Domain Names And Website Hosting

All About Domain Names

What is a domain name?

A domain name is the address of your website. Typically, it will be your brand or company name followed by .com or .co.uk (for example, our domain name is somethingdigital.co.uk). Increasingly though - as domain names must be unique and many millions have already been registered - organisations are having to become more creative in the choice of their domain names.

Which domain name should I use?

This depends very much on your particular circumstances, but generally speaking, domain names should be as simple and short as possible. We often help our clients choose their domain name, and we can usually offer some new ideas if your most obvious choices are unavailable.

How do I get one?

Simple! You just register your domain with the relevant naming authority, or a 3rd party registrar can do this for you (usually at a much reduced cost). Registration fees vary depending on the type of domain, but they're usually less than 20/year for the most popular types. If you prefer, we can arrange all this for you.

How do I keep my domain registered?

If you've registered your domain yourself, you will be notified by your registrar a few weeks before your renewal date. You must pay the renewal fee for as long as you wish to keep the domain registered. If the registration lapses, your domain will become available for anyone else to register. If we register your domain for you, we'll automatically keep it renewed so that you don't have to worry about it.

Website Hosting You Can Forget About

What is web hosting?

Website hosting is the service that makes your website available on the internet. Although it is possible to host a website on your own computer, almost no-one ever does this because it is far simpler, more reliable and cost-effective to use a specialist hosting service. We provide professional hosting services suitable for all sizes and types of website.

Why use our service?

Not only do we provide all the webspace, bandwidth, scalability and reliability you need, but we also provide a completely managed service for you. There's no complicated login interface for you to learn to deal with - you simply pick up the phone and ask us to sort out whatever you need. This is what most of our clients prefer - and the best bit? The low, low price!

What about email?

Email services are provided as part of all our hosting packages if required. You can use any email address on your domain, e.g. info@xyz.com, sales@xyz.com or bill.bloggs@xyz.com. And we set it all up for you as part of the managed service.

What about data backup?

All our hosting packages include full backup services as required. You don't need to worry about losing your website data - just relax knowing we've got it all sorted for you.
