What is a domain?

A domain is your website’s address and is also called a URL. In most cases, a domain name includes a company name and ending (like .com or .net). A personalized web address strengthens your brand and helps visitors remember you.

Why do you need a domain?

A domain makes your website look professional and builds trust. It represents you and your website. A unique domain name also makes your website easier to find via search engines like Google.


If you want to appeal internationally, then a “.com” ending is still the right choice.


Commonly used for nonprofit and charitable organizations worldwide.


Great for sites that have informative or educational content.

A country-specific domain can differentiate you even more

3 tips to choose the right domain name

Keep it simple. If your domain name is too long it will be hard for visitors to remember, read, and type. Make it easy to spell and try to avoid using numbers and hyphens.

Choose a domain extension that goes with your website. The domain ending you choose will tell customers more about your business. For example, "" shows that you're UK based.

Use keywords that match your business or service. This will help customers find your site. For example, if you’re a wedding photographer from Texas then might be a good option.
