A domain name is your website name. It is the address where online users can access your website on the internet. Your domain name is the online identity of your business that also often reflects what products and services you offer.


Why should you get a custom domain?

A customised domain name plays a significant role in driving more traffic to your online store.

  • It adds professional credibility to your business and separates you from other online stores.
  • Increases your brand visibility. Much like a storefront window, the right domain will create awareness and attract customers.
  • Increases your search engine ranking. As your business grows and you develop your online store with quality content, your domain name will become more recognisable in search engines. This will help you draw more customers to your online store.
