A Guide to Domain Names & Choosing One.

Find answers to common questions regarding
choosing your domain name.

When you take out a yearly hosting account with us your first domain is free depending on the extension required. For example .com and .co.uk would be free. Certain domains like .scot are more expensive so not included in this option, contact us for prices on this. If you require any extra domains after that prices start at £25.00 per year.
Feel free to use our domain checker to see if your domain is available.

When choosing the right domain name you should always keep it and your website’s name as close to each other as possible. You do not want to confuse visitors because your domain name seems to be totally different from your website name, especially if you are running an e-commerce website.

Choose a name that is not too long and is not too confusing so that visitors have a hard time remembering it. In most situations, the shorter your domain name is, the better off you will be. This is because people will remember the URL and they will continue to visit your site in the future. Also always try to avoid using acronyms, dashes or other symbols as they may also confuse potential visitors for the first time.

When dealing with most websites and finding the perfect domain name you should always keep in mind that it’s not what you like, but what you have researched and know that your visitors/customers will like. Just because you like the name or think it sounds good does not mean everyone else is going to like it.

Try using keywords that describe your business and the services you offer. For example; if you’re a tyre fitting business, you may want to register ObanTyreFitters.com or TyreReplacementOban.com. Include the keywords that people enter when searching for your products or services. It helps improve your rank on search engines (which increases traffic) and just makes more sense to your visitors/customers.

The “.com” is the most popular top-level domain and it can be hard to find one that is available. In most cases, you should favor a “.com” however if you are planning to sell in a specific country only you should consider a country specific domain such as “co.uk” for the United Kingdom.

If your business is local, consider including your town or city in your domain name to make it easy for local customers to find and remember. Example: obanwebdesign.com

Make sure when choosing your domain that it isn’t trademarked, copyrighted or being used by another company. You could end up in court facing huge legal fees and also loose your domain.

Ewan Baxter, 26th January 2021

Brilliant service from Paul designing us a new website for our campervan hire company. Paul took ALL the stress and worry out of the process. He had great creative ideas for the site and clever solutions to all our questions. Paul also helped us non-techies understand how to manage and edit our site going forward. The whole process was smooth and great value for money. Highly recommended!

Sally, 30th November 2022

I had a very specific brief that I handed to Paul who dealt with everything from start to finish, literally from scratch. I had need only for a brochure style site with information and a contact page… but I also needed a logo that was about the company but also about my personality too and with barely more than three words of description of what I wanted he designed me the best and most brilliant logo I could have asked for! I’m so chuffed with it all and the speed of delivery coupled with exceptional value for money… well, I would not hesitate to recommend Paul and Oban Web Design to you! Outstanding all round!

Kerry King, 31st March 2022
