A domain name is a name used for a website such as “google.com”. You can purchase a domain name through a domain registrar who reserves this name with the central web administration such that you own that name and what servers that name points to.

Your domain name is an address but it is separate from hosting which is what your domain name will point to, the server that will host the content of your site. Showit provides hosting for your website but leaves it is up to use a service to register and maintain your domain name.

If you don’t own a domain name, we recommend you purchase a Domain Registration through Google Domains as they provide private registration and email forwarding for a low price. Click here and then click the button for “Search Domains" on the left.
