A domain name is the online address for your website. The IP address is a unique string of numbers and other characters that is used across the Internet to access websites from any device or location. Think of a domain like a contact number in your phone. Instead of typing a series of complicated numbers (IP address) into a browser, you type in a domain name. A domain name can be followed by many unique TLDs, giving you a chance to stand out online.
Since there are so many domain name options to choose from, the first thing you want to check is that your chosen domain name is still available. To begin, you will enter the domain name in the search box and then click “Search” for your results. When the search is complete, if your domain name is available, you’ll be directed to a page where you can review and purchase it. In the event your domain name isn’t available, GProductions can provide several variations and extensions of that domain name for you to choose from.
Choosing a domain name is important for your website because it represents your brand or business online. We recommend choosing a short domain with relevant keywords so visitors can easily access your website. While your domain can include letters, numbers or hyphens, you’ll want to avoid any special characters so it’s easy to remember and type into a web browser.
When you choose GProductions Hosting as your domain provider you are given the ability to create a fully customizable website. We feature various domain name extensions that empower you to make a website reflective of their blog, brand or business. You can use our domain finder to search and select a domain that will get you one step closer to starting your website!
