Once you have completed the on-line
registration form we register the domain
name on your behalf with the appropriate
body. Included in this process three named
contacts must be given, for billing, administration
and technical purposes. To make the whole
process trouble free we take on these roles
free of charge.
As part of the procedure your domain name
is registered by either Nominet, the British
registration body, or the Internic, the
U.S registration organisation administered
by Network Solutions Inc on their databases.
Once recorded we hold the name on our servers,
again at no cost. The details are then propagated
around the Internet so that it can be found
by anyone sending email to you or looking
for your web site.
To keep your domain 'live' the registration
bodies charge you, though us, an annual
The logical way to do this is every year.
Unfortunately logic does not apply here.
Network Solutions invoices its clients after
two years and then every subsequent year.
Nominet on the other hand bills every two
years for two years fees in advance.
To simplify matters we spread the costs
over a regular period. Following the initial
fee for the domain the only payment you
will be asked to make is £19 plus VAT**
per year to cover the registration fees
and administration charges. We will send
you the first of these invoices twelve months
following the date of registration.
You can be billed independently by Nominet
for the registration fees. However, they
will charge you every two years for two
years fees in advance, at £40 plus VAT (£47
inc VAT) per year, unless you are a member
of the organisation. Membership is open
to anyone at a cost of £500 plus VAT (£587.50
Network Solutions will also bill you independently
if you chose. They do not levy additional
costs but the process can be complicated.
Should you wish to handle your own annual
fees and take on the roles of administration
and technical contacts yourself please email
us for details.
