Why do I need a domain name?

Updated on June 15, 2021

You may have seen “Domain Name Registration” as itemized somewhere on your invoice and you might have replied, “Okay… but why do I need this? what is the use of a domain name?”

As explained here, to have a website, you must own a domain name.

If you want to build a house, you would surely need a piece of land to build it on. You can’t pay builders to build your house without first buying a piece of land. That piece of land is the domain name.

Why You Need A Domain Name;

  • You’ll need it to build a website on
  • You’ll need it if you wish to create  Webmail accounts (or business email accounts) e.g info@company.com
  • When you register a domain name, you claim it so that no one else can register it. Since no two people can own the same domain name.
