Does your website have its own domain address – one that reflects the name and/or nature of your business – or do you use a free hosting address? When you give clients your contact details, do you give them a Hotmail address or an email address that relates to your domain?
A dedicated website domain such as www.example.co.uk looks far more professional than an address like www.example.freehosting.co.uk. Clients are also more likely to trust that yours is an established business if you have an email address such as firstname.lastname@example.org rather than email@example.com.
Get your Domain Name
There is a popular misconception that registering your own domain is either complicated or expensive. In fact, moving to firstname.lastname@example.org and www.example.co.uk should cost you only around £10 (payable every two years), and will take no more than 30 minutes of your time to set up. The biggest problem is usually that your preferred choice of domain name is already in use by someone else – a problem that will only get worse the longer you put it off.
