How to choose a domain name to register
Even if you don't want a website now, another good reason to register a domain name is to protect the name for your use when you are ready to create a website. Domain names are being registered every day and therefore the options are being reduced on a daily basis. Register your domain name today and keep it safe! If someone else has already registered the domain name you want, you may be able to buy it from them. Contact us if you have further queries about obtaining a domain name which has already been registered.
How long can the domain name be?
Hyphenated domain names
Hyphenated names can be handy if the domain name you want is not available. So you can register fly-fishing.com if flyfishing.com is not available. However they are not remembered well. If you tell someone you visited "Fly Fishing dot com" they may remember it as "flyfishing.com" and go to your competitor's website instead. If you can't get the domain name you want, try registering a variant or the plural version, eg. flowers.com instead of flower.com
Should you get a .co.za or a .com domain?
.com is more internationally recognised, but if you plan to do business only in South Africa it's best to have a homegrown .co.za domain. This shows support for South Africa and South Africans, and shows that you yourself are a South African enterprise. If you want you can register both the .com and the .co.za versions of your domain name to protect the name, and decide which one to use as your main domain (if you are a shipping or export company dealing with an overseas market it may be better to trade with the .com as your main domain). Some people set up a different website for local customers in South Africa on their .co.za domain, and a different site for international customers on their .com domain.
