Q: Are Domain Names and Websites Separate Things?

A: Think of it this way. Your website is your phone and your domain name is your phone number. You can change your phone but still keep your phone number and simply connect it to your new phone. So, in essence, your domain name does not permanently stick to any specific website.

Q: Where Can I Buy a Domain Name?

A: If you are looking to buy a domain name, you’ll have plenty of registrars to choose from. If you’re looking for well-known registrars, however, that’s a different story entirely as the only well-known ones are GoDaddy and NameCheap.

Q: Can I Buy a Domain Name Directly From a Website Builder?

A: Yes. In fact, some website builders give you a free custom domain name when you sign up for their annual plans.

Q: Can I Transfer My Domain Name if I Change Website Builders?

A: Yes. The thing is your domain name is not exactly tied to a specific location so you can take it with you as long as you continue paying annual fees.

Q: Are Domain Names With the TLD .Com Better Than the Rest?

A: Generally, people tend to be more inclined to choose top-level domains such as .com, .net, .ca or .org. However, it’s not something that I would sweat over and neither should you. Just try to match the domain name with your business name and you’ll be good to go.

Q: Should I Purchase a Domain Name Through a Registrar or a Website Builder?

A: It all really depends on which one you feel offers you more pros. 

Going with a registrar like us makes it easier to manage your domain name and you’ll also have an easier time disconnecting and reconnecting to a domain name since you don’t have to transfer it from one website builder to the next.

We offer both. Our website builder can easily be converted in-house at thebuzzr.net to a domain not attached to the builder.
