What Is A Domain Name? (For Absolute Beginners!)


Hey it’s Chris here at Colorado Web
Impressions and in today’s video we’re going to talk about domain names more
importantly what is a domain name now you might be thinking yourself well I’ve
heard people say you know what’s your domain name or what’s your website or
what’s your URL and basically it all is the same thing your domain name is
whatever you would call your website okay and so maybe it’s your business
name okay maybe it’s a marketing name that you you thought okay well instead
of using my business name because you know maybe your business name is very
long you know maybe it’s you know maybe have different partners or it has you
know 40 letters altogether or different things like that and so instead you went
with you know Colorado Springs construction dot-com okay
instead of you know Smith Brothers and associates construction com
okay you can kind of see the difference you know if you have a lot of words that
can get kind of confusing and so you choose something different but all in
all to answer the question what is a domain name a domain name is what you
would tell somebody in like an elevator at a restaurant hey visit my website at
this this this that dot-com okay just like our name is Colorado web
impressions com okay so if we tell somebody you know when we’re in an
elevator and they say hey what do you do and we say oh we help Colorado’s small
businesses succeed online that’s great how can I find more out you know more
about your products and services great simply visit Colorado web and prescience
com that is what a domain name is and that is what you need for your business
so if you’re going to have a website you want it to be something that people can
remember imagine a business card okay you know
typically it used to be where you have an address and a phone number now you
have a domain name so you can put your you know an email address you can also
put a domain name say visit our website learning learn more about our products
and our services okay I personally believe a website is the new business
card I don’t know that many people to have the rohtul rolodex anymore with
business cards everywhere okay typically they have you know their
favorites or they have bookmarks on their computer or you know with their
contacts you know they put your name in their contacts you know they’ll put like
your website with it and so it’s important to think about your domain
name as what is the name that you’re going to send people to so they can find
out about your products and services it’s the new business card so if you are
at the gas station you’re getting gas and you run a construction company and
somebody says well I could really use your services okay do you you know do
you have a card you’re like oh no I forgot my cards okay what do you have a
website yeah it’s Colorado Springs construction
calm or whatever your business name is and it might have to write it down or
different things but if you can find something that’s catchy
something that somebody can remember that’s going to help you out in long run
so again what is the domain name a domain name is the place that you tell
people to go to to find out about your products your services your events and
basically your company hopefully that helps no matter what I hope that you
find success online offline and in your life take care
