A domain name is a bit like your physical address in that it’s how people find you out there on the World Wide Web. That’s why we call the bar at the top of a web browser the address bar - it’s where you enter a domain name to find a website.
If a domain name is like your address then the server your website is hosted on is like the physical building. When you create a website, you set your domain name to point to your server so that if people want to find your website, they can enter your domain name and it’ll take them straight there. Without a domain name, visitors would have to enter the IP address (e.g. 87.249.281.92) of your server.
Pretty much every website that you visit uses a domain name. Google.com is a domain name, for example. Facebook is the name of the website and Facebook.com is their domain name.
Domain names come in all shapes and sizes, but the one thing that they all have in common is that they’re made of two parts - the label (i.e. ‘Hostinger’) and the top-level domain (i.e. ‘.com’). A huge variety of top-level domain extensions are available, from country codes (i.e. ‘.co.uk or .de’) to specific codes for sectors like .gov for government organisations and .edu for educational institutions.
On top of that, with over 330 million registered domain names, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which manages the overall architecture of the domain name system, recently recognised the need for a new type of domain name. Because of this, they announced a whole heap of new generic top-level domain extensions (gTLDs), from .bike and .clothing to .guru and .ventures.
The result is that there’s a huge amount of variety out there when it comes to choosing a domain name, but at the same time it can be difficult to find the right one for you or your company. It’s a big decision - and potentially one of the biggest you’ll ever make. And while you can change it later if you need to, it’s usually best not to if you can avoid it.
Once you register a domain name from One VPS or any other approved register, you then secure the rights to use that domain name for a set amount of time.
When your domain registration is completed, the next step is to point it to the server which hosts your website. Please note that it can take up to 72 hours for any changes you make to update depending on your internet provider.
Other great things about owning a domain name are that you can associate it with other services, such as email addresses, you can create subdomains (ie http://subdomain.yourdomain.com) and set forwarders or redirects. You can even purchase multiple domain names and point them all to the same website.
Domain names are also not limited to the provider that you bought from. Similar to the way you can change your hosting provider, you can also move your domain name.
One of the first reasons for needing a domain is for branding. It is a lot more professional to have a branded domain name instead of something like brandname.wordpress.com. Websites that purchase and maintain their domain name tend to be more established and reputable.
Another reason is that it's something you have full control over. When you use other platforms, social media, eBay, Amazon, etc you are fully reliant on those websites and providers. If they decide to change anything from their terms to accessibility or even if the service goes down completely then you could be in trouble. When you have purchased and registered your domain it belongs to you. You have full control over what you do with it and control anything associated with it including email addresses, which servers the site accesses and to sell or transfer ownership of the domain.
This is a hard one with no definite answer. One good thing is that you can register multiple domain names, so no matter what you go with you already own it and not have to worry.
Usually, the best domain names are easy to spell and memorable. Many of the most popular companies named themselves by merging two words together (like Facebook, Snapchat, YouTube, Instagram, etc.). Try different words in various combinations until you find something that’s unique and available.
It is also good to check whether your domain name is available as a username or account name on the various social networking sites. If it is available you should sign up for those services as well with the same username. Nothing would be worse than creating a successful website or brand and then find out that someone took your username before you could.
And remember, that you can always purchase multiple domain names and point them all at your website. This would be helpful if you are not sure whether to get the .net or the .com extension or if you are concerned about people misspelling the name.
Once a domain name is registered you own that domain for the time that you specified, although if required you can possibly sell it or even transfer the ownership to another person.
If you did want to buy a new domain name and use the new that one instead then that is not an issue. You will just need to follow the same steps you did when purchasing your first domain and point the new one to your server.
While it is true that you can change your domain name, it is not the best thing to do. Remember the more you use your domain name and the longer you have it the more powerful it becomes. Every time you decide to change it, you lose a little bit of the value you had at the beginning.
The minimum amount of time you can register a domain name for is one year, but you can also go up to three years if you would like to own it for a longer period.
As well we encourage you to renew your domain name when it does expire. You will get email notifications when it is time to renew your domain. You are also able to set up auto-renewal so that your registration will automatically be renewed as long as your payment method is still valid.
