How do I select a good generic domain name?
1 - Think of four phrases your targeted business audience will be using on word searches on the search engines to find your business or service (e.g. heating contractor or electrical contracts, plumber or electrician).
2 - Now attach the town, cities or counties you wish to be found in (e.g. heating contractor London, or electrical contracts Manchester, plumber Norfolk, electricians Edinburgh).
3 - Now use the easy search tool on the site to see if the domains are available (search engines do not recognise common words e.g. and, my, in, the etc we recommend use hyphens). If you are unable to find a generic domain name available to suit your area or services contact our easy advisors on 0800 058 8250 and we will help.
4 - If you've found a good generic domain name simply contact Easy Domains and we will take care of the rest. Be quick to make sure nobody else purchases the domain before you.
Why purchase my company domain or Web site address?

Our recommendation is easy. Easy Domains recommend you purchase your company name in all suffixes available to you (e.g. .com, .co.uk, .net), and point/redirect to your business website.
