Domaincheck is a leading domain name registration company
When it comes to setting up online, the first stage of any endeavour is to register a domain name that reflects your website’s ethos. Brand names, associated industries, and even an individual’s actual name are all popular choices for selection, applied to top level domains appropriate to your purpose.
For those unfamiliar to the world of online trading and sharing, this task in itself can be daunting, and the concept of TLD’s, multiple domains and the importance of brand preservation can be a minefield. With cybersquatters and domain sharks creating an unfriendly and expensive market for webmasters, it’s becoming increasingly crucial to ensure your website domain is controlled by an official registrar, with a reputation of honesty and reliability in the industry.
Domaincheck are a UK based business who specialise in the registration process of domain names. Since 1995, Domaincheck have been providing individuals and businesses with fairly priced options on popular domain names, including .com and .co.uk suffixes, supported by hosting packages applicable to most website projects.
In May this year, .co.uk controller Nominet announced their multi-year registration process, which enabled many webmasters to preserve their brand for longer periods, without concern of renewal fees and changing flexibility. The suffix had previously only been available for a maximum of two years at a time, and increased to a maximum of 10 years. As predicted, this led to a surge of .co.uk registrations, and many businesses new to the world of the web discovered that their desired domain name had been snapped up by a competitor.
If nothing else, this behaviour further highlighted the necessity for business owners to become aware of brand preservation, as trademark rules greatly differ from the norm in cyberspace. The idea of managing multiple domain names, whether parked, re-directed or utilised is off-putting for many and can be time-consuming and difficult to track. Domain Name Portfolio Management is a service that, as a result, has seen an increase in demand.
The fact is that although this process sounds extensive, with so many avenues to consider during registration, it is only the first stage of online success. By taking the time to ensure your domain name selection is concise and appropriate, you could save time and money at later periods when exploring website development, design and optimisation.
