Question about domain names.

I am new to building websites and domains. I bought a domain name and now i want to use a site builder to get my site going. If i make a website with 5 pages, do i need to buy 5 domains?

example, say i buy the domain awesome.com
when i build a 5 page site do i need to buy
"www.awesome.com/1"
"www.awesome.com/2"
"www.awesome.com/3"
"www.awesome.com/4"

if someone could clear this up for me that would be great TIA

No its just one website and each page would be another folder on your website.

Say your site was about dog training and you choose the name. "http://www.dogtraining.com"

That would be the domain you would register. Say you had 3 different pages on your "http://www.dogtraining.com" site. You would just create 3 different folders on the domain.

Example:

"http://www.dogtraining.com/aboutus"
"http://www.dogtraining.com/dogfoods"
"http://www.dogtraining.com/video"

Remember you can create as many folders as youd like and each folder would represent a different page on your website.

when you register a domain name, it also entitles you to any sub-domains you decide to create e.g. forum.dogtraining.com

once the name is yours thats it - you have plenty of options.

however it doesnt prevent someone buying a shadow domain e.g. dogtraining2.com - a common practice for some affiliate marketers who then redirect to the original site with their affiliate link
