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 positive reinforcement.

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.

  • Similarly, every Email message affirms your name as your address becomes you@yourname.com. - simple, elegant, and much more effective than you@someunrelatedprovider.com.
    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 per month .

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.

A domain name is your unique address that identifies a computer to the rest of the Internet. Think of it like this. It is a permanent name for your machine, no matter where you work, where your job takes you, or what system you have 20 years down the road.
