Introduction to tech

Many of our customers ask us questions about the terminology our representatives use when talking about websites. Here’s a quick course in the basics.

What is a domain?

A domain is what’s used as an address for your website and some other services. It’s entered into the address field of your browser to open your website. The domain consists of two parts. The first is the prefix, such as “mycompany”, and the second is the top-level domain, such as “.com”. All doneWebs subscriptions include a domain.

What is SEO?

Search Engine Optimization is the term we use for the application of techniques known to help increase a website’s rating and availability when searching for specific keywords on platforms such as Google, Yahoo or Bing.

What is a personalized domain email account?

Most individuals and small businesses use a major email client, such as Gmail, for sending and receiving emails. However, you might have noticed that some busineses have email addresses with their own name after the “@”, which is what we call their domain. As such, a domain email is an email address under your own domain, such as [email protected] It’s that simple.
