Domain Names Explained
A domain can make or break a web site. Get it right and everybody will memorize it for good, get it wrong and they will never memorize the name of your site. Hence, you should opt for a domain name that is directly associated with the content of your web site, your personal name or the name of your company. For example, the website of Blue Gel Media – a well-known ICANN-sanctioned domain name registrar and shared web hosting provider, is http://www.bluegelmedia.com. This domain name is immediately associated with the company's name and with hosting services in general, rendering it easy for Blue Gel Media's business partners and clients to discover it on the Internet.

But remember that your personal or corporate domains do not necessarily have to end with .com, where options are limited. Actually, there is an almost unrestricted range of domain name extensions to select from, including .MOBI – for mobile web sites, .TV – for multimedia sites, .NAME and .ME – for personal sites, .CO, .NU and .WS – thought of as .COM equivalents, and almost any country-code domain name that crosses your mind. A United Kingdom-based site might enjoy bigger popularity if it employs a .CO.UK Top-Level Domain extension. However, if your business is in Canada or the United States of America, .CA or .US might be a finer choice.
