What is a URL or a Domain Name?

A URL is a Uniform Resource Locator, the global address of resources and other documents on the World Wide Web.
The URL, your entire address, looks like this:  http://www.YOUR_NAME_HERE.com
A Domain Name will appear as a component of a website's URL.
The Domain Name is this part of the URL:  YOUR_NAME_HERE.com


Why do you need a Domain Name?

Acquiring a domain name is the first step towards creating a web presence. You need an 'address' to direct visitors to your website - much like a business needs a street address to direct clients to their store location.
Your Domain Name is your address or location on the internet. It is also is what potential clients will view as your name and identity. Domain names are unique and individual, like fingerprints - no two are the same. So there will be no one else that has the same name as you anywhere in the world. It's impossible for two or more people to have the same domain name.


If you already have your own Domain Name:

You may already have a domain name/s registered for yourself. If so, great!
When we design your new website, you will need to have access to your domain name to update your DNS (Domain Name Servers) so your domain will direct to your new website. If you have no clue what we're talking about, you can provide us with your registrar address, your login, and your password, and we can update your DNS for you. Time will be billed at our normal hourly rate.


If you need one, how do you get your own Domain Name?

If you need a domain name, your first step is to choose your domain name, and make sure it is available (not already registered by someone else). There are several things to consider when choosing a domain name:
  1. Your Domain Name should be Easy to Remember.
    Many people do not bookmark websites. If you want them to find your website, and come back to visit again, it is important that they are able to remember the name of your website to be able to find it again.
  2. Your Domain name should be Short and Simple.
    Remember potential clients will have to spell and type your domain name (CORRECTLY) to reach your website. Whether you verbally give a potential client your domain over the phone, or hand them a business card and they type it in on their own, think about this: The more they have to type, the more chance they will mistype and not end up on your website.
    Long drawn out names are asking for lost business. Remember the three S's when brainstorming for your new domain name: Short, Smart, and Significant (.com)!
  3. Your Domain Name should be Relevant to your website.
    For example, a kennel website domain might contain the kennel name, and the breed of dog.
    So ABC kennel, raising mutt dogs, might look for the domain name www.ABCMutts.com.
  4. Common extensions are best.
    You have the option to use different extensions, but remember, the most common thing folks think of when they think domain name is .com - .net is the second best. There are now many additional extensions available as well such as: .net, .info, .us, .org, etc... the problem is your potential client may not remember that YOUR address ends in '.something-or-other' and when they simply type in your address'.com' your competition will end up with your business.
  5. Avoid misspellings, symbols, and dashes.
    While this may get you a domain name similar to what you wanted (that was likely already taken), potential clients are not going to remember how you misspelled your name or what tricky symbols you put in it. Again, you will loose your business when clients type in the accurate spelling and end up at your competition's website instead of yours.

Registering Your Domain Name:

Once you have chosen a domain name that is available, your next step it to get it registered so that you own it.
You have two options to register your domain name:

You can find and choose a domain name registrar, and register the domain name yourself. This can cost you anywhere from $9.00 to $75.00 per year... or more, depending on the company. Once you have your domain name registered, you will need to update your DNS and domain information to direct your new domain name to your new website.

Each domain name registered for our clients is registered under our main About Time Design account. This provides several benefits to our clients.

These domains are registered and listed under our company (About Time Design) as long as we are handling the domain registration for our client. Our clients are invoiced $15.00 each year to pay for the registration of their domains and are provided a receipt showing proof of payment for their domain name.

A Bit About Us:


We made About Time Design successful for years without talking "About Us". How did we do that? Well, it was never supposed to be about us. It was always about our clients and their success. We simply focus on getting their websites and designs out there, and putting everything we have into building their success.

But we're bigger now, and people who aren't very familiar with our work want to know a bit more about the creative geniuses working on their new design. So, here's a bit about us and who we are, what we do, and why we're so good at it!
