A domain name allows you to acquire a distinct identifier that names your business or organisation and provides Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) that point to your specific web pages. Google, a popular search engine, includes domains in their many product offerings that support those who do business on the Internet. Offered at £6 a year, you can purchase a name and begin creating your website and/or take advantage of the various tools, such as Google Apps.
