Well, If you are a UK registered business then the correct or standard format should be to use a .co.uk domain name. However if you are wanting International business and prefer the idea of using a .com domain name, we would recommend that you register both and 301 redirect your .co.uk to your .com and build your website on the .com. This is something that we can assist with.
Yes it is very easy to renew domains with us and this process in most cases will be automatic too. Our prices rarely rise and we charge £8.99 for a .co.uk domain name and £10.99 for a .com and .net domain name.
Well if you are wanting a domain name purely to forward to say a Facebook page and to forward emails to an existing email address, then no you will not need any web hosting. If you wish to build a website though and have a dedicated email inbox with storage, then yes you will need web hosting also. Our web hosting starts at £3.49 per month or £34.99 when paying annually.
Yes, if you order a years hosting paid upfront with us, we will give you a .com, .net or .co.uk on us for the year. If you want a totally free no strings attached domain name then we can offer you either a .tk, .ml, .ga, .cf or .ga domain name totally free of charge. These do have some terms differences but are a great resource for a non-for-profit idea that you may have.
Yes our control panel is easy to use and also so are the cPanel and Plesk options for controlling your domain name.
If you order the basic hosting package then there are some limitations on your hosting size and the data bandwidth. If you are simply wanting to host a small website then this will never be an issue for you. If you have a commercial project that will be requiring some substantial space and bandwidth, then we can easily accommodate this. Our top packages offer UNLIMITED space and bandwidth
YES, If you purchase a years web hosting upfront you will get a free .co.uk or .com domain name for the year.
We are 100% Plesk nowadays as cPanel made the crazy mistake of charging $0.20 per user account monthly. Imagine you are a small company with several hundred cPanel accounts only used for mailbox forwarding and 301 domain redirects, that bill soon adds up. Plesk was always regarded as the not-so-attractive friend of cPanel for many years. In the past few years the revamp of the Plesk GUI means that it looks great as a control panel (and in our opinion is far more functional too).
We pre-install WordPress automatically when every account creation. So when you have selected your domain and hosting choices and paid, your account will be created automatically and the very latest version of WordPress pre-installed as standard. If for any reason you are not wanting to use WordPress and just want to upload your own HTML website (or use another CMS), then WordPress will easily go away again at the click of a button.
YES. You can either upload an existing website via FTP or build a new one. You can either do so using HTML or via a popular CMS such as WordPress
Our Servers are located in Greater Manchester, Torquay and Kent in the United Kingdom and are all now fitted with the latest Solid State technology, making connection to them rocket-fast for both you and your visitors
YES. You may have to switch off GPS location services on your device first, but yes then you will be able to access BBC, ITV, Channel 4 apps etc. when outside of the United Kingdom when you have a British VPN running.
YES. When using a VPN you are accessing the Internet via a securely encrypted tunnel and technically via our Internet service provider, and so anything that you download or look at is strictly your-eyes-only
It will decrease your speeds slightly, especially if far away from the server. If you are in say Perth in Australia accessing a UK TV via a VPN server located on the other side of the world, there will be some lag, however with most countries now having Internet speeds that are 5-10x faster than is needed for streaming TV apps, then this will not be an issue. The lag is around a 10% drop usually
YES. If you are accessing the internet via your home WIFI hub without a VPN connected then this is a potential. This risk is not as great as if you were in say Starbucks and on the same public WIFI network as a dozen over people, but it still is a risk. If you are accessing banking apps or other sensitive sites then it is always advised to use a VPN
YES. Our VPN will install on virtually all laptops, tablets, smart-phones and now even smart routers and smart TV sets. It is always advisable to install a VPN on as many of your devices as possible so that you can switch on and off as you please
YES. You may install your VPN account on your router. While some home routers do not have this capacity, we also sell VPN enabled routers that can plug into your existing hardware and be used as a VPN repeater. It is always a good move to install the VPN on your home router whenever possible as it puts the VPN at the source, so that all of you devices are sitting behind the VPN connection without having to install it on each of them manually
