What is a domain name and how to buy one | 123-reg

Watch this video to learn what a domain name is, why you should own one, plus the steps to registering your perfect web address at 123-reg.

A domain name is the name of a website and it’s made out of the subdomain “www” which stands for “World Wide Web”, followed by the domain name and the extension.

So, whether you want to create a blog where you can share your knowledge and advice with the world, or a website where you can sell products and/ or services, a domain name is a must if you want people to be able to find you online. Just make sure you choose one that’s short, easy to remember and relevant to your blog or business.

When you own a web address, you also get to create a personalised email address using your domain name such as [email protected], which makes online communication more professional.
