What are Domains

A domain can make or break a website. Get it right and people will remember it forever, get it wrong and they will never remember the name of your website. Hence, you should opt for a domain name that is directly associated with the subject matter of your web site, your personal name or your company's name. For instance, the web site of Helios Host – a popular ICANN-certified domain registrar and hosting provider, is This domain name is instantaneously associated with the name of the company and with hosting solutions in general, making it easy for Helios Host's partners and clients to find it on the Internet.

But remember that your private or corporate domains do not necessarily have to end with .com, where options are limited. Actually, there is a practically limitless assortment of domain extensions to choose from, among them .MOBI – for mobile web sites, .TV – for media sites, .NAME and .ME – for personal websites, .CO, .NU and .WS – thought of as .COM analogs, and practically any country-specific domain name that crosses your mind. A UK-based website might enjoy bigger popularity if it employs a .CO.UK TLD. However, if your business is in Canada or the USA, .CA or .US might be a more suitable option.
