A Guide To Domain Name Registration




Are you considering doing business online? If you’re affirmative about that then, you need a home for
your site on the Internet first, for that you’ll have to  register a domain name.


A domain name provides your website an Internet address.

Under the Domain Name System DNS, domain names are framed of the four elements – a server prefix, a
domain name, a domain suffix or extension, and a country code (optional). For instance,

www.jasssony.com is an example of a domain name where ‘www’ is theserver prefix,‘jasssony’ is the


domain name and ‘com’ is the domain suffix.

‘Dot-com’ is an example of a top level domain extension. There are generic top level domains, gTLDs,

and country code top level domains, ccTLDs. Register a  domain name of your own.

Many ‘Internet Service Providers’, ISPs and Web Hosts also offer free or bargain-rate domain services that essentially make a domain
name an extension of theirs. For example, if the ISP is a fictional like

‘youneedweserve’, then the resulting domain name could be  www.youneedweserve/jass/index.html. While registering your own domain name, make  sure that the extension name should look like a professional one. With an  extension domain name,


you always have to change the ISP or web host.

Many people do not realize it, but it is a fact that the names on the Internet  really matter. Choose a domain name that identifies the business and it should  also be easy to remember;

so many people type the names or partial names into  search engines for finding the site that they are seeking for. Most of the best  or obvious domain names are already registered by the people.


You should also  consider the facts when you are choosing a domain name for the online business  and how to register a domain name.


Registering a generic top level domain name or a country code top

level domain,

the things mostly depend on the market for the product or service. For example, if you are selling your product or services to USA, you can use the country code  top level domain,

dot-us domain. If you are marketing the products or services globally, you can choose to register the online business as a dot-com or a dot-biz.
