What is a domain name?

Every website has a specific name to identify it on the World Wide Web. Like your home address, it consists of different parts. The domain name has to be unique and lead to only one specific website. That is why you have to check first if your desired domain name is free and not already claimed. Any web address begins with „www“. This is an abbreviation for World Wide Web and is the gateway to the internet. Nowadays, domain names do not necessarily have to have a „www“ in front because web browsers will recognize it automatically. The next part, the Second Level, is the most important recognition factor – the domain name. Think of a domain name that best reflects the content and subject of your website! The last part is the Top Level Domain, and it can be generic (.net, .com, .org) or geographic (.us, .ca, etc.). The TLD gives your website a special designation on the web. You can only register a free domain name that has not already been claimed. To check if your desired domain name is available, use the 1&1 domain checker.

Create identity with a free domain name

The domain name is the centerpiece of your website. Pay attention to finding a free domain name, but make sure it serves the purpose you want it to! For a business website, it would be important to try to use your company's name or close to it. Make sure it corresponds to your company and reflects the content of your website. An eCommerce site that sells the latest trendy merchandise will most likely have a more creative name than that of a law firm or realty group. The best domain name solutions will probably consist of either the name of your company or some sort of appropriate abbreviation. Choose your TLD with care. For example, no one would expect an eCommerce site to have a .info TLD, so choose wisely. It is also possible to choose more than one TLD for your free domain name.
