A domain name is a human-readable address on the Internet; for example,'yahoo-dot-com.' Domain names allow people to go to a company's web site by typing the address into their Internet browser. You can get a domain name for you or your company. First you must find a domain name you want that hasn't already been taken by someone else. Then you must register that domain name so no one else can use it. Registering a domain name costs less than 100 dollars. Your Internet service provider can help you find a domain name and register it. After you have registered a domain name, you'll need to sign up for Domain Name Service from your Internet service provider in order to point your domain name at your web site. Ask an Internet service provider for more information on getting a domain name.
