What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is simply the address that people use to find your website. In other words it’s what you type into the address bar to go directly to the site. Most internet sites have ‘www.’ before the domain name.
For example: http://www.google.co.uk – google.co.uk is the domain name. (in today’s browsers, it’s not necessary to type the symbols http:// ).
The final part of most domain names is called the TLD (Top Level Domain) or extension, and is usually used to identify the geographical location or type of organisation.
|.co.uk||This is usually used for UK companies|
|.com||This is usually used for either US or Global companies|
|.co||New domain name in 2010 & used for Global Companies|
|.gov.uk||UK Government websites|
|.org||Organisations which are usually of a non commercial nature|
|.eu||European based companies or organisations|
This is just a small sample of the TLD’s available. You can try different TLD’s depending on your location and requirements. Remember that you should try and give your visitor an idea of your name and location using your domain name. That is why we have chosen gnetix.co.uk (Gnetix Web Hosting Company, UK branch).
What should you choose for your Domain Name?
You need to choose a name that is relevant to your site and that is still available. The problem that many people face these days is that their first choice domain name has already been taken.
For example if you want to create a website for a building company the chances of ‘builders.co.uk’ being available are very slim. However, you could look for alternatives such as ‘newbuildingcompany.co.uk’ or ‘buildersrus.co.uk’.
If you need help finding a suitable domain please do not hesitate to contact us. Alternatively, try searching different names using the search box at the top of this page.
Remember try to choose a suitable TLD as well as the domain name.
