Choosing A Domain Name?

Choosing a domain name for a website that you need to set up as an affiliate website is quite easy and one that is fun to try and find the keyword combinations that are right for your intended affiliate site.

Ideally you want something relevant and one that explains the reason and purpose for your website to the casual but targeted internet searchers and surfers, often no more than three words that fit together to make a niche market phrase or something that is descriptive of your site.

Below is a link to which is one of the top domain name registrars on the face of the internet and it is very easy to locate a valid domain name. All you do is search for what domain name you want by typing in the search box and choosing what domain extension you want like .com or .net and the result will appear and tell you whether it is available or not.

You can buy domain names very cheap and I recommend you have them auto renew each year so that no one else can steal your great domain names.

Domain names are very important to show to others that your affiliate website is a professional one and that you are taking the business of affiliate marketing very seriously indeed.

What is a domain name?
A domain name is a Web address, such as, that is linked to an IP address (which represents a physical point on the Internet). When someone types a domain name into a Web browser, the requested Web page displays.

A domain name consists of a top-level and a second-level domain. A top-level domain (TLD) is the part of the domain name located to the right of the dot ( The most common top-level domains are .COM, .NET, and .ORG. Some other popular top-level domains are .BIZ, .INFO, .NAME and .WS. These TLDs have certain guidelines but are, for the most part, available to any registrant, anywhere in the world.

The part of the domain name located to the left of the dot — "godaddy," in this case — is called the second-level domain (SLD) name. The second-level domain name is the "readable" part of the address and refers to the organization or entity behind the Internet address. Second-level domain names must be registered with an Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)-accredited registrar.
