instantaneously. The following steps are essential for your business online strategy:

Make your website secure
Get your website found
What are Domains?
The first thing you will need to do is to choose a domain, also commonly known as a URL or Web
address. The Web domain is the address of your business’ website. For example, the domain name or
Web address for Network Solutions® is NetworkSolutions.com.
Ideally, the address of your website will match the name of your business. At this point, many addresses
are already taken, but there are ways to find a suitable and memorable Web address for your business.
Why Do You Need a Domain?
A domain name is how people find your website online. Your business’ domain name is an important key
to your online identity; if you intend to build a website and set up email for your business, having a
domain is absolutely critical.
Domain names are a unique identifier on the Internet, and must be registered with a domain registrar.
These companies manage the addition of new names to the global list of unique identifiers. Much like a
phone number is unique for a mobile phone or land line, only one domain name can be registered with a
particular domain name extension.
