Find your perfect domain
What is a Domain Name and what can I do with it?
A domain name is the first part of a website address after the www. You enter this into a web browser (e.g. www.domain.com) to find a web page on the internet. It is also the last part after the @ sign in an email address.
Domain names are used for both business and personal use, including websites, online shops, and email addresses.
You can do a lot with a domain name, from creating your own personal email address to building a website. To get the most out of your domain name you will need a Web Hosting package to get the website online.
What is a TLD and which should I choose?
TLD stands for Top Level Domain, and is the extension following the final dot in a domain name. e.g. The TLD in www.example.com is .com.
There are different types of TLDs:
- Generic Top Level Domains (gTLD)
- For example .com .gov these are typically used for organisations
- Country Code Top Level Domains (ccTLD)
- For example .uk for the United Kingdom
- Unsponsored Top Level Domains (uTLD)
The choice of TLD is really down to your preference. The .com is seen as international whereas .co.uk is available for the UK only.
