What is a Domain Name ?

A Domain Name is used to identify the location of a Website on the Internet.

You link your Website to your Domain Name so people can find your web pages.
(like the way people find your business premises using your street address)
Your Web address is called a universal resource locator or URL - this would look
something like
www.mydomain.com.au

If you are going to mount pages on the internet it is a good idea to have your own
domain name as this gives you a unique and distinct web presence.

Using a Domain Name ...

You can promote your presence on the internet by registering a domain name.
Used in conjunction with Web Hosting the Domain is important as it forms parts
of your web and email address - i.e. you can send and receive email and access
web pages using your own domain name.

Example: A business with the registered business name Vorgan's Organic Produce
and the registered domain vorganic.com.au can set up mail boxes like:
This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it and This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it and have their web pages
accessed via the address www.vorganic.com.au

If your present web or email address is based on the name of your Internet
Service Provider ( ISP ) it makes it difficult for your customers to remember your
Internet Address as these type of names are usually longer and more cumbersome.
e.g. www.myispbusinessname.com.au/myusername/files.htm
