WHY is a DOMAIN Needed??
Registering right domain which reflects to your big idea or business name keeps others from using those names to pull traffic away from your website or brand. If your choice is unique, better hurry before somebody else takes the name away.
With your own domain name your web site and e-mail addresses for example will have that professional look, being unique to your business. … Because of this, domain names were developed so that easily remembered names and phrases could be used to identify entities in the Internet instead of using an IP Address.
