.com or .co.uk ?
A Domain name is a portion of an email address or website which is unique, for example our domain name is pearcewebdesign.com.
Domain names are surprisingly inexpensive (typically £5/year for a .co.uk address and £10 a year for a .com address).
Having a .co.uk or .com address not only makes you or your business appear more professional, it is also more easily remembered, essential if you are dictating it over the phone or someone sees it on a vehicle or advertisement.
Pearce Web Design will advise you on which domain names are available and register them on your behalf.
Domain names typically come with several useful email features; some may depend on the hosting options you have chosen (see our hosting page):
- Multiple email mailboxes - you can set up several names as email
addresses, eg. you could have email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org,
email@example.com and so forth.
- email forwarding - emails can be forwarded on to another address,
for example if you are away. Some may prefer to have email forwarded
to their usual email address.
- autoresponders - you can set up a reply which is sent automatically,
for example to let customers know you are out of the office for a number
- sms alerts - a text message is sent to your mobile phone alerting you of incoming email. This can be configured to work only for certain senders of email.
