What is a domain name ?
A domain name is a unique name given to each website on the Internet.
For example, mycompany.com.hk OR mydomain.com
Without a domain name, Internet users around the word won't be able
to find your website. Most organisations and companies will have their
own domain name, therefore, other computer users can remember and find
their website easy!
What is the use of a domain
When a domain name is registered by you, you will be the only registrant.
No one can modify or transfer it without your approval. No one can register
the same domain name unless you delete it. Therefore, a domain name
can be used to create a professional image website (e.g. www.mydomain.com)
on the Internet. A domain name can also be used to setup email addresses
(e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) for sending and receiving email messages -
a very professional, popular and convenient way to communicate with
each other in the Intenet!
