New Domain Names for your Business

I expect you’ve heard that there are now many more options available for your web and email domain names.

We think it’s really exciting – and about time too – that you no longer need to be restricted to .com or .co.uk endings to your e-addresses. Now you can have:


.app
.blog

.cloud
.london

.ltd
.sale

.website

 

Great fun!

And lots of options there. But there are plenty of serious business reasons to consider reserving domain names early:

Your brand is important – and you might want to consider reserving names so that no-one can abuse your image or even, in the worst case, set up a fraudulent copy of your online trading presence.

You might, in the future, want to have different micro-sites for different business units (.homes, .builders, .estate, and .auction for an estate agent, for example, or .flights, .holiday, .villas and .cruises for a travel agent)

You might just want to block cybersquatters before they can move in on your territory.

Good domain names are good business – so if you can see one that might be useful in the future (that is, more memorable, shorter or business-appropriate than your current domain), we recommend that you register them quickly.

How can SITOC help you here?

It is not expensive or difficult to register domain names; but renewals, multiple entries, and investigation all take time and effort. We can:

research and recommend the right domain names for your business

complete the registration processses on your behalf

handle renewals for you smoothly and reliably

In summary, we recommend that you investigate the new top level domain names now available and, if you would like us to, we would be happy to help.
