So what exactly is a domain name?

A domain name is the address where your website would be found on the internet. It's where people can find you, and it serves as your online identity (the unique name that identifies an Internet site). For example, the domain name of this web site is "". Typically, a business would register an internet name based on their company name. Individuals often register family names or names that have a personal interest to them.

Internet names, or domain names, have two parts: the label and the extension. There are many domain name extensions for your business to choose from when registering and this can sometimes cause confusion. Common domain name extensions include:

  • "" (in South Africa)
  • ".com"
  • ".biz"
  • ".net"
  • ".info"

INTOWEB PROVIDES A FREE DOMAIN NAME SEARCH. Let us find the appropriate internet name for your company.

Registration of an internet name for future use by your business

If you're not quite ready to start building a website, your business can just register and hold the domain name to ensure that you can use it in the future. In such cases Intoweb can provide you with a placeholder page telling visitors that the site is 'under construction.' Whatever your situation, if there's a particular domain name that you want, it's good to register it quickly. There's no guarantee that a domain name available on the internet today will be available tomorrow. Online payments make it easier for you to register the domain name that you would like to have for your business.
