Want your own website domain?

Traders- Hints & Tips

Want a website without the hassle? We can provide a domain name and link directly to your page on Pedddle for you – and you can get on with making!

Looking to develop your business further and want to get a website without the worry or hassle of technology? The next step before getting your own website is to get a domain name, so that you are ready when the time is right!

Getting your own website domain

There could be many reasons for not getting a website, from not feeling able to create one yourself, to not yet finding the time or funds to do so. However, when you are running a lifestyle business as a second income it isn’t wise to spend thousands of pounds on a website that you often have to keep up to date, work on SEO (search engine optimisation) and pay for server fees.

One common error many people make is that when they get a website they automatically think they will get traffic to their site. This is not the case – it takes a lot of work to be seen online, fighting against many other bigger companies. However, that said, if your business continues to grow as you wish and you want to then have a separate site, your domain is portable and you can just direct it to a separate site when you wish. Our developers can arrange this for you both at the beginning and at point of change or upgrade.

We can provide you with a domain name (www.) of your choice* and link it directly to your page on our Pedddle site. We can support you and ensure that it is working 99% of the time. Your Pedddle page hosts images of your work, a bio about you, a link to an Etsy, Folksy or And So ToS hop featured items, a contact form and also a list of markets you will attend. An example of this is one of our traders who has her own domain – www.bettyredbutton.co.uk – and if you click this link you can see it links directly to Betty’s page on Pedddle.

For a one-off £35 set up fee (which includes a ‘.co.uk’ domain name), it could be the perfect answer to increasing your presence online and accessing all the benefits Pedddle has to offer.  Be mindful that the annual cost of your domain name is not included. Obviously to do this, you also do have to keep up an active membership up with Pedddle.
