Domain Registration
#1
Hopefully someone can help! Im looking to register a domain name but chances are it wont actually be attached to a website for about 6 months or so. Can someone point me towards a reputable site that arent going to shaft me in fee's. Im hoping to register it for a minimum of a year but a good two year deal would be better. Also the option of adding hosting to it would be nice as long as it wont cost an arm and a leg.

Any suggestions welcomed!

This site is hosted, and domain provided by, HeartInternet.  They can just provide the domain but also offer free hosting (although a bit limited, obviously) and reasonable priced premium packages.

I have registered and hosted many sites:

1&1 Internet for your domains - dirt cheap and very reliable company

Catalyst2.com for all your hosting needs - NEVER had my site go down, and any query you have is answered literally in minutes and they also now have live chatroom advisor thingamee to connect to a techie to help you.

I must have about 10 sites/domains using the above combination.

My business relies fully in the internet 24/7, and the above has never failed me  -and theyre cheap.

I must be sitting on another 10 domains unhosted, much what you wish to do - once you are ready, you simply login to 1&1 and you have full control of your domain.

Thanks fellas, just had a look 1&1 look good but they dont register .co.uk domains (that I can see anyway) which is a shame but I may use them to reserve the .com version as well. How greedy!

<edit>Just woken up to reality and typed in 1&1.co.uk and found they do .co.uk domains! Sorry!</edit>

Not sure how it works, but the .co.uk's are oddly free, you just need to pay a service fee I think......

Not done it for a long time, but Im logging in every now and again for domain management.

I paid £2.79 for 2 years for .co.uk at HeartInternet.

Yeah just registered .co.uk and .com for £8 for a year. £2.49 for the .co.uk cant complain at that, as I say its only to sit on them for now. Thanks for the recommendation!  Smile

The .co.uk is for 2 years automatically, .com's are a year.

So now you've registered them, care to share the names? (assuming its an exciting new venture to make you rich?) - Or failing that some pretty cool free p0rn site..... 8)

Theres a tremendous amount of us geeks on here, all with varying internet know-how if you need any help.

Good name, great for search engines as the domain contains the fundamental business type.

Good luck with it.
