A domain name (Web address) provides you with an identity on the Internet. Your customers & associates will remember this name easily and use it to find your Web site, your products or your services. Since no two parties can have the same domain name (Web address) simultaneously, your domain name is totally unique.
Technically, a domain name (Web address) is an addressing construct used for identifying and locating computers on the Internet. While computers use Internet Protocol (IP) numbers to locate each other on the Internet, people find them hard to remember. Therefore, domain names (Web addresses) were developed to permit the use of easily remembered words and phrases to identify Internet addresses.
For example, the domain name (Web address) sircontech.co.in represents Sircon Technologies Web site. When you type sircontech.co.in into a Web browser or send e-mail to someone at sircontech.co.in, the Domain Name System (DNS) translates sircontech.co.in into the IP numbers used by the Internet and connects you to Sircon Technologies web site.
Why have a Domain Name?
A domain name (Web address) is more than your Internet address, it's your Internet identity, your online brand. It puts you on the map of today's online world, opening you to literally millions of users worldwide. When you register a domain name (Web address), you'll join over millions of others who are reaping the rewards of being online.
What is the cost of acquiring a Domain Name?
The pricing of domain names depends on the type of domain being registered & the time for which domains are registered.
