Your domain is your web address (i.e., www.yoursite.com).
iCandy does not provide Domain Registration services but we would be happy to walk you through the process to assist you with obtaining your domain. By purchasing your own domain for yourself you are ensuring that you are the registered owner of the domain and that you will have full access to all contacts pertaining to your domain. MAJOR problems can arise from clients who have allowed someone else to purchase their domain for them.
iCandy will assist you in the domain registration process by:
- making suggestions for choosing a domain name (i.e., choosing between .com vs .ca, tips for making your domain easier for visitors to remember, suggestions on choosing a domain that will result in better SEO for your site, and more!)
- walking you through the entire registration process.
- providing tips to help you get the Domain name you just HAVE to HAVE!
A Note of Caution: Domain Name Front Running is the practice of stealing someone’s domain name search queries and registering the domain name before the original person can register it. iCandy no longer searches the availability of a domain until you are ready to make the purchase.
iCandy recommends Go Daddy for domain registrations.
