Through a series of engaging workshops, Verisign, the company behind .com, and web host 1&1 UK, covered various aspects of establishing an online presence – from the how to choose a domain name to creating and promoting your website.

There are many things to consider when launching a website, but choosing a domain name for your business is the first important hurdle and not one to be taken lightly.
