Is there anything I need to consider when registering my domain name?

Domain names are being registered constantly so the main concern you need to look into is to check whether the one you wish to use is already taken. You should take time to think what you would like your domain name to be – it should represent your company or website and be easy to remember at the same time. A domain name like amazon.co.uk is hard to forget and is known worldwide for quality. There are a number of restrictions on what characters can be in your domain name. You are limited to 67 characters and you can use letters, numbers and dashes in the name. The dash – symbol is the only non alpha/numeric character you may use. The name does not include the dot, www or TLD. If you are unsure of whether you can use your chosen name, we can help you - just submit a ticket.
