Domain Name

From Showit Desktop Manual

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.

If you don't own a domain name, we recommend you purchase a Domain Registration through Google so that it will automatically setup a Google Apps account for you. Click here and then choose "I want to buy a domain name" on the right.

Your domain name is an address but it is separate from hosting which is what your domain name will point to, a server that will host your site. You can also check out more information about the content hosting Showit provides and options for a Third Party Host if you wish to host additional content.
