1StopHosting's amazing value domain names
Buy your domain name in confidence with our low prices and free features. Our
domain registration system is highly automated so we register your domain names
quickly any time of the day or night with no fuss. Even if you have a brainwave
3am! And then relax knowing that nobody can take your name. Please check the
spelling of your domain as once registered cannot be changed so double check
your the spelling. It's theoretically possible that somebody could register the
same name at the same time but this is very unlikely. You will get an email when
the registration has been confirmed.
Order your Domain NOW Do not leave it till later. I have lost several good domains because I was not ready at the time and left it to my regret. Register and hold the domain until you are ready to use it and prevent it being taken by others. Initially, your domain is automatically set up with an under construction page which will be replaced with your new website.
Our fees are low all the time and not just special offers!
Enter the domain you would like in the box under "Domain Search". Leave "all" in the next box, click "Go" and our Domain Availability Checker will show the available domains see below.
Simply tick the domain(s) you are considering then click "Add Domains to Basket" button below to save these domains to your basket. You are not committing yourself here, they can be deleted later. If you do not like any of these domains type a different name in the "Search for other Domain Names" box, then click the search button. (note: this will cancel any domains ticked). You can add additional domains by clicking "Domain Names" on the Your Basket page which will take you back to the Domain Availability Checker. You can select many variations as you wish then pick the best ones to actually register by deleting the unwanted at the shopping basket stage. Nothing is final until you confirm payment.

Tips on choosing a domain name
Keep it short, keep it simple
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.
co.uk, com, eu, net, org...?
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, .eu 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. There is no need to create umpteen sites, just point them to your main site.
Consider common typos
If you have a domain name that can easily by pluralised or miss-spelled consider registering those as well to stop traffic going elsewhere. It is simple to point them to your main site.
Don't shell out large amounts of money
Some companies still sell domain names for as much as £100 per year. Make sure you are getting a good deal!
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. This way you can reserve the name you want making sure that no one else can take it! Don't leave it for later as it may not be available when you require it. Once you are ready you can add hosting and start building your site or we can do this for your. However I would suggest that you take a small hosting package and place a holding announcing your presence and revisit soon. Simply search for your domain name and register it yourself. Simple!
How long will it take for my new domain name to become active?
Domains are registered automatically as soon as you order them and can be active within hours, however it can take between 24 and 72 hours for a domain name to become visible on the Internet as each DNS (Domain Name Server) updates its database of domain names. If you order hosting at the same time a temporary hosting is setup so that you can start using our online WebBuilder.
Can I buy a domain name, but not buy web hosting?
Yes, you do not have to buy the web hosting when you buy a domain name. When you are ready to start you always add web hosting later. However it makes sense to announce to the world your presence by having a small hosting package to host a holding page or a simple website to start with.
Do I own the domain name?
Yes - so long as you keep renewing the lease. The domain is registered with the name you fill in on 1StopHosting's registration page.
Can I transfer the domain at any time?
Yes, you can, and we provide a control panel so that you can make these changes yourself at any time and that's all included in the price.
Do I get a certificate of ownership for the domain I purchase?
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.
