Web Hosting

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I buy a domain name, but not buy web hosting?

Yes, you do not have to buy the web hosting when you buy a domain name.

Do I own the domain name?


Can I transfer (IN/OUT) the domain at any time?


Do I get a certificate of ownership for the domain I purchase?

Nominet issued certificates as confirmation of the contract that exists between Nominet and the registrant until August 2003. If you have a paper certificate, this remains valid until the expiry date shown on the certificate. Paper certificates and Reply Forms have been replaced by an online system called Registrants Online. Domain names are being transferred to the online system when they are next renewed.

How do I renew a domain?

We will contact customers via email around 30 days before the domain is due for renewal. You can then decide whether to renew the domain name or not which can easily be done via your Client Control Panel. For this reason, we always ask customers to ensure that their email address is valid, working and up-to-date, to ensure they get such messages. If we do not here from you, we will send you another reminder at around 14 days, 7 days and 1 day before the domain is due for renewal. Please note: If we don't here from you by the day of renewal, your domain may be cancelled.

Can I sell the domain to somebody else?
