Domain Name Purchase

It is very important that your website has the right name so that your customers, and potential customers, can find you easily. A good choice of name can greatly increase your success as an online presence.

As well as offering advice on the name, we can also purchase your desired name for you. Domain names are no longer limited to just ‘.com’ or ‘.co.uk’. There is now a huge choice of domain name suffixes, designed to say something about your website before the visitor has even seen the content.

Customers wishing to order a domain name with a suffix not listed above can contact us to check for availability. All domain names purchases are subject to availability.

Domain Name Conditions

Domain names must only contain letters, numbers and hyphens and cannot exceed 63 characters in length.

You can choose whatever domain name you wish, subject to availability, however try to make the domain name easy to remember. Although a domain name may be available, avoid domain names that could misrepresent. Choose a name that you can show you have a valid right to use.

Domain name registration usually lasts for 2 years and the registration costs will need to be met bi-annually, although we can arrange for you to secure the name for longer for an increased fee.

To protect your brand image, it is possible to have more than one domain name, or more usually more than one domain suffix, point to the same website.
