VetNetwork is presenting a three-part series about veterinary hospital domain names (also called website address and URL). The first part of the series is on purchasing your veterinary hospital domain name. The second part of the series is about choosing the right domain name for your veterinary hospital website and the third part of the series is an article about using your veterinary hospital domain name.

Part 1. Purchasing your Veterinary Hospital Domain Name

Your domain name, also known as URL or web(site) address, is the address where your veterinary hospital website resides. It is nothing more than the location on the internet where visitors can find your veterinary hospital’s website. The address for your hospital website is similar to your home address. If you live at 6 Main St., Dallas, TX, that is your home address. Your address is a specific location describing where you live; it does not define who you are or what kind of home you have. Your home address is to you what your website address is to your website.

Purchasing and registering your hospital domain name is an integral part of creating your website. Once you have purchased and registered your domain name, your website can be seen by the world. The best time to purchase your veterinary hospital domain name is now, even if your website is not completed. Domain names disappear quickly and there are only a finite number of them. Each day more than 167,000 new domain names are registered. If your veterinary hospital domain name is available and you don’t purchase it immediately, you run the risk of loosing it to someone else.

There are many companies where you can purchase your hospital’s domain name; however, you need to be cautious. Companies that sell domain name to the public are called domain name registrars. Before purchasing your domain name, choose your registrar carefully. Purchasing your veterinary hospital domain name from a reputable registrar can save you lots of time and prevent unnecessary aggravation. Many registrars have gone out of business and some have even been purchased by companies located outside the US.
