As with any new venture you need a name. A domain name can be your companies name, product or industry and is used in both your email and web site addresses to uniquely identify you.
If you have decided to have your own domain name (e.g www.mycompanyname.co.uk) you can only purchase it if it is not being used by someone else.
You can find out whether or not your chosen domain name is available by using our free domain name availability checker.
Advantages to owning your own domain name:
- Exposure - a memorable web address
- Affordable cost allows for multiple registrations
- A website is not required to register a domain name
- Increased traffic equals increased sales potential
- Multilingual registrations accepted
- Provides professional image and creditability
- Exclusive use of a domain name
- Permanent email address
Additionally, any domain name is only as good as the internet marketing campaign behind it and in our vast experience, if you are a UK based company then certainly register your '.co.uk' domain and as a secondary choice, the '.com' equivalant . You may also choose additional suffixes eg. '.biz', '.info' etc. for use with structured internet marketing plans to promote key products or services.Your chosen name must end with a suffix which identifies the business/organisation type or country of registration. For example '.co.uk' is for UK registrations. It is important to note that whilst there are no hard and fast rules, some countries do have criteria that must be met before you can register a domain specific to that country.
