Using a domain name associated to your business will help you look more professional. But you don’t have to restrict yourself to just one domain name – you can use as many as you like. You can expand and protect your brand, by having a range of similar domain names, all displaying the same content. You can expand your brand by registering one of our New Generic Top Level Domain extensions, which can be used to grow your business. This doesn’t mean you need to create an additional website though. If you register an additional domain name then it is very easy to point it (forward it) to your existing website.

This means you can benefit by having a new & exciting domain name, without the hassle of creating a secondary website. Here’s how to set up web forwarding for any additional domain names you register:

Step 1 – Log Into your Control Panel

You can access your Easyspace control panel by visiting http://controlpanel.easyspace.com.
