DOMAIN NAME SEARCH and REGISTRATION
Once you find someone to host your website (ie. store your website files on their server), you need to come up with a domain name. This is that familiar name which always follows the www in a website address. The best domain names are short, descriptive, and to the point so that they are easy for your visitors to remember.Some good domain name examples are:
cntower.ca. The ending after the dot simply helps to describe the type of site you have (commercial, educational, government, organization, etc) or the country of origin (Canada). When picking your new domain name try to avoid using odd short forms, uncommon acronyms, and words which are often misspelled.
Once you have settled on a domain name which will become your website’s address, then it is time to check if that name is still available or if someone else is already using it. Remember that your website address must be unique. No two websites can have the same domain name or address. So your next step is the domain name search. There are many companies on the internet which can do this for you (even for free) and some are listed at the bottom of this page. If your chosen domain name is available then you are in
luck and can proceed with domain name registration. Often these companies will search, register, and even host your website.
