What’s a Domain?

What is a domain? A question asked by many new to webmastering or site creation. It was one of my questions when I first started out a while back. Well a domain in simple terms, is what you see on your web browser address bar that ends in a domain extenions such as a .com, .net, .org, or .info. This blog has a .info extension so the domain is oldpapers.info. There are dozens of other extensions. I will tell you about those later on in other posts.

Domains haven’t been around for that long. The oldest domain registered is just under 25 years old. Yes! Just 25 Years old. Younger than most webmasters out there. Getting a hold of this 25 year old domain could be worth millions of dollars. Hard to believe? Well believe it anyway because it is very true. Google.com alone is worth a lot and it is just about 10 years old.

You can buy your domains anytime you want now at domain registrars. I will list many registrars later on as time passes by but for now, here are a few that I use. GoDaddy.com, NameCheap.com, and Moniker.com. Moniker has cheap .net domains if you are interested. GoDaddy has cheap .com domains and NameCheap offers free whoisguard that can save you around $3 a year. I will tell you what whoisguards are a little later on.

Thank you for reading, I will be posting more information soon. Visit back!
