What are the benefits of your own domain name?

Send personalised, professional email

Be professional - send emails from your business name e.g. yourbusiness@yourwebsite.co.uk. They look sleek and will be taken more seriously than emails from a generic Yahoo or Gmail account.

Protect your name

Buying a domain that relates to your business stops other people getting their hands on them and benefiting from your great idea. It also gives you some copyright and trademark protection.

Rank higher on Google

Having a unique domain will help increase your ranking on search engines.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a domain name?

A domain name is the name of your website or your website address for example www.YourBusiness.co.uk. It's the place where users will find you on the Internet and it's unique to you or your business. Each domain name is made up of two parts the name you choose 'YourBusiness' and the second part is the extension 'co.uk'.

Why do I need a domain?

Your domain name is your unique identity. Domain names are used by businesses and individuals who plan on having an online presence. If you want to have a website or even a business email address, you need to have a domain name. This offers you the perfect stepping stone to start promoting yourself online and also protects you if you have a registered business and want to avoid anyone buying your matching domain.

Who can register a domain name?

Everybody who wants a unique online brand... Buying a domain that relates to your business stops other people getting their hands on them and benefiting from your great idea. It also gives you some copyright and trademark protection.

Can I buy multiple domain names?

Yes, you can! It’s possible to purchase multiple domains with different extensions for the same business name. As an example, we own chiphosting.uk and we forward it to our primary domain name chiphosting.co.uk.

Buying different versions of your domain name can help protect your brand and eliminate the chances of anyone else buying the domain if it is available. You also have an increased chance of gaining more website visitors by redirecting all your domains to one website, so potential customers can reach your site regardless of which extension they use.

How do I search for a domain name?

You can check the availability of a domain name by using the search function displayed on this page or on our Homepage. Simply enter your ideal name and you’ll be given a list of relevant options for you to purchase.

What is an extension?

An extension is the last part or ending of a domain name. They are often referred to as TLDs (Top-Level Domains), the domain root or suffix. Some popular TLDs include .com, .co.uk, .net, .org. There are many categories of extensions such as ccTLDs and new gTLDs..

What is the difference between ccTLDs and gTLDs

ccTLDs are country code specific so they represent a particular country e.g. .co.uk for UK and .ie for Ireland. New gTLDs are often more practical and easy to remember e.g. .club, .events, .shop, .wedding, .digital etc. Some businesses and brands register their domain name in a number of extensions to ensure they are fully protected.

What is DNS?

The Domain Name System (DNS) is like a directory for all websites on the Internet. It converts text-based domain names into a set of numbers known as Internet Protocol (IP addresses). By converting text to numbers, machines are able to locate websites based on their IP address and users can continue to find websites via domain names.

Are there any restrictions?

Just a few. Some domains have registration restrictions, meaning they can only be used for a specific purpose or by specific organisations/companies in a specific country or region. For example, .job can only be used for company with job listings, while .eu can only be used by registrants who are located in a country in the European Union.
