What is a Domain?
A domain name is a unique address that can be used on the Internet. The location of where your website DATA resides will be identified as an IP (Internet Protocal) address in the form of 174.120.114.98 but not easy to remember, similar to your personal ID number. To make it easy for all the Domain Name you choose in the form of yourcompanyname.co.za points to this IP address, making it easier for clients to remember your domain location / name, just like people call you on your actual name and not your ID number.

It is what you see in the address bar after the www. in your web browser and it is what comes after the @ sign in an email address. Domain names consist of two parts. For example in isp365.co.za the .co.za represents what is known as the top level domain (TLD) and isp365 represents the second level domain and is the actual name. The same name, which can be up to 63 characters long can be used with different TLDs, such as .com / .org / .net etc. There are also country specific Top Level Domains such as .fr for France and .de for Germany. When a domain name is used in a web address, www is usually put in front of it to indicate that typing that name into your web browser will take you to a website. Domain name holders can set up a website with that address and also use it for email addresses.

Choose the Correct Domain Name
The domain name you choose is very important to your marketing strategy and should be directly related to your company name or services & products on offer where possible. No matter how big or small your company might be at this stage, it will gro. The correct choice will assist potential clients to access your company website, but the wrong choice can potentially lead clients away to competitors. Keep it simple and descriptive and try to use normal characters only, if possible.

At ISP365 we can assist you with making the right choice. Once chosen your digital and physical marketing campaigns will rely on your chosen domain name which will also become your email address extensions which will most probably be listed in Yellow Pages, printed on business cards, advertising signage banners, display boards, vehicle signage, etc. which as you can see will become very expensive once you decide to change your companies Domain Name in the future.

Domain Name Extensions
The Domain Name Extensions or Top Level Domains (TLD) options you have vary from ISP to ISP as well as country to country and each with its own core focus on a specific business sector. The general perception is to choose one most descriptive to your current location. Should your client base be International, then the .com will be a good option for your DATA will be more accessible to your global clients, but your local customers might use more international bandwidth to access your site content.
