More About Domain Names

A domain name is the foundation of any great website. It's more than just your address on the Web, it's also your online brand, which is why choosing the right domain name is so important. You want something that's unique, but still reflects your personality. Thankfully, with several top-level and country-code domain names to choose from, your options are virtually limitless.

.COM is, far and away, the most popular domain name extension in the world. It's the natural first choice when you're launching your own online presence, but it's far from the only option, especially depending on the type of site you're creating. Charities and other non-profits tend to choose .ORG for their domain names. While it's not as well known as .COM, .ORG was one of the original domain extensions on the Web and, being short for "organization," it's developed a reputation for being trustworthy. Other top-level domain extensions are even more specialized, to the point of being restricted to the average consumer, such as .EDU (education), .GOV (government) and .MIL (military).

Another option for domain names is country-code TLDs. Some of these are obvious, such as .COM.NG for Nigeria or .CO.UK for the United Kingdom, while others have found a niche market of their own. .TV is the official domain extension for the island of Tuvalu, but thanks to its memorable abbreviation, it's become popular with video hosting sites across the Web. And of course, there are domain extensions that were created for specific purposes, such as .BIZ for business, .MOBI for mobile and .JOBS for employment information.

Whatever you want to do with your domain register it, promote it or sell it Nigerian Webhosts can help.
