Anyone looking to start a website will need to know how they go about registering a domain name. The name of the company must match up to the address of the domain. When you register a domain name it will show the site has been taken or it is available.
There are companies that can ensure you get the right domain name assigned for your business. All major hosting and domain registrars can find out when the name is up for renewal and how long the domain is active. When a company uses the same domain name for their website it gives them more credibility. There are other organisations that will use the same domain name so always find a reputable domain and hosting company that can help.
Another thing when it comes to buying a domain that when you by in bulk you save more money. Always buy the domain for more years it is not lowers the cost of the domain but it gives a company more credibility in SEO. Aim to buy a .com domain name address rather than .org, .net or .biz unless you work in a certain sector then thats fine.
Getting a domain name involves registration the name you want with an organisation through the domain name registrar. The domains company will have other tools on their website if you want to create your own site. The next part is to get hosting and there are three options available for businesses to use that are shared, dedicated or VPS hosting.
Shared hosting is lowest cost in all hosting types although if your website is mission critical and serves a main purpose for your business you would require dedicated hosting. VPS is slightly lower in cost than dedicated though this is run on a secure server. In the same way buying a domain name is structured in same fashion when you buy hosting for than a certain number of years it will save you more money.
