Why should I register a domain? Print

  • 5

A domain is your private address on the internet.

You can build a website if you want, but for many people having a domain is a way of ensuring you never have to change your email again.  If your email is currently something like your.name@yourISP.com.au and you change to a new ISP you will have to let everyone know your new email address.

However if you have a domain such as 123host.com.au and use that for your email address e.g. something@123host.com.au, no matter who your ISP is, your email never changes as long as you keep your domain active and hosting alive.  At 123host this is a relatively cheap service.
