A domain name is your website name. A domain name is the address where Internet users can access your website. A domain name is used for finding and identifying computers on the Internet. Computers use IP addresses, which are a series of numbers. Since it is difficult for humans to remember strings of numbers, domain names were developed and used to identify entities on the Internet rather than using IP addresses.
A domain name can be any combination of letters and numbers, and it can be used in combination of the various domain name extensions, such as .com, .net and more.
The domain name must be registered before you can use it. Every domain name is unique. No two websites can have the same domain name. If someone types in www.yourdomain.com, it will go to your website and no one else's.
A website template (or web template) is a pre-designed webpage, or set of HTML webpages that anyone can use to "plug-in" their own text content and images into to create a website. Usually built with HTML and CSS code, website templates allow anyone to setup a website without having to hire a professional web developer or designer, although, many developers do use website templates to create sites for their clients. This allows anyone to build a reasonably priced personal or business website that can then be listed in search engines so users can search for your specific product or service. In the case of website templates, each design we offer is a self-contained (or standalone) downloadable complete website that you can use to "plug-in" your text and image content with little, or no, editing of the layout or design elements.
Types of Web Templates
Webpage templates may be self-contained zip file downloads, or part of a proprietary web builder interface, or included with an html software editing program. They may be responsive, adaptive or static in design or configured specifically for mobile. The file extension can be .html .htm .php or .asp. In all cases they will be built using html and css code. If it's labeled as "responsive", the layout will flex in width to fit the specific device viewing screen regardless of whether it's a desktop computer, tablet or smartphone.
If a user is concerned that by using a website template, they will not be getting a unique website, you may want to consider that many billions of websites exist, and countless templates are available from a vast number of companies. When setting up your website you will most likely edit all text and replace most images to make your website project unique. All our templates also use global CSS code and allow for easy color changes as well as font and some layout & design modifications. Unlike a CMS or site builder system, standalone templates allow for modifications to any part of the webpages.
