What is the domain?
A domain is the name of a website. For example, www.google.com, here www = World Wide Web and a domain name are google.com.
A little easier to understand. Think, you want to start a business again. The first thing you would do is choose a proper and beautiful name for this business. And a trade license for that name. Now you can use this name for your business
Just need to choose a name for your business online. This name will bear the identity of your business. And this name is the domain.
First commercial domain
First commercial domain name is Symbolics.com. It was first commercially used on 15th March 1985 for Cambridge’s computer firm Symblicics for their website.
Domain name length must be between 63 characters.
- Alphabetical letters, a to z, lowercase letters.
- Number of characters between 0 and 9
- Hyphen (-) can be used but the domain name must start and end with an alphanumeric character. A hyphen is not allowed at first and last position.
Generally, the domain has more than one part. One name is another extension. For example www.simpletrick.com, here is www host’s name, simpletrick is domain name and .com domain extension. Various types of extensions are available according to the type of website. Such as:
- .com is generally used for company websites.
- .net is used for one or more networks.
- .org is used for any organization/organization’s website.
- .info used for personal or informative websites.
- .me is usually used for portfolio websites.
- There are also many more extensions.
Considering aspects of the domain, there are different types of domain. Such as TLD, gTLD, SLD, ccTLD etc.
Country Code Top Level Domain, the last part of this domain name adds two letters of its country name. Such as Bangladesh .bd, India .in, America .us, Pakistan’s .pk, United Kingdom .uk,
Top Level Domain, the highest level domain category on the Internet domain system. We see more of these types of domains. Top Level Domain is .info .com, .org, .net, .me, etc.
Second level domain, a domain name that comes before dot (.) For example simpletrick.com, here SLD is simpletrick.
Generic TOP Level Domains The domain of a top level is class but which is not associated with any country. Such as: .com, .net, .org etc.
How to choose the best domain name
1. Priority to .com Extension Domain
There are several types of extension for domain registration. Initially people were familiar with the .com, .net, .org domain name but with the change of time different extensions came. Now, if you want to name the specification, you can take Extension. Such as .pizza, .photographt, .travel, .ninja etc. But as an online blogger I always suggest .com domain extension to use.
2. Choose easy to type Name
Try to choose a name that is easy for all time. Such as blogger.com, twitter.com, facebook.com, wikihow.com, youtube.com.
Notice the top domain names. Sites can be easily typed and each site is easy to understand. To avoid always unnecessary words in the domain name selection.
3. Choose a simple and short name
Always choose a simple name. The name will be as easy and small as it will be good for your user. I would suggest having a maximum of 8-10 characters in the domain name.
4. Do not take domain with a keyword
We all research keywords before creating the website. In this case, we often put the main keyword in the domain, which is called EMD (Exact Match Domain). This can give you Google Penalties if your site content is of low quality. For example: if you are going to do an e-commerce site, you have taken a domain name for keyword related. Such as organicfruits.com, organicfruitsStore.com
But there are some disagreements here. Because we still see that in some cases EMD is preferred if your content is of better quality.
5. Find out more about domains
Before registering a domain name, make sure that your selected name is trademarked, copyrighted, or used by another company. Because otherwise, you may face major legal complications.
For example, you can not use Google, Facebook, in this type of domain. Because they are trademarks and their names copyrighted. So before registering a domain name, please check these issues.
6. Ensure own branding
To protect your brand, you can always purchase the remaining extensions of your domain name. In this case, you can buy at least TLD – Top Level Domain. This will help keep you ahead of others.
7. Quickly Buying a domain
Domain names are sold very quickly. And we do this mistake most of the time. Remember, a good domain name will not always wait for you. So, please register your favorite domain name as soon as possible.
These sites will help you find the right domain name.
How to buy domain-hosting?
You can buy your preferred domain name through credit card or debit card.
