A domain name, or simply domain, is similar to a home address in real life. It’s how people find your site online – they enter the domain in a web browser or search engine. Alrawihost.com is a domain, just like Google.com and Facebook.com. Ideally, a domain should be registered under the same name as the brand it’s representing.
It is important to have domain names to help potential visitors find your site. Without assigned website names, we would only be able to access them by entering their IP address, which is more difficult to remember. While performing a domain search to look for a good name, you can include keywords or brand names.
Some of the best practices for purchasing domain names include the following: Length. Keep it short. Two to three words is ideal. Simple. Don’t use any lengthy or hard-to-spell words. Keywords. Include a keyword from your niche. For example, if you sell coffee beans in Seattle, try Seattlecoffeebeans.com. Avoid numbers. Numbers are hard to remember and make everything more complex. Brand name. Buy a domain name that includes your brand for maximum recognition.
No, once you register a domain, you cannot change it. However, you can purchase another domain name and move your website there.
The minimum registration period for domain names is one year. With AlrawiHost, you can also register .com, .net, .org, and other domains for up to three years. If you want to make sure that your domains are always registered to you and keep your website available online all the time, we recommend setting up automatic renewal.
