DOMAIN NAME

You decide the name of the website, either from your name, your business name or any other name you fancy, as long as it is not used yet. Make sure it is easy to remember for your users (customers, friends etc). For example if your name is Dean Otway and your business is Otway Bakery, then your Domain name could be otwaybakery.co.nz, deano.co.nz, otway.co.nz or something like that.

Checks have to be done to find out whether this name is already used by someone else. For example otway.co.nz is not used yet, but otway.com is already used for a global (worldwide) website with that name.

It will be used as the name for your website and for your e-mail addresses, for example: when otwaybakery.co.nz is your domain name (and website), then dean@otwaybakery.co.nz, julie@otwaybakery.co.nz and webmaster@otwaybakery.co.nz could be e-mail addresses for that domain. With your own domain name, you are no longer tied to an internet company, such as Microsoft (hotmail) or Telecom (xtra). Be your own boss, even for your hobby or family needs.

Your domain name needs to be registered, so that no-one else can use the same name. That can be done for a reasonable amount (<$50.-), depending on the type of domain (nz, global or other). Normally you can use the same company as where your website is ‘hosted’ – see 2 below, but it can also be done separately..
