2. What is a domain name?
A domain name isn’t just an address for your site, it links a memorable name to an IP address. There’s really no limit to what you can use your domain for. The reason gets at a question we took up in the latest installment of our Domain name guide series: what is a domain name?
3. 7 tips for choosing a winning domain name for your startup
Building a successful startup requires laying the right foundation. To enable your business to transform into a powerhouse brand and stand out in its niche, you need to give it a memorable and intuitive identity.

A great domain name is short, meaningful, memorable, descriptive, unique, and puts you in the spotlight. This month, Alisha from Radix shared 7 tips for how to choose a domain name.
