Tips for choosing a domain name
Keep it Short, keep it simple
To find your site people need to be able to remember your address and easily type it into their browser. Aim to register the shortest name that your customers and visitors will associate with your website.
co.uk, com, eu, net, org...?
It is a good idea to register several similar domain names, particularly if you own a trademark for a certain name. If possible register the .co.uk, .com, .eu and .net. These are the most popular domain names and by registering all of them you can help to prevent cyber squatters and losing traffic.
Consider common typos
If you have a domain name that can easily by pluralised or miss-spelled (e.g. we have registered abingerwebs.com) consider registering those as well to stop traffic going elsewhere.
Don't Shell Out Large Amounts of £££
Don’t settle for the first price you come across. Some companies still sell domain names for as much as £100. To put that in to perspective, AbingerWeb domains start at £2.79 per year!
Register Your Domain NOW
You must register as soon as possible, or risk getting stuck with "the-domain-name-that-no-one-wanted.net". You do not have to have a Webmaster or an ecommerce department or a web design consultant... you don't even need a web page. Simply search for your domain name and register it yourself. Simple!
You can use the box at the top of this page to check if a domain name is available, or sign up/login to your AbingerWeb Internet account and select the domain name link, which can check one name with multiple suffixes at once.
