What is a domain?

If you’ve ever been on the internet (which you probably are right now), then you already know what a domain is. 🙂

A domain is the unique address of a website. For example, the domain for Google is www.google.com. And, the domain of this website is www.getawebsite.co.za

Domains (or URLs) are unique for every website. This gives you an easy way to remember where to find a website in this crazy world they call the internet.

Why do I need a domain?

If you want to have your own “property” on the internet, you need an address, just like your home address. Except, on the internet this personal (and unique) address is the domain.

Something to remember is that just because you have an idea for a website, the domain you want may not be available. Somebody may have already registered this domain. So now you have to come up with a new and easy to remember domain.

Why easy? Well, when telling your friends and family to visit your new website is easier when you tell them to visit “www.mysite.co.za” then “www.comevisitmywebsiteinsouthafrica.co.za” 🙂
