What is a domain name?
A domain name is the address, or URL, of your website. For example "newdream.net" or "surfstation.lu" or "dreamhost.com".

Every domain is unique across the entire planet and are assigned to whomever registers them on a first-come first-serve basis.

You can register domain names followed by .com, .net, .org, .info and .la through us.
