The domain name is the main "address" of your site, e.g. vectis-webdesign.com. There are a number of suffixes available, among the most common being .com .co.uk .org and .net. Each suffix creates a different domain, so for example the domains vectis-webdesign.com and vectis-webdesign.co.uk are totally different domains and can be owned by different organisations.
If you already have an internet connection it is likely that your ISP ("Internet Service Provider") will allow you to have some web space with your account, and you would have an address such as smithy.mysite.orange.co.uk. For the following reasons we would however always recommend that you get your own domain name:
Please note that all domains registered on behalf of clients are registered in the clients name.
