Do you need a domain name?
If you want a website on the Internet you probably need a domain name. When the Internet was
young many hosting company would sell server space using their domain name and they would
call these sites sub domains and other fancy names. Sites such as this would have URL's such
Now that isn't a very easy name to remember, is it?
Many search engines don't like to index sites such as this either. That would make it much
harder to find your site for potential viewers. It is also much harder to run certain scripts
using this type of site because you do not have access to certain features that allow you to
have an interactive site.
If you want a website you should have your own domain name. It allows you a unique place on the
Internet and will allow you to have email using that domain name.
