Domain Names & E-mail Addresses

In order to have a web site you must first register a domain name. A domain name, ( also called an address) is the unique name (or address) of an Internet site. Subject to availability you can register any name you like. There are various domains available. All addresses must end with their domain e.g, com, .net. This tells you if it is an international domain or in what country the name is registered and to some extent, what type of site it is. All addresses include the domain name of the owner of the site. The domain name of Microsoft in the UK is The address will start www. This stands for World Wide Web. Note that the not part of the domain name although it must be typed in before the domain name when accessing it on the Internet.

The ideal domain name will be short and easy to remember. You do not have to use your company name. If your company name is long it is best to try and choose a shorter alternative. For example a company called ‘Winline Technologies Pvt Ltd’ has a long name. A better domain name would be ‘’

You can also use your domain name as your e-mail address. This looks much more professional than being, for example: Assuming that you have registered ‘’ you would be able to send and receive e-mail using your domain name. For example:’ or’- and indeed anythingyou’.E-mail addresses using your domain name are FREE if we are hosting the website for you and we can also host e-mail using your domain name at very low cost even if you do not have a website.

How long does a registration last? Can it be renewed?

Each registrar has the flexibility to offer initial and renewal registrations in one-year increments, with a total registration period limit of ten years.

If I bought a name through one registrar, am I allowed to switch to a different registrar?

Yes. The Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy, applicable to all ICANN-accredited registrars, provides that registered name holders must be able to transfer their domain name registrations between registrars. You must wait 60 days after the initial registration or any previous transfers to initiate a transfer.

Why it is important?

A domain name represents an Internet Protocol (IP) resource, such as a personal computer used to access the Internet, a server computer hosting a web site, or the web site itself or any other service communicated via the Internet.
