So you have a web site... How does someone find it? Well, usually, they type a domain name or URL (uniform resource locator) into their browser.
If you own your own domain name, potential visitors to your site can find you by simply typing in your domain name, such as:
This is a lot easier for customers to remember than some of the long URLs other web hosting companies give out. How would you like to have to give out something like this?
Not only is this a mouthful, but what exactly is that squiggly character? Well, it's a tilde, but try explaining that to someone over the phone when you try to give them your web address.
Picking the right domain name for your web site is important, as you want to make it as easy as possible for potential customers and visitors to find you. Even though many good names have already been taken, there are still quite a few good ones left. Be create and try using a combination of words or alternate words. Even if a domain like carsbyjoe.com might be taken, autosbyjoe.com might not.
Whatever domain name you decide on, remember that with Seagull Networks, if you select a new domain name, we'll register it for you for only $20/year. Network Solutions and REGISTER.COM both charge $35/year, so that's a $15/year savings! If you want to use an existing domain name, we'll make the transfer request for you, but depending on the type of domain name and the registrar it was registered with, the transfer may take anywhere from 24 hours to a week or more.
