A domain name uniquely identifies a website. Typing a domain name (also called a URL) into your web browser allows you to visit that website. One unique domain name can be used as a company’s website address and for its email addresses. Domains are much more than just names typed into a web browser. Your domain name is how the world will think of you and your business. It’s part of your brand and your marketing plan. You can have multiple domains that each relate to some aspect of your business. A domain name can be easy to remember and help establish you on the web.
Anatomy of a Domain Name you most often see domains listed as www.mycompany.com or www.buydomainname.com. A domain consists of two main parts. Let’s use www.BuyDomains.com as an example: The first part, “buydomains” This is the unique part of the name. It represents your company or brand name. It is how you will be branded and known on the web. The last part is called the extension In our example it is “.com.” Other popular extensions are .net, and .org. Many people will automatically type in .com after any domain. Securing the other extensions can make sense for many people, as they help protect your brand throughout the web.
One of the good reasons to have a domain name is to have personalized email, either for your business or for personal reasons. An email is a unique address, followed by your domain name, such as “firstname.lastname@example.org” or “email@example.com.” You can often create multiple email addresses for each domain you own, so that each member of your company has their own address.
