Domain names will be registered automatically on receipt of cleared payments and will be registered in the owners name.

Free domain names are available on new hosting plans only (must be 1 year contract or higher).

Domain name renewals: Once renewals are due you will be charged the usual domain name renewal fee as listed in our renewals price list. You will be billed automatically for domain name renewals unless you cancel domain registrations manually via the ‘client area‘.

The Company will consider all requests for domain name registration and accept or reject them in accordance with guidelines set by the relevant naming authorities. In addition to our terms and conditions as set out here, you must also agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the registries we use to secure your domain name, specifically:
