Once you have your web site, how are your family, friends, customers, and associates going to find it? Most web sites use a domain name to do this. You can order your domain name along with your account by using the form on the home page. Additional information about domain names is provided below.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the most popular way for people to find websites. Most people know that to buy a book from Amazon, you need to type www.amazon.com into the address box of your web browser. If you want to do a search, people will type in www.google.com or www.yahoo.com, or www.bing.com. These addresses are domain names.
You can get your own domain name for your website!
While we think it is a great idea for you to have your own domain name, it is optional. Getting your own domain name will make it much easy for people to find your web site.
What if you Don't Have a Domain Name?
People can still get to your web site even if you do not have a domain name. When your account is created, we assign you a subdomain name. Your subdomain name is appended to our domain name, abc.eznettools.com. For example, if your subdomain name is “majesticscenes”, then your internet address would be abc.eznettools.com/majesticscenes.
How Do You Get a Domain Name?
You can purchase the rights to use a domain name for a specified length of time, usually for one year. After that time has expired, you will need to renew your rights to the domain name. You never really own the name, just the rights to use it for a certain length of time. You buy these rights from a registrar, like EZ-NetTools. So you can buy your domain name through us. There are many other good domain name registrars such as Godaddy, Tucows, and Network Solutions. The prices vary between registrars.
You can purchase your domain name from any of these registrars and it will work with your EZ-NetTools web site. The advantage of using EZ-NetTools as your registrar is that it will be simpler to configure everything because we will do it for you.
You can search to see if the domain you want is available. Enter the domain name below. You may want to purchase multiple for your web site. Often companies will purchase common misspellings of their company names along with the normal spelling. That way if anyone misspells the domain name, they will still find it.
