Why Adding your domain is so important to increase your customer's engagement.

Whether you’re starting a personal blog or building a business, owning your domain name is a smart move that puts you in control of your brand and the content you create on the web. This guide will cover the importance of a domain name, what it is, and why you need one if you want to start a successful website. 

What is a Domain name?

A domain name is an online address that offers a user-friendly way to access a website’s true online locator: its Internet Protocol (IP address). The IP address is a unique string of numbers and other characters that are used across the Internet to access websites from any device or location. But the IP address is hard to remember and type correctly, so the domain name represents it with a word-based format that is much easier for users to handle. When a user types a domain name into a browser search bar, the browser uses the IP address it represents to access the site.
Domain names consist of a unique name chosen by the user and an extension, such as .com, .net, or .org, that designates the site’s Top Level Domain.

Why should you get a domain name?

When you sign up for space on a third-party website hosting site or create a page or account on your favorite social media platforms, you’ll typically be provided with a subdomain on the hosting site’s domain. In other words, your “address,” would look something like this: hostsite.com/yourname. Depending on the site where you’re posting your content, it can make for a long, unwieldy, and highly forgettable address.
Your domain name, especially with the very familiar .com extension, clearly communicates your identity and purpose in a way users are likely to remember.
Your domain name can let potential customers and clients know that you’re a legitimate business with long-term plans.
