What is a domain name?
A domain name is your unique address on the Internet. A catchy, memorable domain name will help people find your website and remember your brand. A domain name is also a great way of branding your personalised email accounts (e.g. you@yourbusiness.co.za). Still a bit lost? Don’t worry, we explain everything in detail here.
Why do I need a domain?
Registering a domain is the first step in establishing an online identity for you or your business. Having a unique domain name allows you to create a customised website and have professional-looking email addresses.
What makes for a good domain name?
Keep your domain name as short and as memorable as possible, but try to avoid using hyphens. Think of an acronym if you have a long business name, and make sure you also register your full business name to protect your brand. Keeping things as simple as possible will ensure that people will remember you.
Someone's taken my preferred domain name! What do I do?
We can’t always get what we want, including certain domain names! But you’ll be glad to know that there are now hundreds of domain extensions for you to choose from. New geographic domain extensions such as .joburg, .capetown and .durban are available for immediate registration. You can also search for an alternate such as a .com or .org, among many others. Our intelligent search function will also suggest domain names to help make it easier for you to find one that works for you. So get searching!
How long does it take to register my domain?
We like to move fast at 1-grid – all domain names are registered instantly, ensuring that you secure your unique online address immediately.
Should I choose a local domain (.co.za) or an international one (.com)?
This is up to you. The rule of thumb is: the more domain names you have, the better your chances are of getting found and succeeding online. Having more than one domain also helps to prevent competitors from registering domains relevant to your brand, when they belong to you instead. You can always choose your preferred domain, but make sure you register more than one.
Why is purchasing more than one domain so important for my brand?
The more domain names you have pointing to your website, the more likely people are to find you. We always recommend registering a geographic extension, such as .joburg, .capetown and .durban, to let customers know where you’re located in addition to a generic extension, such as .co.za or .com. By registering one of these, you’re protecting your brand from anyone else who wants to register it.
Can I add web hosting later?
You bet! You can add web hosting at any time by either ordering directly through our website or straight from your Customer Zone.
