A domain name is a unique name that identifies an internet resource such as a website. It is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control on the Internet. Domain names are formed by the rules of the Domain Name System (DNS). Any name registered in the DNS is a domain name.
Registering a domain name builds your credibility on the Internet. Use domain names to support your business and assist in creating a dynamic online presence. Your domain name establishes your online identity and increases branding, marketing and communication opportunities.
A fully qualified domain name (FQDN) is a domain name that is completely specified in the hierarchy of the DNS, having no parts omitted. Domain names are usually written in lowercase, although labels in the Domain Name System are case-insensitive.
Register multiple domain names to:
Keep your competition from registering a domain name that draws customers away from you.
Promote the products and services you offer.
Drive more traffic to your website.
Enjoy more opportunities to market to — and be listed on — search engines.
Create distinct advertising strategies to reach different target markets.
Provide customers more ways to find you on the Internet.
Protect your brand and online identity from unsavory parties.
To get started, check to see if the domain name you want is available. If available, register the domain name for a period of time you specify during the checkout process.If the domain name you requested is already registered, we provide available alternatives. For example, you might be able to select a ..net or .co domain extension, rather than .com. Or you could register www.yourcompanyname.info instead of www.yourcompany.com.
