Let Us Be Your Online Home
In the real world every business with a telephone line needs to be registered with some kind of directory so people can search and find them. The internet works in just the same way.
Every website or domain on the internet is registered online with an IP address. These IP addresses are like a telephone number they are unique and point to one location.
When choosing a name for your website there are some important factors that you should consider first.
- Is the name you choose unique?
- Is there already a website registered with an address that is very similar and could be confused with your website?
- Does the name of the website link to your company?
- Is the name simple and easy to remember?
(try and avoid – and _ characters as these often get mixed up)
Once you have a name in mind you need to decide what extension you would like. An extension is the last part of your web address or URL such as .COM or .CO.UK
2014 has seen an explosion in new domain name extensions with names such as .event .email .service, giving you even more choice for the perfect website name.
Once you have registered your domain on the web you will need to host your site on a server connected to the internet. Hosting provides a home for all your files images and videos that are included in your website.
