Schools do a LOT of communicating. Make it easier to get the word out by reserving your very own unique school domain name! It’s memorable, builds credibility and best of all it can be as private as you want. Your domain name gives you the exclusive right to use your URL and extension for all data you exchange over the internet.
There are many great reasons for owning your own domain. For schools, it may seem unprofessional to access your online resources by logging into a third party address. Here are some other reasons: Domains are valuable. Schools sometimes have similar names, so the competition for a simple domain and extension can be fierce. “MLKschool.com” for example is currently worth almost $500.
You control how visible you are. You can’t be too careful in the school environment! Protect your photos, student work, records, forms or any other sensitive material from unauthorized use by locking it down with Your Domain Pick’s School domain name options.
