CHOOSING A DOMAIN NAME

What makes a good domain name?

A good domain name should be easy to remember, easy to spell, and preferably short.

The name of your company is always a good choice.

If your desired domain name is already taken, you can search if the .com or .net variation is available. You may also use hyphens to create unique domain names.

WHAT IS A DOMAIN NAME

Like a telephone number, a Domain name is a unique identifier that points to a certain site on the World Wide Web. Each computer on the Internet has a unique numeric Internet Protocol address such as 66.249.89.104. These numbers are not user-friendly and give no indication as to what this address contains.
A domain name is a mnemonic that is not only a lot easier to remember but that could also indicate what the Web Site contains. It is easier to remember Choicehosting.co.za than 88..208.221.42 and, if you are in search of a website hosting company, you have a fair idea that this site will contain information that you would find related to the topic.

Typically, Domain Names operate like telephone dialing codes in reverse. The first portion of the name points to a specific site, the second points to the broad category the site falls in and the third portion is the country code where the site is registered. For example, absa.co.za refers to Absa Bank's Web site. This site is registered in the commercial (co) domain in South Africa (za).

In all countries there are Domain Name Servers, computers that will take the Domain Name and look up the relevant Internet Protocol Address and feed this address back to your computer so that it can connect with the site you wish to visit.
