The most successful businesses use the same set of words and images in all customer touchpoints—on their website, in their emails and order confirmations, on their signs, etc. This is branding at its simplest. And the digital pieces of a brand all spring from a domain name. That's where GoDaddy comes in!
Stake your claim: Registering domains related to your client's big idea or business name keeps others from using those names to pull traffic away from their website.
Take control: With a domain name, your clients can send their customers, friends and prospects wherever they want—whether that’s a website, blog, social page or storefront.
Protect your client's rights: Your client's domain gives them an exclusive piece of digital real estate that cannot be used by anyone else as long as it’s registered to them.
Currently, we support the following top-level domains (TLDs):
Currently, only one domain per business/per account can be purchased.
No, not at this time.
Yes! Your business can purchase more than one domain. This is especially important if your business wishes to own the .com, .net, .org, and more for the same domain.
- Make it easy to remember. This is why many businesses get domains with their business names in them. Some people, including Bob Parsons, even choose their business name after they have a domain they like.
- Don’t register one that’s trademarked, copyrighted or being used by another company. This can lead to losing the domain and/or legal problems.
- Shorter is usually better because they’re easier for customers to remember.It’s also easier to get matching usernames for Facebook, Twitter and any other social media accounts you have.
- Got a local business? Include your neighborhood, city or country in your domain so local customers can quickly see where you are.
- Avoid numbers or hyphens. Anyone who hears your web address won't know if you're using a numeral (5) or “five.” If your business name has a number in it, register both versions, with the numeral and with the number spelled out. Dashes are just asking for trouble and generally look unprofessional.
Domain registrars require domains to be registered for a minimum of one year. This cannot be overwritten/worked around.
