Immediate brand recognition, Great marketing benefits, Trust and authority and SEO advantages
When you’re trying to launch a website online, one of the most common questions you’ll ask yourself is “what is a domain name?” Essentially, it is the unique web address that browsers use to find your company or organisation on the internet. It can be used in a website, such as www.mybusiness.com, and in an email address, such as email@example.com instead of the usual @gmail email. Domains for sale can be used for business purposes as well as personal or non-commercial means. They usually have up to 63 characters, without spaces, and including the letters A to Z. You can also include hyphens, and the numbers 0 to 9. So, if you have a company in Sydney called ABC Travel and Tours, a good website name is www.abctravelandtours.com.au Both expensive and cheap domain names have two parts—the main domain and the Top Level Domain (TLD) or the domain extension. In our example above, the main domain name is “abctravelandtours” and “.com.au” is the TLD.
Every website has a corresponding IP address, which is a set of numbers used to locate a server where that website is hosted. When you’re looking for a particular website, your browser will need the IP address of that site so it can fetch the webpages and show them to you. The problem is that remembering a long set of numbers for every website you want to visit can be quite difficult, not to mention time-consuming. To make the user’s life easier, domain names were created as human-friendly equivalents to IP addresses. Each domain for sale is assigned to one unique IP address. When you type a domain into your web browser, your computer will check a DNS server—a super computer that acts as a database for all IP addresses and their corresponding domains—to obtain the specific IP address of the site you want. Once it is found, your computer will fetch the site and display it through your web browser.
