Every domain name has a suffix that indicates which top level domain (TLD) it belongs to. There are only a limited number of such domains. For example:
· gov – Government agencies
· edu – Educational institutions
· org – Organizations (nonprofit)
· mil – Military
· com – commercial business
· net – Network organizations
· ca – Canada
· th – Thailand
Because the Internet is based on IP addresses, not domain names, every Web server requires a Domain Name System (DNS) server to translate domain names into IP addresses.
When selecting a domain name:
- Select a short and easy to spell name
- If your business name is unavailable get creative but stay simple and clear.
- Purchase other domain names that can be redirected or forwarded to your primary domain name.
primary = iammomentproductions.com
forwarded domain names: iamomentproductions.com(missing “m”), iammomentproduction.com (missing”s”)
If your domain name has words that can easily be misspelled or an ‘s’ forgotten then purchase the mistakes too.
We recommend that you purchase your domain name from a separate company than where you are hosting your website. This makes it much easier if need be, to change your domain name provider or server in the future. Purchase your domain name prior to purchasing your hosting service so that you can point your domain name to your hosting service upon set-up with costumer service.
