If your business name is important to you then we strongly recommend you registering your matching domain name. This can be done from £9.99.
It is crucial to have your own domain name if you want a presence on the internet. You can use a domain name for your website and email addresses. For example, our domain name is duport.co.uk, our website is located at www.duport.co.uk and we have email addresses such as email@example.com.
Your customers will expect to reach you by email and a generic address such as firstname.lastname@example.org does not inspire confidence. If you don’t invest in a professional domain name then what does that suggest about the quality of your products and services?
Domain names are becoming increasingly difficult to purchase because some companies register names in the expectation that you will pay inflated fees later to own them.
