How to Register a Domain Name

How to register a domain name is a common question, so read on to find out more.

It is important to choose a name that reflects your business and is memorable and easy to remember. It is also possible to add hyphens to make it easier to read like my-domain-name.co.uk, but remember the shorter the name the easier it is to remember.

If you are a UK business a .co.uk domain name is the best option. Selling internationally may require a .com extension, today though there are many options, .net, .co, .biz and even .photography and .guru!

You can register a domain name through a domain registrar such as FABI Hosting.
