About Domain Names

The domain name is the part of the website address, or Uniform Resource Locator (URL), that follows “www.”. For example, "tech-docs". Your ideal domain name must be short, easy to remember and describes your business.


Choosing a Domain Type

The domain name type is the final part of the domain name. For example, "com". The type of domain name you choose tells your visitors more about your website. The extension can identify the country, or the type of business.

Most extensions are .com. However, it may be more advantageous to identify your company as Irish with a .ie extension.

POPULAR DOMAINS
TYPE
DESCRIPTION
.com
The .com domain names are the most popular domain names in the world. They are used internationally by businesses and individuals alike. Many .com domains are already taken. Some people therefore choose .net, .org, .biz, or .info.
