What is a Domain Name?

How do I choose a Domain Name if I don’t have one?
Choosing a domain name is an important decision as it represents your online identity.
Your domain name should reflect the purpose or content of your website. If it’s for a business, ideally, it should include the business name or describe what the business does. It should be short and simple. If possible, incorporate relevant keywords that describe your business, product, or services. This can help improve your website’s visibility in search engine results.
How do I register my Domain Name?
The first thing is to find out if the domain name you want to use is available. This is similar to registering a company name. Registering a domain name involves purchasing the rights to use a specific domain name for a specified period, typically one year or more. There are numerous domain registrars where you can register a domain name, one example is GoDaddy.com and search for your domain name. If it is available, you can buy it on-line.
