Domain Names


Choose A Memorable Domain Name!

Choosing an effective domain name can help your online presence!

How to choose the best name for your business:

  • Try to avoid using just letters because they can mean anything - www.xyz.com doesn't tell your viewers anything about you.
  • Try to keep your domain name as short as you can, although sometimes a longer name simply cannot be avoided.
  • You don't necessarily need to use your business name, as long as it appears prominently throughout your website.
  • Make sure that no one in your market area has the same or similar name to confuse your potential customers.

As part of our "One-Stop-Shop" concept, we partner with a large Canadian Domain Registrar to offer domain name registration services.

  • We will help you research the best name possible, and we will look after the registration and renewals for you.
  • All domain name registrations are registered in the name of the business owner.
  • We put our contact information on the worldwide directory listing in order to try to protect our clients from spammers and scammers, as well as constant unwanted phone calls trying to talk you into something, but the domain is yours!

The ideal domain name should indicate who you are and what you do, using keywords to describe your products or services.

What is involved in transferring a domain name to a new registrar?

Transferring a domain to our partner Registrar

  • There are technical steps to follow but it's a pretty straightforward process as long as you have access to your account at your current Registrar (example: Go Daddy, etc.) and we will do the tech stuff for you.
  • Once you have access to your own account, we will start the process from our Registrar's end.
  • Domain name transfers are fairly quick, depending on which Registrar you are moving your domain from.

Transferring a domain to another Registrar

  • Should you ever decide you want to go somewhere else for your web services, you take your domain name with you. As long as you paid for it, it is yours!
  • Any up-to-date account owner can transfer their domain name to wherever they wish - just one technical step and it's done!
