A domain name is a unique address which points to your website such as www.getnoticedlocally.co.uk. We can buy your .co.uk domain name and this will be included in your package at no extra cost. In consultation with you we will choose the most appropriate domain name for your business.
In most cases we can simply point the A-Record of your domain to our server and you retain full control of your domain. However if you prefer, we can transfer your domain name from an old provider to us at no extra cost to your package.
Yes you will be able to have any prefixes attached to your domain name. For example [email protected] . Please note that the email address(es) we set you up with will be a forwarding email address meaning any emails that are sent to that address will be automatically forwarded on to the email address you currently use. We can setup real email addresses through our preferred provider at an additional monthly management fee to cover the administration of the domain.
