What is a domain name? Your domain name is your web address. Just as we have street addresses for our home, domain names are addresses for our websites. This is the identity of your website, its home, its place to live on the web so to speak.

In order for someone to find your business on the web, you need to have a domain name. Buying a domain name is not hard to do. All you have to do is pick the right name for your company keeping in mind that buying a domain name requires much forethought. Buying domains can help your business growth but can also kill your business if you don’t buy the right domain name that reflects the product or criteria of your companies needs. Buying domain names is quite easy if you follow a few simple rules of thumb. By making sure you do your research, use good judgment that the domain name will identify with your business, you will have a successful domain.

One of the first things to do when you check into buying a domain name is to find out how much the domain name is going to cost or how much it will cost to register a domain name you already have in mind. You should be able to successfully register your domain name for $10 and under per year. You can register your domain for as long as you see fit, but it is always advisable to make a long term commitment and buy a domain name for at least 5 years.

I would suggest only buying a domain that consists of letters even though numbers and hyphens are allowed. By using more characters, a mixture of letters, numbers and hyphens, you make your domain to become hard to remember. Thus, you may possibly be pointing potential clients to competitors with similar domain names. You are allowed up to 67 characters when buying domain names, but you really should keep it short. The shorter the domain name, the easier to remember.

One other way to buy domain names is to resell it in future. Not always are you buying a domain name to benefit your company, you may want to check into buying domains to resell and make a profit.

Here are a couple tips for buying cheap domain names for resell
1. Research before registering the domain name
2. Look to buy domain names that are going to be easily related to markets that you can turn around and sell easily
3. Make sure that any domain name that you buy is free of trademark infringements
4. Once you buy the domain name, make sure that it is marketed and registered
5. Make your domain name stand out
6. Resell your domain name once it has been appraised

Either way, regardless of whether you are buying a domain name to promote your business or if you are trying to make a business buying and selling domain names, most rules apply to both. You need to do your research before you buy any domain name for whatever reason. Make sure that the name you choose is going to benefit the need. Keep in mind that most companies that sell domain names also provide other services as well, such as web hosting and domain buying. You may have a one stop shop at the click of your finger if you do proper research.

The word domain has numerous varied connotations. In general, people using it typically are referring to some sort of territory. Of course these days, it is also common parlance in internet or information technology where it would refer to a machine or possibly virtual host which you find on the Internet. It is also noteworthy that the name of a domain (known as "domain name") is often mistaken for the domain itself.

The term is also frequently used to describe an area of control as well as a sphere of knowledge. In biology on the other hand domain denotes a particular subdivision which is bigger than a kingdom.

In mathematics, you will find that the term would typically mean the domain of a given function. These are just very few of several possible meanings of the term 'domain'.

A domain name gives a website its own unique web address where it could be found at and associated.It is an identification string that defines the realm of administrative authority, on the Internet.An important function of domain names is to provide easily recognizable and memorizable names to numerically addressed Internet resources.

Domains are defined by the IP address. All devices sharing a common part of the IP address are said to be in the same domain.
