01 What is a domain?
  A domain is a unique address on the Internet. It tells people (and the computers they use) how to find your homepage on the Internet. There are many different types of domains categorized by different extensions, such as .com, .net, or .ca, to name a few. An example of a domain name is eSeeHosting.com.

02 Why do I need a domain?
  A domain is tied to a corporation's identity. Nowadays, it becomes more popular for customers and business associates to communicate with you via e-mail and/or your Web site. A domain that closely resembles your corporate identity will definitely make it much easier to remember and is more recognized.
A domain is unique. Once a domain has been taken, no one else can use it. Thus, it is important for businesses and individuals to register a domain name that properly reflects their identity before someone else takes it.

03 What is the difference between .com, .net, .org, and .ca domain names?
  The domain suffixes, also referred to as top-level domain names, are mainly intended to differentiate various types of organizations on the Internet. The most common categorizations are as follows:

.com
Generally used for businesses and commercial entities.

.net
Originally intended to represent the Internet's infrastructure:
Network Information Centers, Network Operations Centers, administrative computers (such as Domain Name Hosts) and network node computers.

.org
Designated for miscellaneous entities that do not fit under any of the other top-level domains. Typically used for not-for-profit organizations.

.ca
The country code domain name for Canada.

04 What is the difference between a .ca and a .com domain?
  From a functional point of view, there is no difference between a .ca and a .com domain. The .ca name is fully accessible by users worldwide (not just in Canada), just like a .com name. However, you must be a Canadian Corporation or resident to register for a .ca name.

05 Do I own the domain name I register through Your Company?
  Yes. We register the domain on your behalf and the ownership is yours. As long as there are no trademark disputes, and that the annual fees are maintained, your registered domain name will be yours indefinitely. At any point in your ownership, you may change ISPs or Web hosting companies without penalty.
