A good website can bring visitors, who can be converted into potential customers later. With more and more people using the Internet, most businesses have gone online to promote their brand or products. An effective website can help you attract visitors.
For it, you need a professional website designing company to help you create a visually attractive website that can help you generate quick responses in the form of inquiries and get more clients or customers.
Nevertheless, a good website cannot bring customers by itself, rather it asks for a suitable and easy to remember domain name. You can buy domain online to help prospective customers identify your business.
How to buy a domain online?
As you know, a website is a basic platform on which a visitor or a customer can get an idea about a company. It showcases a company’s achievements in the business sector and gives a clear idea about the company’s vision, mission, brand and products to the visitor who does not know much about the company.
A domain is the address of a website to help the Internet user find it easily. To buy a domain online, you need to find an appropriate one that is available with a domain registrar, which is also a webhosting service provider.
To buy a domain of your own, all you need to do is to contact web hosting service, choose a desired name, check the availability and register it. Such companies are known for offering specialized services such as domain name search and registration, domain renewal, transfer, WHOIS domain service, private registration, and so on.
Other than the domain name registration, they also offer hosting services like:
- Web hosting
- WordPress hosting
- Linux servers
- Custom servers
- DNS hosting
- Transfer hosting
- Dedicated servers
- Window servers
About domain name
A domain name consists of two parts and they are second-level domains (SLDs) and top-level domains (TLDs)
Second-Level Domains (SLDs):
They include the name that you choose to represent your business or brand name. A perfect SLD will help the visitor remember and access your website easily. When you create a web address, the SLD is placed on the left of the domain extension, and it contains words or letters, which are short, simple and memorable. For instance, domain names such as Billdesk, IRCTC, Zomato, Naukri, etc., are short and simple and easily pronounceable for any one.
Top-Level Domains (TLDs)
Top-level domains are domain extensions that include letters followed by a “dot”. They appear on the right-hand side of the SLD, after the dot. TLDs include popular domain names such as .com, .net, .edu, .org, .gov, .coffee, .cheap, .ninja, and so on.
You can find more than 1500 different TLDs to choose from, and the list is growing with new TLDs introduced every day. However, the cost of TLDs differ based on the popularity and the number of users.
If you are based in India, you can also choose a country specific domain extension like ‘.in’ that helps attract most of the local customers in India. However, the National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI) manages the .IN Registry for the country-code TLD.
