) How long should I register my domain?

You should register your domain for as long as you can afford. Longer terms typically cost less thereby saving you money but more importantly doing it every year or every other year is time consuming and a little hassle.

4) What happens if they name that I want is not available?

This happens frequently as people have been selecting names for over 20 years already. You should choose an alternative name that will satisfy you.
