What does it mean to 'Register a domain'?

  • May 24, 2008
Registering a domain allows you to point an easy name (ex. www.ultraonline.net) to your web hosting account.  This also allows you to receive email. (ex. support@ultraonline.net)

The Internet domain name system (DNS) consists of a directory, organized hierarchically, of all the domain names and their corresponding computers registered to particular companies and persons using the Internet. When you register a domain name, it will be associated with the computer on the Internet you designate during the period the registration is in effect.
