Domain Names Defined
A domain can make or break a website. Get it right and everybody will remember it forever, get it wrong and they will never remember the name of your web site. Hence, you should pick a domain name that is directly associated with your web site's content, your own personal name or your company's name. For example, the website of Essential Hosting – a popular ICANN-sanctioned domain name registrar and shared hosting company, is http://website-essentials.com. This domain is instantly associated with the name of the company and with web hosting services in general, making it easy for Essential Hosting's business associates and clients to find it online.
More than 50 TLD extensions to pick from
But remember that your personal or corporate domains do not necessarily have to end with .com, where options are restricted. Actually, there is an almost boundless set of Top-Level Domain extensions to pick from, among them .MOBI – for web sites intended for mobile device use, .TV – for media websites, .NAME and .ME – for personal websites, .CO, .NU and .WS – considered as .COM alternatives, and virtually any country-specific domain that comes to your mind. A UK-based web site might gain higher popularity if it uses a .CO.UK TLD extension. On the other hand, if your business is in Canada or the United States of America, .CA or .US might be a more suitable choice.
