I'm looking to have a website (well just a homepage really) for my business but I have no idea how to go about ensuring that i get the web address that I want. I have no idea whether my questions are even valid so laugh away and then help me if you can
1) I've typed in the address I want and it doesn't exist so presumably it's available but do I have to find out whether someone owns it? if so how do I find out who?
2) How much is it likely to cost. Is there a one off charge, an annual fee or a monthly rate? or is that all to do with hosting?
