Get the right domain name

Think very carefully about your domain name before you start. A domain name is the first part of the website address which a visitor will use to call up your website. It can say a lot about your company, and it's important that it's memorable, punchy and appropriate.

The best names are usually the key words of the name of your company. If you are a brand, try to get the exact name. If your own name is important — for instance — if you are an author, use it as your domain name.

if you have a service you want to offer, use the keywords that people might search for in Google and If you are specific to the UK, a .co.uk domain name is probably sufficient as it shows your geographical location but there are plenty of alternatives available.

You can use the tool below to check if the domain name you want is available. Just enter the domain, without www and check the extention box/es.
