Why should I have my own website for my holiday
An exclusive site makes a reliable impression and shows that you are serious about rentals. It will convince your guests.
You reach more people in more countries in their own language. So you score more hits.
An exclusive website provides all the necessary information but if people still have questions, then you can answer them quickly.
Your website is available 24/7 and is always up to date.
On search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo, your website will score more hits.
For quick questions about your holiday home, you can refer people to your web address. Then your house will get seen and reviewed again and again.
Add links to your website on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and other social media.
Your own website has far more room for big pictures and more information than a standard listing does.

Do I need a domain name or website address before I start?
Akomgo.com will arrange this for you. Request the name you want for your website. We will verify that this name is available and if so, then it will be your website’s name and address (URL).
TIP: It’s best to make a unique and distinctive website name (URL) that suits your own holiday home. For example: www.yourhousename-yourvillagename.com
Why is an private domain name better than a free domain name?
The free domain name is a subdomain of..... rent. app.com. For visitors this is less easy to remember than a unique name.
A free URL is cheap, but there are also disadvantages. For Google and other search engines, the URL is part of a large group because you share the address with all those other holiday homes that also use a free address.
In order to be found better in the search engines, we recommend that you create your own URL. The costs for your own url can be found on our site.
To make optimal use of this, we recommend that you keep it as short as possible, indicating the location name and, if possible, the type of accommodation.
In this way the search engines know how to find your website perfectly with just the name.
Can I use my own existing domain name?
Certainly! If you would like to use your own domain name for your holiday home, please get in touch (contact form) and we will look after the integration.
Do I have to translate my texts myself?
No! After you fill out all the details of your holiday home, Akomgo.com will look after the translations using specially written software for 10 languages.
How do I respond to queries from guests?
You won’t find it a problem with our bookings system.

All you need do is fill out the details of your guests and the booking.
