What is a Domain Name and Why Do You Need One?

dotscot hoth

A domain name is what identifies you on the internet or on e-mail. A unique name is important to help you be found quickly and the more the name reflects your business name or what your group does, the better it is.

At Caledonian Websites we give the opportunity to choose a name that is perfect for your business or group. This will translate to a website address such as www.yourperfectname.co.uk and an e-mail address of [email protected]

It provides the perfect start to having an internet presence, onto which you can build your website, your online shop, etc.

If you have a domain name already but want to put it to better use with customised mail, website, etc, or want to move your current hosting to Caledonian Websites, we can manage the switch easily.

We can help you at every stage, so let's get started choosing you new name!
