Frequently Asked Questions
is an Internet Domain Name?
An Internet domain name is like your own unique Internet
address. Many people with e-mail accounts have their mail
sent to their online provider's domain, (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org),
and their websites are listed as a sub-directory of their
online provider's domain (i.e. www.isp.com/johndoe).
you can establish your own Internet identity. All
of your online communications can be centralized under
your own easy-to-remember Internet domain name; email@example.com
What Are Some Examples
of Domain Names and How do I Choose?
Domain names go from A to Z, from conservative to
ultra-creative. Who doesn't recognize ibm.com or netscape.com?
If you're in business, you'll probably want to try to get
your company name or a variation of it. If your family
name is Smith and it's taken, try alternatives like smithsite.com.
You can even choose a nickname or the name of a pet. The
key is to try to pick a name you can identify with and
you like and will be easy for others to remember and spell.

If You're In
In the business world, having your own
domain name is a mark of prestige and it's great
advertising for you. Plus having your own domain name
shows that you're company is Internet friendly. Do people
care? You'd be surprised how many people prefer to deal
with companies who make the effort to remain current.
Creating an identity on the Net is all part of that.
Your own domain name is the equivalent of
a personalized license plate from the DMV. It lets people
know who you are. Use your family name, a nickname or any
name you like. Or maybe you belong to a group that wants
to be identifiable to its members. Once you register that
name with EWAWS, that name is yours.
Domain names can be worth money, so reserve the names you
think will command big bucks. It's like the online
equivalent of 1-800 numbers. There's only so many to go
around, and once they're gone, they're most likely gone
