domain name is a unique name that visitors type in a web browser to
look at the pages in a website.

Domain names have strategic significance too.
They help to brand your products or services. You have always wanted
your name to be familiar on the minds of web users. You want them to
remember easily and associate the site with your business.
Owning a domain name also creates a positive image for your
business. A visitor to a free hosting service might ask, “if this
business cannot afford a $20 domain name for its website, how can I
be assured that it is genuine”.

another server if you have a domain name to point the pages on the
new server to.
If you do not have a domain name you cannot move your page around
and maintain the same address.

your website which is a sub domain of another website. Now if this

addresses to reach you but they cannot reach your site and you
cannot set up another server because the domain doesn’t belong to
Think about advertising campaigns to which you have submitted your
address and how popular that address has become. Now you will have
to lose all those Dollars you spent because your domain is no longer
So you see the safety of owning a domain name and the dangers of
hanging onto someone’s.
