Before you choose a domain name, it’s important you know what a “domain name” means. 

A domain name is your website name. It is the address where Internet users can access your website. You can be found on the web with your domain name. 

How do I get a domain name?

Different domain name for different website

Your domain name can be any combination of letters and numbers, but more preferable your and it can be used in combination of the various domain name extensions, such as .com, .ng, .org, .net, and more. 

Two websites can never have the same domain name and you must register the domain name before you use it. Your domain name will look like www.mydomainname.ng

which domain extension should I choose (.org, .net, .com, etc.)?

Your domain extension all depends on how you plan to use the site. Each domain extension has a purpose, for instance;

.com is the most common extension and you must have thought of having a .com extension too. It has the most clout with Google and keyword rankings.

The .org extension is commonly used for charity or non-profit organizations; this is its most common use. That being said there are successful for-profit sites that use the .org extension. 

According to seo.com .net is better than other extensions, but has lower Google rankings weight than the .com (which has the most clout with Google and keyword rankings) and .org extensions.
 
.ng/.uk. .gh is a domain name with an extension of the country. For example .ng (Nigeria) .uk (United Kingdom) .gh (Ghana). www.mydomainname.ng
