Every website needs a unique address (called a 'domain name'). Although it is possible for more than one website to share a domain name (and use a qualified sub-domain), it is much more common and professional for a website to have its own domain name. Your own e-mail addresses can then be added to the domain name, providing a connected and consistent naming approach for business cards and signs.
It's not possible to own a domain name, you can only rent the domain name for a specified period.
Domain names are managed by organisations who have been given permission and management authority, depending on the domain name suffix (known as the TLD). In the case of .uk names these are all ultimately managed by Nominet.uk
When your website goes live you will need your own unique domain name www........co.uk. We have tools that help you find and purchase the domain name that is right for you. Choosing the right domain name is an important decision but it's not as easy as you might think. Do you want to use your business name, or maybe your keywords?
Why not opt for the best of both worlds? We can configure your site so that it works with two domain names.
One domain name with your keywords to get found on Google and one extra domain name with your business name that you can add to your business cards, shop or van.
If you are struggling to choose, talk to us and we can guide you through the choice.

If you are struggling to find your ideal domain name, try our variation checker. Just add your trade or business type and the area that you service and we'll show you variations and show you which ones are currently available.
If you have already purchased your own domain name then you can use this with your website.
The domain registrar you used to purchase your website will provide you with a control panel that allows you to make changes to the domain name and point it to your website.
Since going live with the site, I have had a lot more enquiries from interested parents.
My web site shot up the search engine so quickly and was on the first page of Google after just three weeks.
If someone had told me that I would be able to build my own websites and manage it day to day, I would have laughed at them. But I did and still do !
The amount of books I sell every month easily pays for the site. I've had orders from the USA, Australia, Fiji, Malaysia and Skegness
