Domain Names Defined

A domain can make or break a web site. Get it right and everyone will memorize it for good, get it wrong and they will never memorize your website's name. Hence, you should pick a domain name that bears direct relevance to the topic of your web site, your own personal name or your company's name. For instance, the website of Hostomedia – a popular ICANN-approved domain registrar and shared hosting provider, is https://hostomedia.com. This domain is immediately associated with the name of the company and with hosting solutions in general, rendering it easy for the company's business associates and clients to discover it on the World Wide Web.

Over 50 top-level domain names to select from

But keep in mind that your personal or business domains do not mandatorily need to end with .com, where choices are restricted. Actually, there is a practically boundless assortment of top-level domain name extensions to select from, including .MOBI – for websites intended for mobile device use, .TV – for TV or video-related websites, .NAME and .ME – for personal sites, .CO, .NU and .WS – considered as .COM alternatives, and virtually any country-code top-level domain name that crosses your mind. A UK-based web site might enjoy greater popularity if it employs a .CO.UK top-level domain name extension. However, if your business is in Canada or the United States of America, .CA or .US might be a more suitable option.
