👉It’s time to get back to the basics!
A few months ago I took a break from my usual reading to dive into a really basic book on web design. I can not count the amount of times that I have reached out to a client about setting up a domain, picking a hosting package, etc. and they respond with lots of questions marks. 🤷♀️🤷♀️
I took this as an opportunity to learn how to educate my clients and followers, so here we go!
💭Let’s talk about domains! A domain is your website name. This is what you see on advertisements, business cards, etc. It’s what you enter into your web browser and it’s usually used for email addresses! www.______ or sarah@____! That blank is your domain! .
💻Domains can end in a lot of different website suffixes such as: .com, .net, .org, .edu, etc! These are called top-level domains (TLDs)! All domains end in a specific TLD, so make sure you pay attention as not all domains end in .com!
A lot of people call Domains URLs… they’re not completely wrong, either. So what’s a URL? A URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is the complete web address. It’s probably really confusing considering that we don’t really need to type this stuff in anymore. You can thank Google and our Web Browsers for not having to type in HTTPS://www. anymore! 🙌🙌
I hope this was helpful
