Each website has a very unique address. In fact, it’s just like your home address or the Domicilium citandi et executandi that you would include in a legal contract. This unique identifier makes sure that if someone needs to get directly to your website they can do so easily.  A domain name can also be called a URL, an abbreviation for Uniform Resource Locator.

An example of a URL:

Breaking URL down

The first part of the URL is the scheme, which indicates the protocol that the browser must use to request the resource (a protocol is a set method for exchanging or transferring data around a computer network). Usually for websites the protocol is HTTPS or HTTP (its unsecured version).
Next follows the authority which is separated from the scheme by the character pattern ://. Is the domain (e.g. This indicates which web server is being requested. Usually this is a domain name, but an IP address may also be used (but this is rare as it is much less convenient)

Purchasing a domain name for your website

You have to purchase and register your domain name for your website. You normally have to pay annually to keep your domain name. Most domain sellers will charge a discounted rate for the first year.  Costs range from $12-$20 per year, along with a registration fee of around $80.

  1. Check the availability of the domain name you want by typing it into the domain search box provided by the company registering your domain name.

  2. Select a domain name from the available options.

  3. Specify your preferred language, registrant name and legal type. Read and accept any T&C’s.

  4. Complete your purchase (Pay for the registration)

  5. You can use your domain name once your registration is approved.
