A domain name is nothing more than your website’s name or address. It’s how customers find and contact you online. Think of it like a contact on your phone. Each phone number you add is assigned a name so that it’s easier to remember.
Choosing a domain name is important for your website because it represents your brand or business online. We recommend choosing a short domain with relevant keywords so visitors can easily access your website. While your domain can include letters, numbers or hyphens, you’ll want to avoid any special characters so it’s easy to remember and type into a web browser.
Since there are so many domain name options to choose from, the first thing you want to check is that your chosen domain name is still available. To begin, you will enter the domain name in the search box and then click “Search” for your results. When the search is complete, if your domain name is available, you’ll be directed to a page where you can review and purchase it.
This is the process of reserving your chosen domain name, making sure no-one else can use it for the period it’s registered for.
You can’t permanently buy your domain name. You instead lease the name for as long as you like, via a hosting service like Verpex.
