Think of a domain name as a piece of internet real estate. Owning a domain means owning a space on the web where anyone can search and find the website that you have attached to that name. In this way, it acts like an Internet address where you can find your site.
There are many reasons why having your own domain name is a great idea. These include expansion of your business, being able to put out special offers, standing out from your competitors, improving your search results in search engines, protecting your brand name, and creating an identity for your business on the internet. If you have a website, connecting a domain name to it shows internet users that you are serious about your website and your business.

Removing it is as simple as setting the website domain option to "no domain" and then adding the domain to another upgraded website. No change in hosting services or web hosting is required, only adding the correct settings to the new website.
The domain name system (DNS) is the address system for the entire internet. It is how domain names are located and translated into Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. A domain name such as mywebsite.com is a unique name for an IP address (a number), which is an actual place on the Internet. We change the domain zone file on the domain registrar to make sure your domain is pointed to the correct website.
There are two ways you can get emails for your domain - either through your paid plan, or through manually buying additional mailboxes. Either way, high quality personalized email addresses are available under your domains to make your business more professional!
