Choosing a Domain Name for your online business
Here is where we explain the background behind
Domain names, how to find a name for your web site, and how to
register for your exclusive use.
In order to allow Internet users to access
your eCommerce website, you will need to find an Internet
name, also known as a "domain name", for your business. Domain
names allow surfers to type in a URL, such as
www.mybusiness.com, and access your web site.
Most Internet names begin with www, which
stands for World Wide Web. The second part (eg mybusiness) is the one you
have to come up with. You can use
letters, numbers or dash ("-") in your name. The
name must be at least 2 characters long, not start or end with
The last part is called the
top-level domain. The most popular top-level registrations are .com,
.net and .org:
.com - is used for commercial and personal
.net - typically used by Internet
.org - used by non-profit organizations
.biz - another business designation
.info - for information related websites
There are also country codes such as:
.co.nz (New Zealand)
The country codes are used if you are
setting up an eCommerce web site specific to a country.
