Domain Names Defined
A domain name can make or break a website. Get it right and everyone will remember it forever, get it wrong and they will never remember your web site's name. Hence, you should choose a domain that is directly related to your website's content, your own personal name or the name of your company. For example, the website of Webgear Hosting – a popular ICANN-authorized registrar and shared web hosting company, is http://www.webgear.biz. This domain is instantly associated with the name of the company and with web hosting solutions in general, making it easy for Webgear Hosting's partners and clients to discover it on the Internet.
More than 50 Top-Level Domains to select from
But remember that your private or corporate domains do not mandatorily have to end with .com, where choices are restricted. In fact, there is a practically unlimited range of domain name extensions to pick from, including .MOBI – for web sites intended for mobile device use, .TV – for multimedia websites, .NAME and .ME – for personal websites, .CO, .NU and .WS – regarded as .COM analogs, and virtually any country-specific TLD that crosses your mind. A UK-based web site might enjoy higher popularity if it employs a .CO.UK TLD extension. On the other hand, if your business is in Canada or the US, .CA or .US might be a more reasonable option.
