Frequently asked questions about domaincheck

  • How important is it that I use the 1&1 domain check?

    The domain name for a website is essentially the first impression or image that a potential visitor to your site is greeted with, therefore finding the right domain name for your website is vitally important to the success of your site. Thankfully, 1&1 is here to help you check your domain name once you have come up with a good idea. The best domain names are those that define what your site is and what it does. You can use the 1&1 checker to find the right name to ensure that it is easy for potential visitors or customers to locate you. For example, if your site was one that sold ballet shoes, you would want your domain name to clearly indicate this, guaranteeing that those searching for ballet shoes would find and visit your site. If your domain name is too vague or complex, potential customers may well pass right over your site believing it to be irrelevant to their search. In addition to this, as the world wide web grows bigger year after year, you want to ensure that your site can be found amongst all the others that are competing for attention. 1&1 can check your domain to see if it has already been taken and which names are still available for you to register. Finding the right domain name should be your first step when constructing your site, as in many ways it is the most important one. Let 1&1 help you get it right.

  • How can 1&1 help me if my desired domain name is taken?

    If you are having trouble choosing your perfect domain name, 1&1 is here to help. There are a multitude of options available to you - any problems can be worked around, leading to a fantastic domain name for your site. The first thing you can do is think about changing the TLD. This is the part of the URL at the end: for example .com, .net, .org. So if your desired domain name was balletshoes.com and you find that this is already taken, you can try balletshoes.org or balletshoes.net. The 1&1 domain check will automatically generate your desired domain name with new TLDs if your first choice is already taken. If these are also not available, or you have your heart set on one particular TLD, then you can think about adapting your original domain name. Having to rethink your domain name shouldn’t be seen as a problem and, in fact, it may well lead to a spark of inspiration that helps your chosen domain name to really stand out.
