Buying domain names
There are many Registrars to choose from and they will all offer a variety of included and add-on services for your domain. Some of the most useful to have are email forwarding, web forwarding and full DNS control including nameservers.
You will need to consider which of these are important and also decide who will host your website.
Once you have decided which Registrar to use, simply enter your chosen domain name into the search box to check availability. The system will tell you whether the name is available and you can then proceed to purchase online. You can purchase many domain names at the same time and can occasionally receive a small discount on the price for doing this. Domain name registration fees for .uk names are for a period of 2 years.
After a short period of 24-48 hours your domain becomes live and Nominet will show you as the new owner.
