Domain Names Defined

A domain can make or break a website. Get it right and everyone will remember it forever, get it wrong and they will never memorize your site's name. So, you should select a domain name that bears direct relevance to the content of your website, your own personal name or your company's name. For example, the web site of 121Direct – a renowned ICANN-authorized registrar and shared hosting company, is https://mccm.co. This domain name is instantly associated with the company's name and with web hosting solutions in general, rendering it easy for the company's partners and clients to discover it online.

More than 50 top-level domain name extensions to pick from

But remember that your private or business domain names do not mandatorily have to end with .com, where choices are restricted. In fact, there is an almost limitless set of domain name extensions to pick from, among them .MOBI – for mobile sites, .TV – for media web sites, .NAME and .ME – for personal sites, .CO, .NU and .WS – considered as .COM substitutes, and almost any country-code TLD that comes to your mind. A UK-based site might gain higher popularity if it employs a .CO.UK TLD. On the other hand, if your business is in Canada or the USA, .CA or .US might be a more clever choice.
