Registering a Domain Name

While it's important to put thought into choosing the right domain name, as soon as you have an idea of what you're looking for registering a domain name is simple and quick. You will need a totally unique name that will help internet users find you on the web. You will want to take care to select a domain name that fits your brand and industry.

An extension must be added to the name itself in the form of ‘.com’, ‘.co.uk’, ‘.shop’, etc. A wide variety of extensions are now available, which will allow you to find one that fits your needs. You also can often find your desired name in an alternate extension. For example, even if ‘example.com’ is already taken, you can reserve ‘example.org’ instead.

Choosing a host

For a website to be available on the Internet at all times, it needs to be ‘hosted’.

This will allow your website to have the optimal amount of storage for your needs. The services of a web host will also ensure that your website remains accessible based on expected traffic.

Several options are available, depending on the plan you selected. You can host one or several websites on a single instance and benefit from scalable storage, so you will always have enough space. We also include SSL certificates, unlimited bandwidth and e-mail tech support with all our offers.
