Domain names are virtual addresses allowing anyone to quickly find a website on the Internet. If you have spent any amount of time online, you have likely already used a domain name and did not even realize it.
A domain name is the text you enter in the address bar of your browser. Something like example.com is a domain name. You can think of it as being similar to a house address. It allows anyone online to find you using that name. No one else can get a specific name once you register it (and continue to renew it).
Every website on the Internet requires two things no matter what: a domain name and web hosting.
Every domain consists primarily of two parts:
- A top-level domain such as com, org, or net appearing to the right of the dot. There are hundreds of new top-level domains available to register. You must choose a name from one of the available top-level extensions.
- A second-level domain is the text appearing to the left of the dot. This can be anything you want it to be. The sky is the limit as long as it is available with the corresponding top-level domain you choose.
Registering a domain name is a pretty simple process with the MojoEngine domain search tool but you will want to consider some strategies for picking a good domain name. Then enter search terms you’re interested in and select from the names available for registration.
