About Domain Names

What is a Domain Name?

Your website’s domain name is its address on the web. It is how people locate your website from the millions of other websites. For example, WebCrate’s domain name is webcrate.co.uk. The part following the dot is called the extension (or TLD). Other popular extensions that are available include .com, .org and .net.

Choosing a Domain Name

A good domain name is short and easy to remember, and of course it should include the name of your business or terms relevant to what your website is about. Many of the most popular domain names have already been registered, so you may need to get creative or use alternative extensions (.biz, .org etc.). You may like to consider registering the same name with multiple extensions in order to protect your brand. You can check the availability of a domain name here:
