Advantages of Having Your Own Domain Name

What are the advantages of having your own domain name?

Having your own domain name will allow your business to portray a more professional image and offers you flexibility of hosting your website and email services with whoever you wish or even on your own server locally.

Some of the advantages:

  • Easier for people to find website (mysalon.com is easier to remember than myisp.com/mysalon)
  • Easier to remember email addresses (info@mysalon.com instead or mysalon@myisp.com)
  • Improves email deliverability eg. mysalon@hotmail.com looks less legitimate than info@mysalon.comClick here for more information.
  • Easier remote connection to your work computer(s)
  • More flexible (you can pick and choose with who you wish to host your website and email services or you can host them on your own server locally)
  • Gives a more professional image 
  • You can keep the name for years to come
  • Easier to get your site registered with search engines
  • Better position in some search engine listings

How can CFL help you?

CFL now offers email hosting through two main solutions; Google Apps and Local Mail Server with MDaemon. Even if you have your website already hosted with your domain but are still using hotmail or gmail etc for your email, CFL can help by giving you addresses linked to your domain to give a more professional look. For example admin@salon.co.nz looks a lot better than salonadmin@hotmail.com. CFL can also provide website hosting as well as website and logo design through our full time graphics and website designer.

Google Apps

Google Apps is a cloud-based productivity suite that helps you and your team connect and get work done from anywhere on any device. It includes Gmail (email service), Calendar, Drive (online storage), Docs (document sharing), Sheets (spread sheets) and Slides (presentations).

Once you have chosen and registered your domain name eg. mysalon.com CFL can help you connect it to Google Apps and get the initial configuration of email addresses etc done for you. CFL will only charge for professional fees but the Google Apps charges would be paid directly to Google. 

Local Mail Server (MDaemon)

CFL is a reseller and specialises in setup and configuration of MDaemon Messaging Email Server. In this case once you have chosen and registered your domain name eg. mysalon.com CFL can install and configure MDaemon on your own server and get the domain name connected to it. There are many addons for MDaemon such as SecurityPlus (antivirus and antispam protection), Outlook Connection (collaboration functions when used with Outlook email client), Webmail, ActiveSync (email, calendar, contacts sync with mobile devices), etc and CFL can help you choose from these based on your requirements.

If you feel that one of these options would be appropriate for your business please feel free to email sales@cfl.co.nz for more information.
