Web Terminology 101

Domain name
A domain name is the name of a website. If someone asks how to find you online, what you tell them is your domain name.

Examples of domain names: Google.com, Facebook.com, Amazon.com

When creating a website you will need to purchase a domain name. Anyone can purchase a domain name from a registrar. After finding a domain name that nobody else is using, you pay an annual fee to own and register it. While there are many domain name registrars, we recommend Google Domains. The main reason why is because there are other services Google provides which can enhance your online presence, so it only makes sense to keep things simple and accessible all from one account. It is likely you may already have a Google account, and if not, setup is simple.
