How to register domain name with Godaddy.
What is Domain name?
A Domain name is nothing but a unique URL of your website. URL (Uniform resource locator) is a string, which user enters into the browser to visit the website. For example www.ithemesforests.com is a domain name for my website.
What’s the role of domain name and how it is important for a website?
Let me explain this with an example. Suppose you search a keyword on Google and get bulk of search results. Which result will you open first? Of course the one which has domain name, relevant to your search content.
It is very important to choose domain name according your content, it must complements your content and should be easy to memorize. It can be long or short, doesn’t matter. If we go by arguments over internet, some says big domain names are good, other says short ones are good. As per my understanding both types are good, provided, it should make sense and should complement your content.
Now you must be thinking, which domain registrar (Domain registrar is the one, which has rights to sell domain name) you should choose for domain registration.
