Your company website is arguably its most important advertising tool. All week long, the MeloTel Blog has been focused on the concept of properly keeping it updated so that you can maximize the benefits that it can provide you. And in a day and age when people are surfing the internet each and every day, it’s wise to have a strong online presence that makes your brand look like a top contender in its industry.
And while we’ve been happy to provide the “do’s” and “don’ts” of modern day website maintenance this week, there is a step that must be taken long before you work on updating your site. And that’s creating the website to begin with. And what’s the very first step? Creating a domain name, of course! This can actually be a lot more difficult a task than you may think. And that’s because so many domain names have already been taken.
Perhaps, your best bet is simply going with your company name. It’s the natural choice. After all, this is what MeloTel did! However, your company name may not be as short as ours is. And it’s definitely a good idea to select a domain name that isn’t too lengthy and is easy to type. You should avoid dashes and other punctuation that requires you to spell it out when informing someone of it. It’s good idea to keep it simple.
At MeloTel, we make it super easy to find a domain name that works for you! Simply visit our Customer Portal and you’ll find a nifty search field that encourages you to “Begin the search for your perfect domain name”. Simply type in your idea and you’ll be informed within about a second if the domain name is available or not. If it is not, you will be given a number of similar options to choose from.
Or, of course, you can choose to begin your search all over again with another domain name choice. If you don’t go with something that incorporates the name of your business in some way, we recommend selecting a domain name that provides an accurate depiction of what it is you offer. Something that is both catchy and relevant is a good way to intrigue internet surfers. One of our esteemed clients, Synergy Marketing, has done just that with their domain name.
To find them online, you can go to TheBestPromoProducts.ca. Pretty direct statement, isn’t it? With their domain name, Synergy Marketing is essentially promoting its unofficial motto that states that they provide the best promotional products in their industry. Can you do something similar with your domain name? The one you choose deserves the same amount of consideration that you put into choosing the name of your company.
At MeloTel, we provide clients with more than just the ability to select ideal domain names for their company websites. We also provide Domain, Email & Web Hosting. With these services, MeloTel clients enjoy web hosting services that establish a Fortune 500 configuration. We do not share IPs and all communications are protected by encrypted SSL certificates for both incoming and outgoing mail.
No matter the size of your business, our high performance, world class network and state of the art data centres can be relied upon to keep your company website in tip-top shape. None of our plans require any term commitments as you are free to cancel at any time. For more information, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-888-MELOTEL or use the “Live Sales Chat” feature on our website!
