  Your Domain Names - Your Business Web Address

Before you rush out and choose your domain name or name your website, you might want to consider some basic logic. In the modern world of the Internet, where people automatically turn to the Web for information, it pays to have a domain name that reflects your site or business.

A domain name that matches your brand name is very important. The very name that you use to advertise your product is the name that you will want for your domain, because that is the first thing that people will try in their browser. It is also the easiest thing for them to remember.

There are several Domain Name Extensions. They are:

com Commercial - Any business site
net Networks - Internet Businesses - Hosting Company
org Organizations
edu Educational
int International Organizations
mil US Dept of Defense
pro Professionals
biz Businesses - Any Business
info Informational

For any business site except a hosting company (.net) we recommend .com or .biz and in that order. Since the dot com extension has been around longer than others, registering names with .com can be a problem. However a web address with a .com extension is easier for customers to remember.

Be creative, but remember you want your name easy to remember.

All the Hosting Companies we recommend have Domain Name Registration offerings and  lifetime Domain Names.  Usually there is a yearly renewal fee to keep your name. Not so with these companies. (See our recommended hosting companies)
