Why is a domain name so important for my website?

The Domain Name (or URL) is the address of your Website on the WorldWideWeb - www.yourdomain.com (or .co.uk). This is where your patients will find your website with information about you. This web presence will give you an advantage over competitors who don't have a website.


If I have more than one domain name, can they all be diverted to the same website?

Yes, that can be done. For example, if you have 3 domain name (A, B, C) and would like to redirect to A only then whenever people go to B or C they will be forward to A.

But there will be free of charge or a small fee for each domain name redirecting depends on which company provides your domain name.
