Every website must have it’s own unique address. This is called a domain name and must be registered so that it cannot be taken by others. Once your domain name is registerd, a space needs to be acquired to hold the files generated from the subsequent web design.
While naming a business is often a long and thoughtful process, choosing a website address is often regarded as a much smaller decision. According to a new survey, 41% of UK businesses spend less than an hour choosing their website address, and over half don’t think to seek a second opinion on this critical decision.
Unsurprisingly, one third of companies later regret it, believing their revenue could improve if they had a better domain name. A quarter of companies worry that their website address isn’t catchy enough, while 5% of business owners admitted they had forgotten their own address entirely. Businesses should consider all available options before purchasing their primary domain name.
