What are Domain Names

A domain name can make or break a website. Get it right and people will remember it for good, get it wrong and they will never memorize your site's name. So, you should come up with a domain that is directly connected with the subject matter of your site, your personal name or your company's name. For example, the web site of NextLink Cloud – an acclaimed ICANN-approved domain name registrar and web hosting company, is https://nextlinkcloud.com. This domain is instantaneously associated with the company's name and with web hosting solutions in general, rendering it easy for the company's partners and clients to find it on the Internet.

But bear in mind that your personal or business domain names do not necessarily need to end with .com, where choices are restricted. Actually, there is a practically limitless choice of top-level domain name extensions to pick from, among them .MOBI – for web sites intended for mobile device use, .TV – for media sites, .NAME and .ME – for personal websites, .CO, .NU and .WS – regarded as .COM equivalents, and practically any country-specific domain name that comes to your mind. A United Kingdom-based web site might gain higher popularity if it uses a .CO.UK Top-Level Domain extension. However, if your business is in Canada or the US, .CA or .US might be a more suitable choice.
