Guide to Domain Names

Domain NamesDomain names are the start of something grand online. They are much like a street address, in the sense they tell people where to find you. Unlike your street address, which you have little to no control over, you can create a domain name to match the brand of a website. They come in various shapes and sizes, with the most common being .com. Others include: .org, .net, .edu, and .gov. Depending on the registrar, you can find them for as low as a couple dollars a year, with most of them around $10/year. You can buy, sell, and trade them, making them a powerful income resource. To learn more about them such as: how to register, how to transfer, how to choose the best one for your website and more, check out this excellent guide.
