Domain Names Defined

What is a domain? Your domain is the entryway to your website. Without a domain, your site will be isolated from the Internet world. To establish your spot on the World Wide Web, the most influential community we know these days, you should pick a domain name that best illustrates your personal or business profile and that will work for its popularization. The more appealing and easy-to-memorize domain name you choose, the more people will appear on your website's doorstep to visit you.

It is not Bad to Know that...

Domains and website hosting services invariably go hand in hand. Without a hosting service, the domain names themselves will be nothing but... trivial names. A domain name has value inasmuch as it is combined with a website, which is made available online owing to a certain web hosting service (shared, VPS or dedicated). In short, this service is called 'domain name hosting'.
