Domain Names

It's pretty obvious how important a domain name is to having a web presence.

A domain name is the name or word that a person types into their browser's address bar to get to their website. This is often commonly referred to as an url (uniform resource locator) or also a web address.

Picking a domain name is a very important step when beginning your website. It is not something to take lightly. Once you launch the site and start marketing, you will not be able to change this easily because your customers will associate your domain name with your website and your company.

At Universal 4 Hosting, we understand how important it is to have a domain Registrar that you can trust. It is for this very reason that we have partnered with Tucows and their reseller program.

Being a Tucows Reseller we have our own Shopco Storefront for domains. This allows us to resell domain names directly and since Tucows runs the backend, your domain purchase is handled directly by the Registrar.

If you haven't heard of Tucows yet, they are one of the largest "ICANN-Accredited" Domain Registrars in the world. In fact, if you checked the list of Accredited Registrars at ICANN you might be surprised how short the list really is compared to the thousands and thousands of places you are able to purchase domain names on the internet.

We chose to partner with Tucows because of their accreditation and their excellent reputation of customer service. They have excellent tech support and know how to treat customers well whether you purchase a single domain or you are a large volume domain owner and have a portfolio of thousands of names.

Since we are a premium domain reseller, we have set our domain pricing for domain names at a very attractive price point. In fact we have domains starting at just $12.95 a year for .com and .net

Keep Branding In Mind When Buying A Domain Name

When many people consider a website they often think of .com's first, and this holds true when you have a unique brand or corporate name. But there have been over 100 million domain names sold since the beginning of the internet and you may not always be able to buy the domain name you want at first try.

Be prepared to try other forms of the name, and also keep an open mind on purchasing the .net or .org If the name you want is in fact available in the .com version, great, but it on the spot. But in addition to that, you also at times have to consider getting a few of the other extensions in order to help protect your brand. This allows you to point these other names at the main website, and it also keeps your competitors from buying them to capitalize on you the traffic that your brand may bring.

When considering what domain to use, you want to seriously consider your company name, your brand, the name of a retial location the name might represent, some of the basic marketing strategy you may employ as well as countless other things.

Be prepared to try other extensions of the name if the .com is not available. And also be careful not to use a name that is a registered trademark name for a big fortune 500 company. Although it's not available, you would never want to buy a name like coke.net or google.org. Sure in the early days it might draw a bit of type-in traffic but it would quickly draw the attention of their lawyers and they would take the name away from you and tie you up in court and it just wouldn't be worth it.

We understand that choosing a domain name for the website can be nearly as important as naming the business or your company. For this reason we are able to set up a consultation with you to help and guide you along the path of fully understanding the benefits of choosing a domain name wisely at the beginning.
