Domain Name

Choosing the right domain name deserves a lot of consideration. In addition to being your address on the web, they will (at least, they should) appear on all of your advertising, your letterhead, packaging, vehicles and products. You and your employees will verbally communicate your name, time and time again. Your "music on hold" systems and any broadcast advertising you do should say your web site address.

  • A domain name is your address on the web. The proper name is Uniform Resource Locator, commonly called a URL. Other name "location" (used on some browsers), or just plain address.
  • The complete domain name, e.g., http://www.fullname.com, is composed of several parts. The first part - http:// - means HyperText Transfer Protocol, the protocol used to link text on the web. The "www" means World Wide Web, the portion of the Internet you are accessing. The last part – fullname.com – in our example, is known as the upper domain. This is how particular sites are found on the web.
  • For those with a technical bent, the upper domain is actually an alias for your Internet Protocol address, or IP address for short.  An IP address is kind of like a phone number that follows the format "x.x.x.x." where x = a number between 0 and 255…, as an example. The upper domain is listed in router tables around the world that equate your domain name to your IP address. When someone enters your domain name in the their browser, routers keep routing the request for your web page to other routers that keep the request moving toward, and ultimately to the machine that serves your domain name.
