Registration Process in to simple, easy to follow steps. Learn how
to choose a Domain Name that is right for your needs and how to
easily register your Domain Name through the proper Internet Domain
What is a Domain Name?
In order to establish a web site or web presence on the Internet,
you first have to complete the Internet Domain Registration Process
to own a domain name. A domain name, such as "web-host-guide.net",
is a unique name that is the identifier to your Internet Web Site.
Before you can select a Web Hosting Plan from a Web Hosting Service
Provider, you must choose an applicable domain name for your Web
Hosting intent. (Choose fast, because the good ones are going quick).
Domain names are the names that you type in on your web browser
to take you to a particular web site, such as www.web-host-guide.net
Domain names may refer to names on the Internet that are represented
by a individual, a business, charitable or not for profit organizations,
educational institutions, state and federal governments, as well
as many other types of entities.
Certain Domain Name extensions, like .edu, .gov, .mil, may only
be used by relevant organizations.
How to choose a Domain Name
While there are many varying opinions on what criteria you should
use in choosing your domain name, the following guidelines hold
true for whatever name you choose:
A good Domain Name is:
easy to remember
short and sharp
meaningful - conveys a clear message
easy to spell
unique, descriptive, and specific to your intent
As basic, descriptive Domain Names are becoming very rare, you
may have to come up with different iterations of the name that you
Domain Names may range in length from 2 to 63 characters, not including
the domain suffix, (.net, .com, .edu, etc.). Any letters in the
alphabet may be used, as wells as numerals 0-9. Domain Names can
also include a hyphen (-), and a underscore(_).
Choosing a Internet Domain Registration Service
A Internet Domain Registration Service Provider is an entity that
registers your Domain Name. The Domain Name Registration Service
Provider may be a ICANN-accredited domain registrar such as Network
Solutions, (which I do not recommend), GoDaddy.com - who I personally
use, or a Web Hosting or Internet service provider who has legal
authorization as a network registrar.
As there are a lot of providers offering Internet Domain Registration
Services, choose wisely.
