A domain name is the address for your website. Your web address is how your customers can find your website on the internet. Websites are hosted on a web server. A domain name is what connects your website to that server. Every domain has to be unique so that the web server knows where to point the user to. You can check available domain names using our domain name checker at
Domain names are made up of the domain extension or TLD (top-level domain) and the customer defined domain part (the ‘example’ part of ‘example.com’). When someone tries to access your website by typing in ‘example.com’ the DNS server will locate its IP address by first going to the group of .com domains, and then searching for the .com domain labelled ‘example’ to find your website.
If you want to add a blog or a shop to your website you can create a subdomain, e.g. shop.example.com or blog.example.com.
Domain extensions or TLDs are categorised into groups. The original gTLDs (generic top-level domains) included .com, .org, .net, and .gov, and over time the list was expanded to include ccTLDs (country code top-level domains) like .uk, as well as more specific geographic domains like .london, .wales and .scot.
The list of gTLDs has grown to include professional domain extensions like .photography, .restaurant and .shop, as well as new TLDs like .ninja, .lol and .love.
Different extensions suit different purposes. For example, if your website is aimed at a UK audience, it makes sense to choose a .co.uk domain. If you want your website to have international exposure, consider registering the same domain name with .eu and .com extensions. Securing your domains with as many available extensions as possible is the best way to reach the widest audience.
Prices for a domain name can vary based on the extension. At AKLWEB HOST we offer competitive, cheap domain name prices starting from $1. You can check domain name prices at https://www.aklwebhost.com/cheap-domain-names/
Your domain name can be made of up to 63 characters, and these characters can include the letters A-Z, numbers 0-9, and hyphens. However, hyphens cannot be the first or last character of the domain name. Your AKLWEB HOST domain name cannot include underscores, exclamation marks or any other characters. Domains names are not case sensitive.
Assuming that the domain you choose is available, there are some restrictions in place on domain names. For example, you can only register a .scot domain if you or your business resides/operates within Scotland. However for most domains there are no restrictions on how you can use each extension.

If you’re choosing a domain name for your business there are certain tips you can follow. Your domain name should be similar to your business name. If the .com version of your ideal domain name is already taken then consider choosing a more specific extension (e.g. yourcompany.florist).
Consider using hyphens to make your domain easier to read (e.g your-company.com). It’s a good idea to protect your brand and register similar extensions (e.g. get yourcompany.com and yourcompany.net).
With the onset of social media applications and services such as Twitter and Facebook it’s generally a good idea to make sure you secure usernames which match or closely match your domain name.
Whenever you register a domain through any provider you have to provide contact details. These details are shown to anyone who wants to see them on the WHOIS database. This is so that people/customers can contact you if they want to. If you would rather keep these details private, consider the Domain Privacy option.
Because we give you full access to your DNS (domain name system) records we make it as easy as possible for you to transfer your domains to other people. This means you can easily sell your domain if you want to.
