1. What does the price include?
Local country or origin fees, advice, research, e-mail consultancy, administrative matters, registration, setup of tags and ongoing maintenance. Your Domain(s) are hosted on 2 x powerful NameServers, (permanently connected Internet computers), which come with state of the art 24 hour back up, 365 day monitoring system which ensures excellent 99.9% uptime. On the rare occasion a fault occurs, this is guaranteed to be reported within 2 minutes which then prompts attention from trained engineers who usually resolve the problem in a few more minutes. All domains are priced per annum. Unlike many other registrars there are no hidden extras in our registration fees. We also welcome phone calls. Yes that's right if you prefer to talk to a real person rather than send email that's fine to. We also guarantee that our local renewal fees are cheaper than going direct to the country of origin to pay your renewal fees.

3. Should I be a DOT.COM or DOT.UK?

It depends upon your target markets, but as most companies will want at least 20 domains for effective Internet Marketing to the top 20 search engines, its best to get a mix which allows flexibility. Remember also different local endings e.g.. .UK can allow better search engine positioning on dedicated UK search engines.

4. Are your Domain Names Search Engine Compatible?

Yes, all our Domain names are search engine compatable but if you want to improve your chances of being listed on search engines then you should note the following.
Country Specific Search Engines may be set up to favour domain names with your country initials in. For instance if you wanted to be listed on a UK specific search engine then you are best to use these domain names, uk.ws, .co.uk, .org.uk, .ltd.uk, and plc.uk.
It is very important when attempting to be top of the search engine charts that you use domain names with your keywords in. We are experts at obtaining keyword domain names to suit specialist search engine projects. We can also design specialist web pages to maximise search engine positioning on top twenty engines including, Yahoo, AltaVista, etc. Please e-mail Domain Name Sales Support for further information.

5. Can I contact the official UK Naming Registrar Direct?
Yes, if you have the technology, lots of patience and the technical staff to support it. However the fee charged by the UK Registrars is charged at 80. No discounts are available when ordering direct. In most cases ordering direct is pointless because even if you have the technical expertise and resources the cost involved far exceeds the low cost of us doing it for you. To order direct you will need two computers permanently connected to the Internet and configured as name servers. You will also pay 80 every 2 years if you go directly to the UK registrar.

6. Are your servers secure?
Our servers are monitored 24 hours a day and on the rare occasion a fault occurs, this is guaranteed to be reported within 2 minutes. This leads to immediate attention from highly trained engineers.

7. What if I want to use my existing ISP?

You will need to contact us and your ISP, your ISP will probably charge you a set up fee to map to their server and ongoing maintenance fees. If you tell us at time of purchase there is no extra charge, yes its FREE. If you decide to move it later, we may charge an administration fee for handling your request. Currently we charge £10 to change Nameservers at a later date. Please note that we are able to provide a complete one-stop Internet solution.

8. What does a Cyber-Squatter do?
These are people or companies that buy DOMAIN NAMES in the hope of selling them on for an inflated price. These people often make large sums, having purchased famous names like mcdonalds.co.uk, win95.co.uk, virgin.com, 21stcenturyfox.com. Purchasing like this is risky business for legal reasons, but you can get some amazing bargains like www.windowfixers.co.uk, which has an immediate commercial interest to any company that deals in windows.
