Domain names are the names we use to navigate the World Wide Web.  Google.com is an example of a domain name.  Essentially, the purpose of domain names is to allow us humans to avoid typing in a string of numbers to reach websites.  DNS allows us to use human readable addresses which are converted to the numerical addresses preferred by computers.

 

To get your own domain name, you need to register it through a "domain name registrar".  The registrar then provides tools for you (or I) to use to link your name to a computer (or hosted website for example).

 

There are literally thousands of domain name registrars, most of whom are resellers.  If you end up choosing an unresponsive registrar, it can become a nightmare if you ever want to change, or move to another one.  

 

From my experience, I would recommend only one, namespro.ca.  I've held all my domains with them for nearly 4 years now, and have not had a single problem with them.  As such, I've set up an affiliate account which gives me a small cut of the profits if you register domain names using my link.  Prices are the same whether or not you use the link, so please do ;-)

 

I also offer domain name registration and web hosting as managed services, but if you'd like to take care of the nitty gritty details yourself, use the link at the top of this page, or start here
