What is a domain name?
It's your identity and address on the World Wide Web. It is the first step to a personalized e-mail or towards owning a website. Friends, relatives, business partners and clients can type your domain name in their web browser and can visit your website.
Why do we need a domain name?
Registering the domain name is the first and the foremost step to start setting up an online identity. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Name and Number (ICANN) is responsible for controlling IP addresses and their associated domain names. It also maintains a list of domain name registrars. Domains are allotted on first come first serve basis. Once a domain name has been registered, it is no longer available to anyone else until it expires automatically or is freed up by the registering authority.
Tips for selecting the domain names.
- It is always great to have a domain name same as the organization's name.
- Avoid using long domain names, make it short so that it is easy to remember and fast to type.
- Try to make sure that the selected domain tells about the type and nature of your business.
