What is a Domain Name?

A domain Name is a unique id of a company, organization or a unique person that can be used in order to have a number of transactions take place on the Internet. Domain name is a name we choose in order to connect with a computer on the Internet in the fastest as easiest way possible. This word is also defined by a end part (TLD) which defines its point of origin. In this case for a domain name ending in [.com], this domain name will have a format of name.com and in order to find the website under which this site is built you simply type into any web browser http://www.name.com

If you have requested a domain name during sign up, please keep in mind that your domain name will not be visible on the internet instantly. This process is called propagation and can take up to 48 hours. Until your domain has propagated, your website and email will not function.
