What is a domain?

A domain is your website’s specific address, 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.

.com

The most common .com ending is still a strong choice.

.org

Used for nonprofit and charitable organizations worldwide.

.info

Great for sites that have informative or educational content.

.store

A great option for ecommerce sites.

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 steer clear of numbers and hyphens.

If your ideal domain is taken or you have a common name, try adding more words to describe yourself (like johnsmiththebaker), or choose a different domain ending.

Use words that match your business or location. For example, if you’re a wedding photographer from Austin, austinweddingphotos.com is a good start.

Domain FAQ

* When you purchase a Jimdo plan, we grant a reduction in price of $/€ 20 for the first contract term, which is equal in value to the cost of a domain. Upon renewal, your selected plan will renew at the regular price. We'll remind you of the exact cost via email 6 weeks prior to your contract renewal. The duration and billing terms of the domain depend on the duration and billing terms of your Jimdo plan.
