Depending on how many sites are being queried and how busy
they are, you could have a blank window for quite a few moments, -
please be patient.
Keep it Short
Although some domain names can be up to 63 characters, you have to keep in mind that people need to be able to remember it, and easily type it into their browser. Try to register the shortest name that your customers and visitors will associate with your Website. The general rule of thumb is to keep it under seven characters if possible. (Not including the suffix.)
There are many different extensions available right now. For most businesses,
a '.com' ("Dot-Com"), '.co.uk', '.org', '.net', or '.biz' suffix
is now quite conventional and expected. However, the new-ish site
type indicating extensions like '.tv' and '.mobi' may be good for your
intensions... like 'premier-cc.tv', and - whilst we don't actively sell
them - the range of country codes e.g. '.gb' & '.gs' could suit if for
instance they match your - or your companies initials. You can look
these up at IANA.
If there are no specific restrictions or compliance demands we may be able
to book - and host them for you.
Register Your Domain NOW
You must 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. Just get out there and register before you lose the opportunity to get the name you really want.
One May Not Be Enough
Sometimes it is a good idea to register several similar domain names, particularly if you own a trademark for a certain name. If you have "yourname.com", register "yourname.co.uk" so no one else takes it. You can register your full company name and a shorter, easier to remember version. Some people even register common misspellings of their company's name. You don't need a separate web page for each, several domains can point to the same website using domain name mappings.
Just a reminder: domain names can only use letters, numbers, and dashes. Spaces and symbols are not allowed. Also, domain names are not case sensitive.
Don't Shell Out Large Amounts of £££
Some companies still sell domain names for as much as £100. Ours start at
£3 per year!
And remember, if you think that you have found the right domain name, but you're not quite sure if it's the one... register it anyway before someone else does!
You can use the box at the top of this page to check if a domain name is available, or sign up/login to your
Genesis account page and select the domain name link, which can check one name with multiple suffixes at once.
What do I get with - Just a Domain Name ?
Cetainly, most of the 'goodies' come with our hosting
services. However, if you're not ready to implement your site(s)
right now - that doesn't mean they're just parked on the shelf.
When you buy a domain name from us - without hosting, you don't get
charged extra for web forwarding, nor email forwarding which can be
selective or 'catch-all', and YOU have control over the contents in the
who-is listings, whether to allow your details to be shown openly or not.
By default, initially - anyone accessing your 'site' will see a 'reserved'
page, but even without booking space with us, we give you the choice to
have a 'Business-Card' introductory web-page with your details and a description of
your services or notes - which you can set-up very easily with 'Home-page-Creator' (You choose a template, fill in the details you
want people to see - and press a button to publish it. It's that simple.)
If you bought a good name for the investment... You may prefer to have a
'For-Sale' notice - with or without a price tag.
Mostly, additional names - are to guide potential customers who key-in
variations of your real site's name or email addresses to the right place
- and this it does very effectively, very simply and very
