Domain Names for you

computer-02Your domain name is the name you are known by on the Internet. You can get a domain name by registering the name you want to be known by with a registrar. The registrar keeps the domain names organized and makes sure there are no duplicate names in use. Every  domain name on the net is different. The DNS (domain name servers) use the domain names to direct traffic to your website. Their are 215 million domain names currently registered on the Internet. 

One thing to remember is that a computer can’t spell, so when you register your name, please check that it is spelled the way you want it. If you spell it wrong and purchase it the spelling error becomes yours. There are no returns for domain names any where.

When you choose a domain name you can have any letters or numbers you want, if available,  but you can’t use punctuation marks except the dash(-) or the underscore (_). You can use capital letters or lowercase, it doesn’t make any difference. 

Keep in mind that the name you choose should be easy to remember, easy to spell, and meaningful to your potential market. It should mean something to your clients and your staff.
