How to Claim and Set up new domains

If you’re comfortable with purchasing domains from someone like godaddy.com or 1and1.co.uk, you can simply buy a new domain and point it using a 301 redirect to your existing website. Alternatively, if you want to move your site to a new domain you need to make sure you follow best practice for changing your domain without creating duplicate content issues.

Marketing

While these new domains might seem like a no-brainer, you will need to consider that unless you’re selling to a very tech-savvy audience, it’s unlikely that your potential customers will be familiar with the new batch of domains just released.

When written on a business card or on the side of a van, wokingham.plumbing is unlikely to be recognised as a website so easily as wokinghamplumbers.com would. You might also find yourself explaining your new domain to people in order to convince them that you’re not making a mistake “wokingham.plumbing-dot-what?” etc…

You could, of course, turn this into a news story if your local press is particularly quiet that week…
