A domain name is the internet address of a website. It is composed of the domain name, which is the name chosen for your site and the suffix .com, .net, .org or other. Several extensions are available and you can choose one that corresponds to your activity.
How to choose ?
For example, if you have an online sales business, you can choose a .com. Domain names are important because they allow Internet users to find your site on the Internet. It is therefore important to choose a domain name that is easy to remember and pronounce. In addition, your domain name should be consistent with your business so that people know immediately what you offer. For example francaisalondres.com. The advantage of this name is that it is easy to remember and that the keywords French and London are in the name. It will therefore be easier to appear on Google with these keywords.
If you have a website or a blog, you can opt for a .com or a .net. The most common extensions are .com and .net, but there are many other extensions such as .org, .fr for France .co.uk for the United Kingdom etc...
You can choose the extension that suits you best depending on your activity and your country.
