The web has become an essential part of everyday life. Your domain name is your identity on the internet. The Internet is a vast network of millions of interconnected computers. Each of these computers is assigned a unique address called an Internet Protocol (IP) address - just like a telephone number.
The Domain Name System (DNS) helps users to find their way around the Internet. The DNS makes using the Internet easier by allowing a familiar string of letters (the "domain name") to be used instead of the IP address.
One of the most important things you can do for your website to ensure higher placement in the search engines and an easier way for people to find you is to register your own domain name. If you own your company, you should carefully select your domain name, as it represents both your storefront and your online address. Not only should the name you choose be descriptive of what your site entails but it should also be easy for people to remember so they can come back to it easily. You may research domain names using our Domain Availability feature.
