Things You Wish You Knew Before Securing Your Domain Name
Naturally, a lot of effort is put into creating the perfect domain name. We know that a good name has to be catchy, easily pronounceable and memorable - and that people invest a substantial amount of time into finding the right name. Why is it then that the same amount of effort isn't put into your domain name?
A great domain name can push you ahead of the competition by allowing you to stand out and become an industry leader!
This is where new top-level domains (nTLDs) come into play. A good domain name can be the boost your business needs to grow and stay top of mind. Why not use this opportunity to show customers what your business does before investing time into advertising and marketing?
