Domain Name Registration

Your identity on the world wide web is important: often, people will want to find out information about your products or services and will guess your domain name - some companies have, after all, made a business out of speculatively registering domain names - so it's important that you consider registering a domain name that is reasonably intuitive.

After all, which of the following is more intuitive for a company called Morris Associates:

http://www.morris-associates.co.uk or

http://s106352978.websitehome.co.uk/homepages/Morris_Associates?

For that matter, which one will be easier to remember or to put on a business card?

Another benefit of registering your own domain is that if you decide to change your Internet Service Provider, you don't need to advise all your contacts of the new e-mail and web site addresses and change them on all your stationery - they remain the same.

We can register your domain name with a .co.uk, .ltd.uk, .plc.uk, .org.uk for 15 and a .com, .net, .org, .info or .biz suffix for 25, which includes registration, set up and the first two years' fees (.com, etc. renewals are 25).

Check if your preferred domain name is available (.uk domains):

http://www.  

Fill this in to check a .com, .net, .biz or .info domain name:

http://www. 

Enter up to 67 characters: A-Z, 0-9, or dashes.

Fill this in to check a .org domain name:

http://www. 

Our advice would be to register your preferred domain name with us now even if you're not yet ready to have a web site: generally, it's a case of first come, first served.

Be careful about the domain name you choose: there have been a few "mistakes" like Power Genitalia instead of Powergen Italia and Expert Sex Change instead of Experts Exchange.

Virtual Domains

If you'd prefer not to 'take the plunge' on a domain name yet, we can still set you up with a virtual domain of http://<yourname>.wduk.net for your web site's URL for 10 per annum.
