Domain Names & Web Hosting
“I receive a really great level of service from Domaincheck and Zebra.
In fact, I wish I’d known about them sooner!”
Domain Name Registration
There are many reasons for buying a domain name, regardless of whether you are an individual or a business, and purchasing one can benefit you in many ways. For businesses, your domain name can become a crucial part of your corporate identity. When customers visit your web site, your domain name can match your trading name or brand. Many people will try yourbusinessname.com before even searching for your business via a search engine.
There can only be one of each domain name, so you’d best register yours before someone else does!
This could save your business money and time in the future. Even if you have no intention of developing a website right now, we strongly recommended that you register your domain name now, because there are no guarantees that it will still be available in a year, a month, a week , or even tomorrow.
nTLDS - New Top Level Domains
As time goes on, more and more domain names are occupied and renewed. There are only so many ‘.coms’ and ‘.co.uks’ out there, so domain regulation authorities have had to expand their Top Level Domains to cover wider, more expansive range of website suffixes that can be used by anyone. These domains are referred to as nTLDs (new top level domains).
Take, for example, the release of the .dental suffix:
Mypractice.dental is instantly recognisable a being related to the dental industry and is surely a must-have TLD for those working within it. Similarly the likes of .catering, .cleaning, .education, .florist, .pub, .rentals and hundreds more give a potential visitor insight into a business before you even view a site.

Domain Dispute Resolution
We know all about cyber-squatting and trademark infringement and the impact it can have on your business, but what do you do if someone is holding your domain name to ransom, or claiming they own a domain as they leave your organisation and try to take it with them?
Shouldn’t your domain be registered in your name rather than the design agency you used?
