Why Domains? Why Now?
Frequently Asked Questions,
Answered By Our Collective Domain Expertise
A domain is the name of the website, while the URL (Universal Resource Locator) is the full web address entered into a browser to pull up a web page. For example, Moonbuzz.io is the domain, but https://moonbuzz.io/domain is the URL of this page.
One thing to keep in mind is search engines tend to rank pages, not domains. Domains, however, are the sum of their constituent pages.
You can therefore increase your domain’s overall authority by creating individual pages (individual URLs) that are answering questions with low competition and high search volume. This a big part of how Search Engine Optimization (SEO) works.
If you are interested in assistance with SEO for your new domain, we offer two approaches. One is simple and the other is far more involved but far more powerful. If you’d like assistance with either of these approaches, feel free to check out our:

Your Domain is owned by whoever registered your web address with an accredited registrar (such as MoonBuzz.io). To maintain ownership, you must pay associated fees and keep your contact information up to date.
Domain registration is one of the most confusing aspects of website hosting. First and foremost, a hosting company (like MoonBuzz Media, LLC) exists to physically host your website on a server that we actively manage. If we’re running a series of backups for your server, or include a Content Delivery Network (CDN) in your hosting package, we are hosting your website content on more than one server. But the service essentially remains the same. You pay us to “host” your website for you so you don’t have to run a server farm out of your basement (which, if you have the technical expertise to do, is actually pretty awesome – we like people who DIY so don’t let us get in your way).
Here’s where things get confusing for most people.
Domain registration, or domain hosting, is a separate service. Every website needs a domain to be registered, but the domain itself is not the website’s content (which physically exists on a server somewhere).
When you buy a domain name (like MoonBuzz.io), you do so through a “Domain Registrar” (like MoonBuzz Media, LLC). Domain Registrars manage the registration of that domain name for you. The domain itself has to point to the IP address where your website content physically exists (every server has an IP address). Therefore Domain Registration (and ownership by you, the entrepreneur who’s purchased it) is separate from, but just as important as, website hosting.
If you’re planning on using your transferred domain to change an existing domain name, you may want to set up redirects for commonly used URLs. Check your Google Analytics dashboard for the most important URLs based on traffic, and make plans to redirect these URLs to the new addresses associated with your website.
An addon domain is a domain that can be added to your cPanel account. It allows the user to include multiple websites within the same cPanel account (even if the cPanel account is set up under another domain). You still have to register the domain in order to add it, but it does allow you to piggyback multiple websites within a single account without purchasing multiple hosting packages.
A quick note of caution: don’t attempt to add an addon domain to your cPanel account unless you know what you’re doing. If the websites require more resources than your current cPanel account can provide, you’ll need to upgrade your cPanel account to accommodate additional websites.
Everything is a balance between resources and your website’s content and traffic.
If you’re an accredited degree-granting institution of higher learning (such as a college or university) you may want to take advantage of an .edu domain. An example of this would be hawaii.edu. Due to the verification process involved with such a purchase, all .edu domains are currently registered and administrated by EduCause.
If you feel you would benefit from an .edu domain name, please visit EduCause for more information.
