          Domains

          The first step to setting up an online business is securing the right domain name for your business.

          Choose a domain with a good keyword, so people can find and remember you, and choose the best domain extension for your business.

          Once you know what domain your business needs, it’s quick and easy to register it with the right domain provider.


          Before you start

          Our prices include all administrative and registry fees for the number of years you are registered with us. Furthermore, every domain name registered with us comes with:

          Even if you don’t have a website, you can still reserve as many domains as you’d like – however there are certain rules and regulations for some domain name types.

          There are no ongoing fees during the registration period – once you have registered your domain name, it is yours providing you pay the renewal every period it is due – generally each year.

          The domain name comes as is. If you require a website or email addresses for your domain, you will need to purchase a cloud hosting plan.

          Although there are no limits to how many domain names you can register, you should remember that it is your responsibility to make sure that you do not infringe the rights of any other company or individual. 

          If you register a brand name or company name which belongs to another company as a domain name, we reserve the right to cancel the registration.
