First step. Domain Name

Having a domain name is the first step to achieving success for your business website. A domain name usually gives your business a professional look and is a major selling point. In fact, you will realize that your business will only be taken seriously when your email communication it tied to your domain. Domain names are handy in helping you project an air of professionalism that can in turn help you land significant contracts or deals.

Here are some quick and easy stepson how to buy a domain name:

  • Use a check availability tool to see if your preferred domain name is available or has already been taken up by another business. You can use the tool to filter domain names that are popular as well as those that are available in Europe or globally. The tool for checking domain availability is a great starting point in your search for your name.
  • Suggest a domain name. The domain suggestion tool is designed to provide you with a variety of alternative names if your preferred name is not available. The suggestions will be based on the popularity of keywords, relevance of the words, and domain extension among other things.
  • If you still are not able to find a suitable domain name, you can opt to go for premium domain name. Premium domain names are easy to buy like normal domains. Even then, they cost a little more than the normal domain and you are highly likely to find the domain name that you want.
