Domain Names and Registration
Your domain name is the name for your web site (www.MYDOMAIN.com).which is established through a registration process. ANYONE can register and own a domain name. Registration of a name is completely independent of the other aspects of your website such as design, hosting, support, e-mail services, etc. Therefore you do not have to register your domain name through your website provider. We actually advise against this and suggest you establish your domain registration independently of your website provider. Your domain name is the key to finding your website and you want to make sure you have control over this aspect if you ever need to change vendors.
