A domain name is an address people use to visit your website. A custom domain helps give your website a professional look and improves its ranking on search engines, increasing traffic to your website.
When you first register your ClubSpark account, you'll notice the URL (the web address of that website) is ww.clubspark.lta.org.uk/mytennisclub
However, you can adopt your own custom domain, removing the ClubSpark URL
What are the benefits of switching?
- A memorable domain name
We know the long ClubSpark URL is not the most memorable. Your own custom domain will be more memorable for your members and players, which will increase the number of people visiting your website. Also, when you’re promoting your venue to more people in conversation or through marketing, a custom domain is much more likely to stick!
- Identity for your club
You want your club to stand out from the crowd. A custom domain will help you to do that and have your own identity online. It will also help to professionalise your club website.
- Improve your Search Engine Optimsation (SEO)
Search engines (i.e. Google and Yahoo) want to provide their customers with the best information from trustworthy sources. Custom domains help to improve trustworthiness.
How much does it cost?
The only cost to you is for standard hosting and management of your domain name (per website) for £99 + VAT per year. This includes SSL certification to ensure your data such as usernames, passwords and credit card information is protected.
