3 Simple Steps to Scoring a Domain Name for your Business

Dream & DoComment

Have you checked whether the domain name is available for your business?

Step 1: type it into the search bar of your internet browser. If a site exists, sorry, it’s already taken! You’ll have to come up with another name. Also remember that .com, .com.au, .net and others might be available. So don’t give up hope straight away. But think about whether you really want someone searching you and accidentally reaching your competitor.

Step 2: the domain name might be available for sale through Crazy Domains or a similar company, so you can go direct through them. Occasionally, if it’s a popular domain, someone in China might own it and want to sell it to you for $1000s! How bad do you want that name?!

Step 3: you can also buy your domain name through your hosting site such as Squarespace or Wordpress. At Dream & Do, most of our sites are built by us through Squarespace and we easily register the domain name that way.
