Domain Questions

1. What is the difference between .com, .net, .org?

Each TLD (Top Level Domain) has a general meaning.

.com = Commercial (for-profit) websites

.net = Network-related domains

.org = Non-profit organizations

Using a domain that best describes your business would be best. The most common are .com, .net.

    Q. How do domain registrations work?

    A domain name does much more than naming your business. Domain names define the location of your business on the server. There are millions of websites, all of which need specific identification to find their files. People like words and computers like numbers. So the domain name system translates your name to a number called an IP address. The IP address is issued by your hosting provider and is something a computer can understand.  

    When someone clicks on your domain name, it is immediately translated into your numerical address. And the search goes on to find the specific location of your website. Once found it displays your website. All this in seconds.

    The primary domain name should have the following.

    • Short
    • Descriptive
    • Easy to remember
    • Easy to spell

    Don’t forget you can also secure similar names. As an example, let’s say you get the domain name, mybusiness.com. You can also get mybusiness.net, mybusiness.org, mybusiness.club, and so on. That way, you are covered. You can learn more on the domain page.

    You can register a domain by first searching the name’s availability. If the name is available, you will receive congratulations, click the add to cart button, and complete your purchase.

    Q. What are premium domains?

    A premium domain name is a high-quality domain that investors often buy and sell with the aim of making a profit. These names have a variety of qualities that allow them to outperform others in the critical function of a domain, helping users find the website they’re looking for.
