If you are planning to create a website, either as a personal digital space for yourself or as a Online home for your business - you surely have many questions about domain names.

The healthy Domain industry can be quite confusing, especially if you come from a completely different, not-so-technical background. However, the Internet is an incredibly versatile place and that's the beauty of it.
