This entire article is about choosing a domain name (aka the name of the site).
This is where you really need to get started when you create a new website
You can skip this step and do it later, but please understand the following: You cannot have a live site without a name. A designer may perhaps start. You can decide the content of the page and much more.
But without a name, or, more precisely, a domain name, you cannot put the website on the web. It cannot continue to live.
That’s why I put this in the beginning.
So how do you choose a domain name?
Understanding the types of domain names is the first step in creating a website and choosing a name, so let’s start there. Because, first of all, it is important to know what the different domain name options are and whether you should use them.
Dot Com domain names
First of all, if you are a business in the United States or are planning to do business in the world – you need a .com name.
This is the most common and also the most difficult to find domain name.
Because? Like most good ones are taken. But it was worth it because most people assume it ends in .com your website. So without it, people do not always find your site or worse yet, they may stumble accidentally into the wrong website or their competitors!
It is not the end of the world to have another type of domain name. So let’s take a look at some of the other options.
Dot Org or Dot Net domain names
If you want another choice, .net or .org are another option. For example, let’s say you want mywebsite.com, but it’s not available. You could go with mywebsite.net. But you need to understand the original intent of these names. NET has been assigned to the company’s .org network was aimed at non-profit organizations.
There are many other options such as (biz, gov, edu, mil), but most of them are neither not available to the public nor not really applicable. Just go to website for domain name registration.
