Your Domain Name

A domain name is really just your address on the global Internet. It's where people can find you, and it serves as your online identity. Businesses typically register domain names with their company name and sometimes will also register their product names.

Individuals often register family names or names that have a personal interest to them.

Domain names have two parts: the label and the extension, or top-level domain, separated by a 'dot.' In DascoUSA.com, 'DascoUSA' is the label and 'com' is the top-level domain. There are over 20 domain name extensions to choose from. Popular domain name extensions such as .COM and .NET are typically used by for-profit companies, while .ORG is often used to denote a non-profit organization. Other generic extensions such as .INFO and .BIZ have more recently become available as well. You can also register domain names that are specific to a certain country. For example, the extensions .US, .UK, and .DE correspond to the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany, respectively.

Why Register Your Own Domain Name

.Com names like prime real-estate are going fast. Some companies are solely in the business of registering names and re-selling the registration (at a profit) to the company that wants the name. Domain registration is done on a first come first served basis. If someone else registers your name, it’s theirs until they relinquish that name. It's important to know, that just because you register a name doesn’t mean that you have to rush out and create a Web site. You can "park" a registration so the name is yours to use when you ready and you've reserved it for your needs when you’re ready to get started.
