REGISTER GLOBAL DOMAIN NAMES

.com, .net, .info, .mobi or .org

Global Domain Names There is a wide variety of different Global domain name extensions available, each intended for a particular type of use.

When choosing a global domain for use with your website, brand or identity it is important to register one that best suits your goals, needs or general audience. For example, if your main audience is mobile based it may be of more interest to register a .mobi domain because it instantly tells your visitors it is a mobile based or orientated site, company or business.

In some cases, particularly in larger orginisations, it can be beneficial to register multiple extensions in order to protect your brand or identity in the Global market.
