Domains & Hosting
Purchasing a Domain Name
Every business needs to register its own unique and/or powerful generic domain name as 1,000's of these addresses are being registered every day. Dynamic Computing Solutions can register your domain name so that your web site is visible on the World Wide Web.
A Domain Name is simply a unique name that identifies your company on the internet and allows people to find your site. Domain names like www.dcsolutions.co.uk should represent your company or the services you offer. When you purchase a domain name you also get email accounts with this, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com. When you buy a domain name it becomes your property but it must be registered every two years for it to remain in your control.
The end part of your domain name is called the extension and this is either country specific or describes the type of business you do. you can register the same domain name with different extensions if you wish.
Examples of some common extensions :
- .com : this is short for commercial but is also the standard USA extension
- .co.uk : this is a special extension for the UK
- .eu : this is a relatively new domain name for Europe
- .biz : business extension
- .org : this is an extension for charities and organizations
- .net : commonly used for Internet Service Providers
There are many more country specific extensions, and we can discuss your requirements with you and can register one for you.
We can also arrange the hosting of your website and aim to help you achieve the best possible Internet experience. Many companies are able to offer value plans as all responses are made by computer but our hosting company answers our queries by a human!
