The domain name (or web address) is merely a simple means of directly accessing your web site. Your own domain name, ie. www.myfirm.co.uk, will usually cost around £59 for HathawayUK to register and includes 2 years nic registration, thereafter the registration is paid annually, at the rate charged by nic. (nic is the regulatory body that keeps track of domain names)
However, many firms choose to use a derivative of their site host, ie. www.myfirm.hathawayuk.co.uk, which is automatically generated on creation of your site and involves no additional or separate charge. It remains exclusively yours for as long as you maintain your web site and is included in your monthly maintenance charges, only applicable if you take out a maintenance contract.
address(es) are created in conjunction with your domain name registration,
ie. email@example.com, and messages will arrive on your PC complete
with return email addresses for correspondence.
If you prefer not to have direct email facilities, an email
link (eg. firstname.lastname@example.org) can be created for your web site
that will route messages to hathawayUK.
Such messages are then faxed to your office at no extra charge.
In either case, the email links on your web site will open
an Enquiry Registration Form designed to pre-qualify the enquiries
you receive, enabling you to quickly determine enquirers' requirements
and respond to best effect.
