Domain Hosting

WHAT IS A DOMAIN NAME?

This is your address on the internet. Unique domain names will ensure that your clients find and remember you. Your domain name is also a means to create personalised email addresses, promoting your companies brand. (e.g. name@website.co.za).

WHY YOU NEED A DOMAIN

To obtain an online identity for you company, a domain needs to be registered. A personalised website and e-mail accounts can then be created which contributes to your company’s branding and professional image.

CHOOSING A MEMORABLE DOMAIN NAME

Keep it short and simple, but ensure that it remains unique and memorable. If your business name is a bit long, consider the use of an acronym. Also avoid the hyphens which could cause confusion.

MY DOMAIN NAME IS NOT AVAILABLE

As an alternative, you can settle on the use of a different domain extension. If .co.za is taken, consider .com. In some cases, altering the company name could work as well. Last resort is to make an offer to buy the domain name your desire.

HOW LONG DOES REGISTRATION TAKE?

We like to move fast to ensure that your domain won't be snatched up by someone else. All domain names are registered without delay.

WHAT DOMAIN EXTENSION TO CHOOSE?

To obtain as much as possible domain names would be wise. This ensures that your clients will more easily find you online. Although, this is really up to you. By successfully securing your domain name, along with it’s possible alternatives, you prevent competitors from obtaining it for themselves, which is a big threat to your brand and company image.

HAVING MULTIPLE DOMAINS IS IMPORTANT

People will find your website with more ease if you have multiple domains pointing towards it. Having multiple domain names registered, also prevents competitors from obtaining it for themselves.
