What is a domain name?

A domain name is a shortcut to a computer on the Internet. Computers are typically identified by an IP address such as 69.73.138.253. This number can be hard to remember, so names are assigned (e.g. www.innovativesolutionsonline.com). The last part of this name, "innovativesolutionsonline.com", is called a domain name. There are many kinds of domain names, but the kinds available to most users are top-level domains (TLDs). These domain names end in .com, .net, and .org. These names used to be restricted to companies, network providers, and non-profit organizations. This restriction has been removed and anyone can register a name under any domain. Recent developments have introduced new TLDs: .biz, .info, and .name.


What are the rules for naming a domain?

The name before the suffix can be up to 63 characters long. The name can consist of letters, numbers, and the "-" punctuation mark. The name cannot begin or end with a hyphen. The name cannot contain any other punctuation besides the hyphen…this includes the space character.


Do I need a website to register a domain name?

No. It is actually a good idea to secure a domain name before someone else does. Names are currently registered at the rate of one every five seconds! A name that is available today might not be tomorrow. It is already very difficult to find an obvious ".com" name. A good domain name also gives you a unique presence on the web. It's not necessary to have a ".com" name for a business, but it helps. People are more likely to associate the two.


Why do I need a domain name?

Instead of an address like www.yourserviceprovider.com/yourcompany, your website will have an address like www.yourcompany.com. And rather than having an email address like yourname@yourserviceprovider.com, you can have an email address like yourname@yourcompany.com. A domain name creates an Internet presence for your company and is a form of inexpensive advertising.

We are able to offer these services by purchasing multiple names at wholesale prices and pass the savings on to you.
