What Is A Domain Name?

A virtual world without domain names can be very confusing. You can actually get lost and never find your way back. You won’t be able to find what you’re looking for without these very important domain names.

Simply put, a domain name serves as one’s address on the Internet. In the World Wide Web, every website has its own domain name so that visitors can quickly find it and drop by. This domain name is the URL that you type in that search box of your browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.

It serves as the upfront designation that web users can easily recall and spell, unlike with the actual IP address that’s very technical and difficult to remember. Oftentimes, the IP address is hidden from users.

Domain names include your chosen website title plus “.com”, “.net”, “.org”, and the like. You can choose a short description of what your site is all about, the name of your company, or even your own name. It really depends on your purposes.

For example, you can choose www.healthwellnessguide.com for your health and wellness blog. You can pick www.homeworkhelper.net for your tutorial services online business.

Make sure to have plenty of options for your domain name so that you can end up with a unique one that nobody else has bought or started using already before you.
