What’s in a name?

When setting up a website, choosing the right name can make a huge difference to the amount of visitors you receive so here’s a few tips;

  • Try and choose a name that’s easy to remember and not too long and not too difficult to spell.
  • Try and avoid dashes as these may seem like a good idea until you try and spell out the domain name to somebody over the phone.
  • Choose a top level domain name (TLD) that suits the type of business you are trying to promote, for example, internet based services tend to use .net, UK businesses tend to use .co.uk and can now use the shorter .uk domain names too.
