Domain is your online name, which shows your presence over the Internet and defines who you are and what you serve. There are multiple categories available in Domain selection. Domain include website address, which is used to access any website. A complete domain name includes website prefix and domain suffix i.e. .com, .net, .in etc. There should be a standard format to make a web domain in which a to z letters and 0 to 9 numbers are included. For example in firstname.lastname@example.org, Sarv.com is a domain.
Domain suffix represents the type of particular website. For example .com is for commercial purpose. Domain registration is very cheaper now a days and it’s a best and necessary way to make an online presence.
There should not be any restriction to access any domain regionally. If there is any, then one must know the reason and get the solution ASAP.

How to choose the right domain
Domain name includes business name, which then is made live by making an online business as discussed earlier. When we are going to select any domain, make sure it includes your company/business name and select the category of domain as per business scale. If it’s a commercial, one can select .com and if it’s only for India business then preference will be .in domain. If once you have done with registration of any domain then no one can use your domain name.
How to choose a good vendor
If you are good at your place in terms of your quality of services, than you need to choose a good vendor to avoid any kind of issues related to support, connectivity, technicality etc. Always check the tenure of your vendor in this industry when you are selecting. Try to check what kind of brand value it has in market with the help of existing clients or customers. If vendor maintain the quality of services and provide good technical assistance for any issue then we can approach for the same.
Associated services with Domain
Domain is interconnected with multiple services for business, or we can say, to use any good Internet based services you require a domain. If you want to make an online presence via a website then you need a domain first to host your website, make your live presence on Internet with own brand name.
Domain itself generate the mandatory need of services like:
-Web domain hosting
In Domain there should be division in sub domain. For example email@example.com is main domain, thus blog.sarv.com is a sub domain of Sarv.com. A domain should always be easy to remember and easy to type. In order to make the domain live a hosting provider/service is necessary.
In India or worldwide we have a lot of domain providers, who deal with domain based services. All domain services operate on different servers. There are some familiar names in domain industry as providers like Sarv.com, godaddy.com, bigrock.com, net4.in, domainindia.org etc.
How one can select Domain TLD category for your business
Domain selection matters a lot for brand image. It completely depends on type of your business profile. As we discussed that there are multiple category of Domain .com, .net, .in etc.
On the time of selection check that how helpful will it be for your website Google ranking. Domain plays a very big role in Google ranking.
Your first choice should be .com before any other extension. This stands for commercial. This domain ranks easily & quickly in search engine. You should choose .com domain if there is availability.
.NET extension stands for “Network”. Networking & Internet service provider companies mainly use this extension. This is not easy to rank a .net domain; you will need some time & more quality back-links.
.ORG is associated with non- profit organization. There are no needs for registration & anyone can register .org domain. .org ranks quickly & easily like .com extension.
This stands for “informational” domain & uses for sharing information. This is very difficult to rank this TLD.
Renewal of Domain
Domain registration will be for a time limit. We need to renew the domain after it get expire. You need to pay again the renewal charges for the same domain to continue with the domain services. If the business is set and domain is final then it will be wise to renew the domain for 10 years at once. This will release you from the headache of domain renewal every year and the risk of losing it if not renewed on time.
Sometimes, losing a domain costs a lot in business, as it will then probably be booked or renewed by someone else.
Domain web hosting
You can host your domain over the Internet, make a website and upload it on an online space called hosting. Through the website one may easily explain the work of a company, products scope etc. Explain your business in every bit so to increase the number of pages, but with valuable content. Good content with most searched keywords will surely help increase the indexing of a website in the search engine.
