With prices starting at £10 a year **, a domain name costs very little, but your domain name is invaluable. It is your identity on the Internet. It is your website and your email. You can't put a price on it!
It takes some effort to make sure your domain name is set up and looked after properly. Let HTL take care of all these domain name dilemmas, so you don't need to worry about it.
Use your DNS system to the max. An SPF record helps stop spammers from impersonating your email address!
Ensure your domain name is registered to you. Not an ISP, not your web designer, not your IT support company, not the name of the office manager that left three years ago – You! This happens more often than you think! We will check this for you, and help you change the details if required.
Protect your name. Consider registering other versions of your own domain name. If you already have .com and .co.uk, maybe you should consider .net and .eu? We can offer you just about every name in the world … there are hundreds of possibilities … List of top level domains
If you have registered multiple domain names … don’t just let them lie idle, put them to work! Redirect them to your main website, or create country specific, or product specific portal websites. It’s easy!
What about names for your products, services, trademarks? Do they need names too?
Remember to renew it! If you have only paid for a year, make sure you renew next year. If you don’t – someone else will! We renew everything for you – so no need to worry!
A domain name will not function without a DNS service. This is the system that tells the world where your emails should go, or where your website is. It is easily overlooked, but it is vital. Without it your name doesn’t work. Make sure you have at least two fast DNS servers – we offer three as standard :-)
