What is a domain name?
A domain name is the internet address of a website or blog.
You'll need to choose a domain name.
Ipage will give you a domain for free when you buy web hosting from them.
Some domain name advice:
Your domain name should be simple, obvious, and as short as possible. What would people guess your domain name is?
.com domain name, even though it's harder to get a good one. Cheap domain names like .biz, .ws and .info are usually markers of low quality.
Don't use numbers or dashes (without very good reason.) They look gimmicky.
Try to have your site name match its domain name. If you can, name your site to match its domain name, not the other way around.
Webb hosting is where your website (or blog) actually sits, on a computer, in a building somewhere, when you put it on the internet.
You'll need to purchase web hosting, to put your site on.
Web hosting is the only thing you have to pay for, to set up a website.
Everything else can be done for free.
