A Domain Name is your online address on the internet. Each website has its own unique Domain Name so that it can be identified on the world wide web. Domain Names on the internet are similar to a physical street address in the physical world.
Your Domain Name can help to promote your business or products, protect your name on the internet, and should be easy for people to remember and type.
These are the most common Domain Name extensions used.
Adding the country code (for example .au for Australia) is also recommended.
Consider purchasing various Domain Name Extensions as well as misspelled versions of your Domain Name. This prevents competitors from registering other versions of your Domain Name and ensures people looking for your website will find it, even if they misspell it.
Act fast! Sometimes Domain Names sell very quickly, so once you’ve decided on the name, let’s get it registered!
Website Hosting is the ‘space’ where your website is located, and makes your website available on the internet. It provides the space to store the website content. Without somewhere to host a website, there is no website.
This is also where you get your email addresses from that are linked to your Domain Name. Eg. firstname.lastname@example.org
