What is a domain name?

A domain name is simply a uniquely identifiable address which people refer to in order to access someone’s website. When a user types in this address into an internet browser, it finds the IP address that it relates to and then loads the website from there.

Why do I need one?

In order to have a website, or an email address you need a domain name as a point of addressing for the internet to work out where the email is being sent to. Click here for more information on this.

How much do they cost?

Domain name prices start from just £3.40 per year, including all applicable taxes. However depending on which type of domain i.e. .co.uk/.com etc you get, the prices can vary. You can order one right now from this site – simply search for one in the box to the right of this text.

As you can see from this table, our renewal prices are the same as our registration prices. Some companies charge more for this, we do not. It should also be noted that all .com/.org domain name transfers include an additional one year registration (except for the .uk domains which only cost £1 for the transfer).

Can I transfer my existing domain name to you?

Yes. It is really easy to transfer a domain name to us. The prices are listed in the table above and the steps involved in transferring a domain name to us can be located by clicking here.

Is the domain name that I want available?

You can use the domain availability checker to the right hand side of this page to see if the domain name that you want is currently available.

Who owns the domain name that I register?

This is a commonly asked question. If you register the domain name it is registered in your name and you own it and have all the rights to it.
