Planning your site
At this stage before creating your site it is best to decide on the correct domain name.
Take into account the questions on this page and plan the right strategy for your site starting with the correct domain name or names. Depending on your needs.
If you are unsure on the right name for you get in touch and one of our staff here at World Web Design will be more than happy to help.
Choosing the right domain name for your needs is not always as easy as people think.
There are several factors to take into account. Here are some of our frequently asked questions.
Q. Do I choose the domain that matches my company name or one that is easy to remember or even something that matches the target audience I want?
A. We would suggest that you buy a name that is either your company name or if that is not available then buy a domain name that your target audience will remember. For example, something that is a keyword or phrase for your business.
Q. What TLD/ Extension should I use?
A. We would always recommend that you try to get either .com .co.uk or both extensions. If your business is only going to be working in the UK it is always best to have your primary domain as .co.uk. If you are going to be doing business internationally then it is best to get a .com domain name.
Q. What do you think of the new TLD/ Extensions for domain names?
A. Since Ican the domain name body decided to release new TLD’s there are hundreds to choose from. We would say first decide on the name you want and then try to find either the .co.uk or .com first and then decide on any others that would be beneficial. We would always suggest building a website on each name as pointing one website to another has no advantage except protecting your name from other companies.
Having the correct domain name also means having an email service that is reliable and can be accessed from any device, anywhere you have an internet connection. Having a Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo account does not look as good as having an email in your own domain name. For instance firstname.lastname@example.org. We pride ourselves on using a world class solution backed by one of the longest running companies on the net. Which means a reliable service as well as a fair price.
Our email services start from as little as £1.19 per month with 5GB of space. Complete with anti-spam technologies and the ability to control how your e-mail blocks or allows e-mails. To find out more please call a member of our team or buy your first email account when you buy your domain name.
