What are Domain Names

A domain can make or break a website. Get it right and everyone will remember it forever, get it wrong and they will never memorize your site's name. So, you should settle on a domain that bears direct relevance to the content of your site, your personal name or the name of your company. For instance, the website of Tierra Hosting – a renowned ICANN-sanctioned domain name registrar and web hosting provider, is https://tierrahost.com. This domain is instantaneously associated with the name of the company and with web hosting solutions in general, rendering it easy for the company's business partners and customers to find it on the World Wide Web.

But bear in mind that your private or business domain names do not necessarily need to end with .com, where choices are limited. As a matter of fact, there is a practically unlimited array of Top-Level Domain extensions to pick from, including .MOBI – for web sites intended for mobile device use, .TV – for media web sites, .NAME and .ME – for personal sites, .CO, .NU and .WS – thought of as .COM substitutes, and almost any country-code top-level domain name that comes to your mind. A United Kingdom-based site might gain bigger popularity if it uses a .CO.UK Top-Level Domain. On the other hand, if your business is in Canada or the US, .CA or .US might be a wiser choice.
