What are Domain Names
A domain name can make or break a web site. Get it right and everyone will memorize it for good, get it wrong and they will never memorize the name of your website. Hence, you should select a domain that is directly related to your site's topic, your personal name or your company's name. For instance, the web site of artichosts – a renowned ICANN-sanctioned registrar and hosting company, is http://artichosts.com. This domain name is instantly associated with the name of the company and with web hosting solutions in general, making it easy for the company's partners and customers to find it online.
Over fifty Top-Level Domains to choose from
We offer more than 70 tlds
But keep in mind that your private or business domain names do not mandatorily need to end with .com, where options are limited. In fact, there is an almost endless assortment of Top-Level Domain extensions to pick from, including .MOBI – for sites intended for mobile device use, .TV – for media websites, .NAME and .ME – for personal websites, .CO, .NU and .WS – considered as .COM substitutes, and almost any country-code top-level domain name that crosses your mind. A UK-based website might gain greater popularity if it employs 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 smarter option.
