What is a domain name?

A domain name is registered within the Domain Name System (DNS) and basically states that an entity has authority over a particular space in the internet. A domain name is an address on the internet and allows your website to be found. Similar to a physical address, a domain name tells people exactly where to find you on the internet.  So my domain for this website is smallbizinternetsolutions.com.

Other domain names I have are:  meetjuliamitchell.com goglobal247.com,  thescrapbookingblog.com, memoriesforlife.club, juliamitchell13.net

Every domain name has a suffix that indicates which top level domain (TLD) it belongs to. There are only a limited number of such domains. For example:

  • gov – Government agencies
  • au – Australia
  • edu – Educational institutions
  • org – Organizations (nonprofit)
  • mil – Military
  • com – commercial business
  • net – Network organizations
  • ca – Canada
  • th – Thailand

Domain names are used in URLs to identify particular Web pages. For example, in the URL http://www.sunshinecoastsocialmedia/toolbox, the domain name is sunshinecoastsocialmedia.

I have a confession to make, for a while there I was addicted to buying domain names :)

How to choose a domain name?

A domain name should be related to your business name, brand, product, and/or activities. Make sure it fits on a business card and is easy to remember whether seen in print or mentioned over the phone.

  • Choose a domain name that includes at least one keyword that relates to the content on your site.
  • Don’t worry about length, just make it memorable.
  • Make the Domain Unique.
  • Avoid Hyphens and Numbers.
  • Make it easy to type and easy to remember
