Domain Names

Domain Names Available

It's very easy to purchase your own domain name these days. It's also very cheap! Have you ever considered buying a domain for your business or hobby, or your own name? You could even buy a domain and hosting as a gift for someone.

.co.uk, .me.uk, .org.uk - FREE with any hosting £ 9.99 per 2 years
.com, .net, .org, .info, .name, .biz £ 9.99 per year (max 10y)

Other domain names are available but vary in price quite considerably. Please contact us for a price.

How to choose your domain name

Keep it it as short as possible, although 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)

Dot What?

There are many different extensions available right now. For businesses, we recommend a .com, .co.uk or .biz suffix. You can use any extension you like. The .UK domains are regarded by search engines as containing information most relevant to UK residents only. Whilst your site will appear in search results around the world, they will generally not score as well. Use an extension other than .UK if you would like your site to be more easily seen by internet users around the world.

Register Your Domain NOW

You must register as soon as possible, or risk getting stuck with "the-domain-name-that-no-one-wanted.com". You don't have to have a Webmaster, an ecommerce department or a web design consultant... you don't even need a web page. Just register it before you lose the opportunity to get the name you really want.

One May Not Be Enough

Sometimes it's 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 as several domain names can point to the same website using "Domain Name Mappings".

Character Types

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 Cash

Some companies still sell domain name registrations for as much as £100 each!

At Kimpton Web Hosting you pay just £9.99 for 1 - 2 years domain name registration. .UK domain names are free when purchased with any hosting package. Remember, if you think that you've found the right domain name, but you're not quite sure if it's the one... register it anyway before someone else does!
