Domain name registration, a user friendly start for your website

Without domain registration, you will be unable to start a website. It does not matter whether you want to create a corporate portal or a personal web page. A domain name is required irrespective of the type, size and content of the website. Domain registration can be best explained by drawing analogies with cars. You need a registration plate on your car to avoid troubles. You also need a domain to secure your niche in the web space. You can compare web hosting with roads and highways. You need those to drive your vehicle on. The same is the case with web hosting that will enable you to run your website.

How to Register?

Every country has its unique set of domains. For the United Kingdom, “.uk” is the top-level domain though it is not necessary to have this domain for your website. You can also follow the international “.com” or “.biz” or “.info” depending upon your nature of work. In the UK, domains are allotted by registrars who work under permission from the government. You need to register with these entities so as to secure a specific name and location for your website.

There are many types of registration options available. You can buy a domain for short- and long-term use. You can also rent a domain name. The latter is a popular option among those who are new to web design and want to take a cautious approach. You will need to pay monthly or yearly fees depending on the type of contract you have signed with the registrar.

There will be no issues of stolen identities once the domain is registered. You can start building your website and focus on content and technical aspects. A permanent domain will help you in creating customer loyalty as your website will act like your brand name.
