Frequently Asked Questions about Domains:

What is a domain name, and why do I need one?

A domain name is an address people type into a browser to access a website, similar to how a street address is used to locate a building. Every device, server, or website linked to the internet has a specific IP address that enables access. However, these IP addresses are lengthy and complicated, making them difficult to remember. A domain name is a more straightforward, user-friendly alternative to an IP address.

When you enter a domain name like www.wehost-4u.com or type a website URL into your browser, the DNS system will convert it into the correct IP address, allowing you to access the associated website.

Your domain name can help you appear more legitimate to people searching for you or your business online. With a domain name, you can:

  • Build a website for your storefront or e-commerce business
  • In order to appear trustworthy and competent, creating a professional email using your domain name is recommended.

What is domain name registration?

When you register a domain name, you get to choose a web address, such as wehost-4u.com or web3cs.co.uk, and sign up to use it. It’s important to understand that although you won’t technically own the domain, it will belong to you as long as you continue to pay the annual registration fee.

How do I buy domain names?

Here are the steps to buy domains:

  1. Decide on a domain name extension. The top-level domain (TLD) extension is the part at the end of a domain name such as .net, .biz, .org, or .com. Some individuals register their website name with multiple extensions to prevent others from obtaining it from registering their brand name on those TLDs.
  2. Consider the name or speciality you desire for your business after the dot. Utilise our business name generator to assist in brainstorming and discovering the perfect name.
  3. Check domain availability by typing it in the search box at the top of the page. We’ll suggest alternatives if it’s taken.
  4. Choose one or more domains, add them to your cart, and complete your purchase. Congratulations, you now own your domain, and no one else can use it as long as it remains registered.

Please let me know the duration of my domain name registration. Also, could you guide me on the process of renewing my domain?

The duration for domain registration varies based on the domain extension you purchase. Generally, domain registrars permit customers to register domains for up to 10 years. Most customers usually register domains for a period of one to three years. However, some premium domains and gTLDs, such as .au and .nl, have shorter registration periods. WeHost4U offers a seamless process to renew your domain registration by manually renewing it or setting up auto-renewal to ensure your website name stays registered.

Do you have any advice on how to choose a quality domain name?

When searching for a good domain name, keep these four things in mind:

  1. Reflect on your brand. Using your business name as your domain name is highly recommended for ensuring easy recognition by customers. Remember it.
  2. Keep it short. Shorter domain names are more accessible for customers to remember.
  3. Avoid numbers or hyphens. Customers may forget to add hyphens when typing your web address, and if they hear it with a number, they may not be sure if it’s the numeral “5” or the word “five”.If your business name has a number, register both versions of the domain – one with the number and one with the number spelt out.
  4. Protect your brand by registering multiple domains, including common misspellings of your brand name. This will help to ensure that your name remains secure. If you already own your .com domain and have misspellings of that domain, consider registration for You can choose from various domain extensions like .org, .net, .info, and more.
