Obtaining a Domain Name for Yourself
Some coaches would prefer to use their own domain name, for example www.johnsmith.co.uk rather than use a sub-domain such as www.socialtennis.com/johnsmith
The advantage of using a sub-domain with SocialTennis.com is that your website can be set up instantaneously and there is no charge for hosting. However you may decide it woudl be more professional and may be advantageous, for you to have your own domain name.
To set your own domain name simply register with one of the many domain registrars and register your chosen name e.g. www.johnsmith.co.uk. You can then go into its control panel and ‘point’ to www.socialtennis.com/johnsmith. Your SocialTennis.com Website or Online Notice Board will be found instantaneously by anyone typing www.johnsmith.co.uk into their browser.
To see an example please visit www.doretotley.co.uk
