What is a Domain?
The first of 3 required steps in getting your organization on the Internet is to immediately create and
register an Internet domain name (or "domain"). A domain name is a unique address that Internet users will enter into their
Web browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer
or Netscape Navigator), to access your Website on the
Internet. You may also use that registered domain name as an
email address once the domain is actually hosted
(click here for hosting information). For example,
cje.com is a registered domain name that uniquely identifies
C. J. Enterprises, Inc. (CJE) on the Web. Our domain is entered into Web browsers as
http://www.cje.com. It is also used in our email addresses
(i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org). Domains are typically renewed on a yearly basis, unless a
prepayment arrangement has been made. But as long as a domain name is registered, no one else may
use that domain unless specifically allowed by the domain registrant.
Over the past few years, good domain names have quickly become very scarce commodities. Finding and
registering good domain names has become a lengthy and frustrating process, with a variety of
strategic factors to consider. Often times the inexperienced domain seeker will windup registering
MANY different domain names before eventually securing the ONE domain that they will actually use;
resulting in a great deal of wasted time and money.
