What Is A Domain Name?

A domain name is the part of a website address that comes after the "www" and ends in ".com", ".net", or dot whatever. For example, the domain name of the website you are on now is A domain name does not have to end in ".com". It can also end in ".net", ".org", and others.

What Is "Registering" A Domain Name?

"Registering" a domain name gives you exclusive legal right to use that name. No one really "owns" a domain name, even though pretty much everyone uses the term "own" in casual conversation when they actually mean the domain name has been registered to a certain person or business.

I Don't Have A Website. I Don't Want A Website.
Why Should I Register A Domain Name?

You may want to register a domain name simply to prevent someone else from using it. For example, if you have a farm or ranch you probably don't want someone else to develop a website using your farm or ranch's name. If you're like a lot of folks, you use your farm or ranch name to uniquely identify you and your farm or ranch. You might have your farm or ranch name on business cards, painted on your truck or trailer, embroidered on hats, coats, or jackets, and so on. However, if you have not registered your farm or ranch's name as a domain name, there is nothing to prevent someone else from using it on the World Wide Web.

The same is true if you have a horse (or cow, bull, dog, etc.) that you are showing, standing at stud, or in some other way promoting. If you do not register your animal's name as a domain name, someone else could.

The same is also true of your own name. If you are showing or competing, you may be working very hard to associate your name with your riding and/or training skills. You probably don't want someone else to register your name as their domain name.

If You Register It, You Don't Need To "Do" Anything With It

If you register a domain name, you don't have to do anything with it (like make a website). Registering it will simply make it unavailable for someone else to use. Many smart business people register domain names with no intentions of ever developing websites.

How Do I Register A Domain Name?

To register a domain name, you first have to make sure no one else has registered it already. If the domain name of your choice currently isn't registered, you can register it. To register a domain name you fill out a short, easy form with information like your name, address, email address, etc., then pay for the registration. This is usually done by credit card right then and there as you register, but in some cases you can send in a check. The entire registration process usually takes less than five minutes.

You can use this link Domain name check (<<< this link will open in a new window) to check the availability of a domain name. If the name is available, you should be able to register it for yourself.
