How to use your own domain name
Domain name hosting
This is a free service provided by LayerSpace and will make your website indistinguishable from a site using a custom hosting solution . This provides better SEO (search engine optimisation) because your website pages can be read more fully by Google, Yahoo and the others. You also get a full POP3/IMAP email account with webmail, virus scanning and 100mb of storage, as well as 5 forwarder email addresses.
Good search engine optimisation
Fully hosted website
POP3/IMAP email account
Slightly more setup involved (though still quite easy!)
or Web forwardingThis is the simplest way to use a domain name and redirects anyone who types your domain name into a browser to your LayerSpace website.
If you use 'framing' or 'cloaking' your domain name will remain in the browser address bar.
Most domain name sellers (or registrars) will provide this facility although some charge a fee.
Easy to set up and change
Not as search engine friendly as the hosting solution.
