To find your site people need to be able to remember your address and easily type it into their browser. Aim to register the shortest name that your customers and visitors will associate with your website.
It is a good idea to register several similar domain names, particularly if you own a trademark for a certain name. If possible register the .co.uk, .com and .net. These are the most popular domain names and by registering all of them you can help to prevent cyber squatters and losing traffic.
If you have a domain name that can easily by pluralised or miss-spelled consider registering those as well to stop traffic going elsewhere.
Some companies still sell domain names for as much as £100 per year. Our domain prices apply to both new registrations and renewals.
You should register as soon as possible, or risk getting stuck with "the-domain-name-that-no-one-wanted.net". You do not have to have a Webmaster or an ecommerce department or a web design consultant... you don't even need a web page. Simply search for your domain name and register it yourself. Simple!
Domains are registered as soon as you order them, however it can take between 24 and 72 hours for a domain name to become visible on the Internet as each DNS updates its database of domain names.
Yes, you do not have to buy the web hosting when you buy a domain name. If you decide to add web hosting in the future you can easily upgrade with one of our feature rich hosting packages.
Yes - unlike some companies we always register the domain in your name or in your customer's name if you are working on someone's behalf.
Yes you can, and we provide a control panel as standard so that you can make these changes yourself at any time. Unlike some companies, we don't charge a fee to release your domain.
Please note that in order to transfer an ICANN domain between registrars, the domain must be at least 60-days old. This is a registry restriction, not a regulation instituted by us or other registrars.
If the domain was previously transferred to Smokey Planet, the transfer must have completed more than 60-days prior.
In the past Nominet issued certificates as confirmation of the contract that exists between Nominet and the registrant and this continued until August 2003. Paper certificates and reply Forms have now been replaced by an online system called Registrants Online.
Different domain extensions are managed through different registries and governed by different bodies, each with their own prices. In the UK Nominet are the registry responsible for managing extensions such as .co.uk, .me.uk and org.uk.
