Simply put, you register for a domain name and it allows surfers
to find your site on the Internet.
A domain name can be .com, .org, .net, .ws, .tv, .cc
.com name refers to a company's web site
.org refers to an organizations web site
Net refers to a network
Ws is an excellent alternative to the popular .com web site
TV refers to a rich media, streaming video web site
Cc refers to a country code web site
There are fully qualified domain names and subdomain names. A fully
qualified domain name is a name you paid for and registered. A sub
domain is a domain name you did not register. For example, a fully
qualified domain name would be starting-business-online.com and
a sub domain would be a Geocities, Tripod, or Hypermart web site.
Every real business has their own fully qualified domain name.
How can you expect customers to buy products and services from you
if you don't even have your own domain name? When picking a domain
name pick something short and to the point, and something easy for
your customers to remember.
