If you have a web site, you should seriously consider registering your own domain name. A domain name is a name like "www.airwebtech.com" or "www.yourcompanyname.com", which you can use to refer to your website.


Importance

There are a number of good reasons for having a domain name:

  • If you ever change your web host, your domain name goes with you. Your regular visitors or customers who knew your site nameas would not have to be informed about a change of web address (also known as "URL").

  • If you are a business, a domain name gives you credibility. Few people will be willing to do business with a company that does not have its own domain name.

  • If you get a domain name that describes your company's business or name, people can remember the name easily and can return to your site without having to consult their documents.
