Over the next few months we'll be letting you know of some of the other domain name endings that are available and that may be useful to help you promote your presence online - it's not only about country-specific domain endings!
This month, we be introducing you to the .SHOP domain.
Online shopping has revolutionised our lives. Around 30% of all retail shopping is now carried out via the Internet and this is only going to increase in the future. So having an online shopping presence is vital.
Whether you are starting a new business, or expanding an existing one, and whether you are a large enterprise or a team of one, having the right domain name is critical to your success.
A .SHOP domain is short, memorable and universally understood in languages around the world. It also makes it easy for everyone everywhere to know you are open for business 24x7.
Using a .SHOP domain gives your shop an intuitive address and makes it easier for your customers to remember you and to find you and your products.
And although .SHOP is normally used to promote e-commerce sites, it can also benefit businesses that don’t conventionally sell products online, and are looking to expand into the market. For example, by adding a .SHOP web page to a current website, businesses like restaurants, museums, etc can develop an online storefront directly linked to a main pages of their existing sites.
You can use a SHOP domain in the same way as any other domain. You can add it to a WordPress website using WooCommerce shopping plugins, or we can link the domain to an external host such as Wix, Weebly, Spanglefish and Squarespace, and we will still provide you with a related email service.
Please contact us if you are interested in using a .SHOP domain to help expand your web presence. We can discuss your needs with your and help you perform a search to see if your preferred .SHOP domain name is available.
Pricing starts at £40 + VAT per annum for a Basicali service for basic hosting. A .SHOP domain with Linux & WordPress hosting starts at £82 + VAT per annum.
