A Domain Name is a website's URL address, the - www.yourwebsite.com.
I do not recommend getting a domain name until after you hire a web designer and purchase web hosting service. Most web designers like to use a particular hosting company and most hosting companies will allow you to register a domain name through them. This is the correct way to go about this because it will save a lot of time and trouble.
The domain name is important because it can play a role in how your website gets ranked with search engines. Many people believe that a good domain name would be www. - your business name - .com, but this is not always the case.
When it comes to search engines Google is the 800 pound gorilla in the room. Because of their branding they are the most used search engine, but they are also the most unpredictable. Bing, Yahoo and DuckDuckGo are very predictable and reliable when it comes to knowing what you need to do to get a good search ranking. This is not the case with Google.
I've seen websites ranked in the number one position on Bing, Yahoo and DuckDuckGo, and not be listed anywhere on Google and vice versa.
Google may penalize your website if there are what they consider to be too many keywords in your domain name. And they may do the same if your domain name matches exactly the name of your website.
Choosing the right domain is important, but what may seem right to you may not be.
