While everyone is talking about how to build a website, do you just want to know the basics like exactly “How Can I Get a Name for My Website”? Yes, that is the most important question and often one that gets overlooked while focusing on the design and coding aspects of site development.
A “website name” is referred to as a Domain Name in the industry. To get your name you first need to check if it is available, as many names are not available for a variety of reasons such as another company purchased earlier – often they are from other countries and industries.
IF you search for your name and it is not available – here are some tips to help you pick a good domain name for your firm.
After you pick your domain name you will need to “register” ie buy it from a domain name registrar company such as Blue Host
While you will pay money, you are only really purchasing a “registration fee” that gives you the license to use that name for a period of time, usually one year. Subsequent years will require additional registration fees to continue to have the use of that name for your company website.
