A domain name is simply an Internet address. In the same way that you need a location before you can open your business, you need an Internet address before you can open a website.
For example, our address is http://www.datrim.co.uk. When typing it in your browser, you will only need to enter www.datrim.co.uk, your browser will add the http:// automatically.
The choice of domain name is important for a business and should be given some thought. Usually, you will choose name that contains your business name, such as www.yourbusinessname.com. Although, if your business name is a commonly used name or phrase, you will probably find that is is already taken. Try to keep it as short as possible so that people will remember it.
Domain names are controlled by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). There is an annual fee to keep a domain name which varies according to the type of name, but the cost is quite low - approximately £10 per year.
We will help you to choose a suitable name and take care of registering it for you. This cost is included whenever we build a website.
