Domain names are used to identify sites on the world wide web. Today, millions of domain names have been registered meaning many common names are already in use and cannot simply be taken by another user. However, to keep pace with the demand for domain names, more and more domain suffixes are being introduced, allowing for many more names to choose.
A domain name is simply a unique identifier for an internet web address. It is formed by a series of characters (maximum of 63) which may contain letters, numbers, and hyphens, but may not contain spaces or other punctuation marks, and is followed by a pre-defined suffix (a selection of suffixes exist). Each 'part' is separated by a 'dot'. You may not begin or end the domain name with a hythen.
Examples of acceptable domain names are:
Choosing a name
If you're buying a domain name for a business, you'll probably want to try to get your company name or a variation of it. You might also look for a domain name that describes the products or services you offer.

When a domain name is in use
You may be in the situation of requiring a particular domain name. If this is the case, and it has already been taken by another user, we may still be able to negotiate the transfer of the name to your control.
Click here to email us and request our help when a domain name is already in use. We can assist with negotiating transfers of domain names. We also have several domain names under our control for sale from UK £50, including one year's registration.
A few words on hosting
To access any web pages for the domain, you'll need a hosting provider. Each of our registrar affiliates include (for free) the ability to host at least a basic page as part of the deal, however, for greater flexibility for your web site we strongly recommend that you use our combined packages, which start at just £12 per annum. For this, please use the relevant link towards the bottom of this page (middle option).
Copyright and Trademarked Names
Before registering a domain name, you should ensure that the name you choose is not already in use. This is usually done by the registrar as a search when you request the domain name. Additionally, you should be aware that if you register an existing trademarked or copyright name, you may be approached by the legal owner of the name and asked to relinquish ownership.
