If you're thinking of creating your own website, whether it's to market your roofing service (such as Millard Roofing, or to promote your tent rental business perhaps; you're going to have to first register for a domain name. In the world of computers and the Internet the name of a computer or network, which it is hooked up to, is considered a domain. Whenever you type in a website in full in a browser you probably know by now that they all end in some sort of "dot com" like fashion. Whether it's .ca, .com, .org, .edu, etc. Those endings of a website are domains and each ending of a domain will tell you what type of website it is.

A .com or .ca domain is commercial, a .gov domain has to do with the government, an .org domain means organization and an .edu domain is for educational institutes. Now that you know what domains are let us provide you with the information you need to register your very own domain name about acrylic paints for instance. Domain registration is one of the easiest things to do because it doesn't involve all that much work.

The first step is to come up with a few domain names you'd be happy with. You don't want to pick out only one domain name for your soon-to-launch website just in case it's already in existence. Having a few options makes certain that you'll be able to register at least one of your desired domain names. Once you have your domain name choices picked out it's time to visit one of the many domain name registrars to get the process started.

One of the easiest and most popular domain name registrars out there is GoDaddy.com; you probably know it from all the commercials on tv. Their domain name registration process is simple, affordable and painless and involves you picking out your domain name and the length of time you want that particular domain name registered for. From there you can sign up for other options relating to your domain name like web re-direction, starter pages, parked pages, and "for sale" pages. Once your domain registration is completed you'll be the proud owner of a domain name and you can then start on the process of building your perfect website for it.
