A domain name is your website address. It is what people use to get to your web site. It's similar to the address on a letter when you mail the letter it arrives at the address listed. When a person enters your domain name (web address) on the internet they end up at your web site. An example is our domain name web address: www.perfectwebsites.com
Basically, you have a few choices as to the type of web domain name you want:
1) Obtaining a company's domain: (http://www.therecomany/yourname.com)
2) Obtaining a free web domain name: (http://redirect/yourname)
3) Registering your own domain: (http://www.yourname.com)
Ideally, you'll have your own domain name. It is the same as branding your business or product. It is easy for your customers to use and remember, and it gives your business a professional image. It is recommended to choose a domain name that is good, simple, and memorable. Instead of going through the inconvenience of numerous search engine results to get exactly what customers want, most people will attempt to go to your site directly by guessing your domain name and typing in a plausible URL (web address) in to their browsers.
Of course, the drawback is that it is more expensive to obtain and may be costly to host the site. If you are on a limited budget, you can use one of many free web names that are offered. We will gladly register your domain name and park it free of charge if desired.
