What are the Benefits of Owning a Domain Name?
Like any trade name, logo, or brand name,
your domain name represents a part of your business identity - something
customers and business associates can recognize, remember, and positively
associate with your services or products. Registering your domain name will
at very least prevent someone else from using it. More important,
however, is that with your own use on the Internet it becomes a constant
With your own domain name, access on the World
Wide Web becomes a simple matter of entering Yourname.com.
No one has to write it down, they remember it.

email@example.com. - simple, elegant, and much more effective than
Also, by doing business under
your own domain name, a good service provider can offer you multiple Email
"aliases," all going to a single or multiple parties. They can
even be forwarded to people outside your physical location.
- Sound complicated and expensive? It's not really. Shop Alberta can host
your site - www.yourname.com - with the above features starting at $29.95

Finally....ITS PORTABLE! If you've ever had to
change your service provider, or even move your physical business address, you
won't have to be reminded of what an incredible hassle it can be to notify
everyone. Remember, without your own domain name, your Internet address is
tied to that of your service provider. Thus, if you want to change providers
you also change your Web address and probably Email address as well. Consider
for a moment: Are your ready to print new cards, brochures, etc., or contact
all your clients, suppliers, business associates, etc. of your new address?
Can you even remember them or reach them if you want to? And, every day you're
in business the list gets longer. Your own domain name lets you avoid all
that, giving you a permanent Internet address. You can change your service
providers every month if you want, and your address will always remain yourname.com.
Companies are realizing the true market potential of the
Internet, and are often disappointed to find their Domain Name has already
been taken by another company.
