ChristiaNet.com (http://www.christianet.com), the world's largest Christian portal with twelve million monthly page loads, has just launched a new directory with articles that have information about domain names as well as web site registration and affordable hosting. An address used on the Internet is called a domain name. This is the first impression that a web site will give to its readers. Are first impressions important? President Bill Cooper, with ChristiaNet says, "Choosing the right name helps to build credibility with customers and provides an easy way for them to make contact. Choose one that best represents your business name and is easy to remember." (http://www.christianet.com/domainnames/)
There are many companies online that sell web site registration and affordable hosting. These companies must be registered with the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) to legally register IP addresses. Some companies offer free name registrations when you agree to use their hosting services. The average cost to register an address is $19.95 per year. Companies that offer web site registration and affordable hosting charge based upon the features offered. This will usually depend on the size of the disk space and data transfer. Other perks might be included such as a web site design and a database tool. Cooper says, "There are some companies that offer free web hosting but most of the time these include a limited amount of web space and don't include email."
ChristiaNet research reveals that it is possible to register domain names under different suffixes to try to take advantage of the greatest possible leads to a web site. Some of the suffixes include .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, etc. Of course these suffixes are indicative of the nature of a web site so there are some restrictions. For the most part .biz and .info are unrestricted suffixes. When choosing an address it is possible to use up to 67 characters in a name including letters and numbers but special characters such as @, $, #, %, cannot be used. The 67 characters allowed in an address usually include the suffix. Something else to consider over creating a name is to bid on an existing one. Popular domains that are for sale are probably going to be expensive to purchase. For more information, visit: http://www.christianet.com/articles/
