Which domain name is right for me?
With so many domain names and extensions available, choosing the right domain name can be a little confusing. Here's our top tips to help you make the right decision:
A domain name is the address of your site - hostyourchurch.co.uk is ours. Domain names can have a variety of endings (known as Top Level Domains - TLDs). There are two main types of TLDs that are used, generic TLDs (gTLD) such as .com, .org and country code TLDs (ccTLD) such as .uk.
In general terms, .com & .co.uk are used by companies, .net for those providing internet services, .org & .org.uk for organisations, and .info for sites of an informative nature. However these are not strict rules, and so to an extent, the choice of TLD is yours.
When choosing the 'name' part of your domain name, here are some general principles to keep in mind:
- Keep it short - a shorter domain name is easier to remember, and easier for visitors to type into their browser.
- Make it memorable - Along with keeping your domain name short, keep it simple. If you're St Philomena's Church in Newcastle Upon Tyne, st-philomenas-in-newcastle-upon-tyne.org.uk is a little long - stphilomenas.org.uk would be a better and more memorable option. Of course a lot of domain names have been taken already, so you may have to check and be a little imaginative in your choices. Use our domain name checker to find your preferred domain name.
