A domain name is a unique name, linked to a unique IP address where people can access your website. Computers use IP addresses, which are a series of numbers.

If you want to host a website, you should seriously consider registering your own domain name. A domain name is a name like “mycompanyname.co.za” or “mycompanyname.com”.

Not only companies can register a domain name, but also individuals.

A domain name can be any combination of letters and numbers followed by a domain name extension, for example, .com, .net, .co.za and more.

Your domain name is your unique identity. Any entity, whether individual or business wanting an Internet presence should have a domain name. Having your own domain name, website and email addresses will give you and your business a more professional feel. Another reason to register a domain name is to protect copyrights and trademarks, build credibility, increase brand awareness, and search engine positioning.
    When choosing your domain name you need to put a lot of thought and careful consideration into it. Here are some tips to help you decide what domain name to register for your business:
    1. Make it easy to remember The easier it is to remember, the easier people will find your website.
    2. Use keywords Pick a name that best describes your business and/or service you offer.
    3. Use your area It helps to include your area if your business is local i.e. CapeTownMTB.co.za
    4. Do your homework Make sure the name isn't already in use i.e. trademarked, copyrighted etc.
    When it comes to business it is extremely important to have a personalised email address. In short, this is what it means to potential customers:
    • Custom email address = you’ve created a real business
    • Your old gmail.com or yahoo.com email address = this is your weekend hobby
    • It helps strengthen your brand
