Terminology

Transferring a domain can be confusing, especially when you don't understand all the terms.  Below we have attempted to give simple definitions to terms that can cause confusion:

  • Domain: The name where your website and email will be.  (ex. artistrymarketing.com would be our domain name.)
  • Registrar: the company where you purchase a domain.  Examples include Network Solutions, Godaddy, and more.
  • NS Record: this is a record at your Registrar that tells computers where to find your website or deliver your email. 
  • Website: A website is on a domain.  A domain can have many websites, however.  For example, www.artistrymarketing.com is a different website from my.artistrymarketing.com , but both are on the same domain (artistrymarketing.com)
  • Example: You would go to a Registrar to purchase a domain, where you would then place a website and email.
