Domain Names Defined
A domain can make or break a web site. Get it right and people will memorize it for good, get it wrong and they will never memorize the name of your web site. Therefore, you should pick a domain name that is directly associated with the content of your web site, your personal name or your company's name. For instance, the web site of Asterhost.com – a well-known ICANN-accredited domain registrar and shared hosting provider, is https://www.asterhost.com. This domain name is immediately associated with the company's name and with web hosting solutions in general, making it easy for Asterhost.com's business partners and customers to find it online.
50+ top-level domain name extensions to pick from
But don't forget that your personal or corporate domain names do not necessarily need to end with .com, where choices are limited. In fact, there is a practically unrestricted selection of domain name extensions to choose from, among them .MOBI – for mobile websites, .TV – for rich media sites, .NAME and .ME – for personal web sites, .CO, .NU and .WS – regarded as .COM analogs, and practically any country-code domain that crosses your mind. A United Kingdom-based web site might enjoy higher popularity if it employs a .CO.UK top-level domain name extension. However, if your business is in Canada or the United States of America, .CA or .US might be a more appropriate option.
