How do I choose a domain name?

Published: April 26, 2010

Updated: March 30, 2011

Applies To: Windows Home Server 2011

Choose a name that uniquely identifies your home server. For example, if your last name is Smith, you might choose SmithFamily to uniquely identify your home server on the Internet. If the domain name is not available, try another variation of that name, or perhaps something completely different.

The name you type can contain the following:

  • 63 characters maximum

  • Letters, numbers, or hyphens (-). The name must begin and end with a letter or a number.

    Domain names are not case sensitive.
