Frequently Asked Questions
What is a domain name?
A domain name is the name you enter into a web browser to allow people to load your website. For example: hipposerve.co.uk.
It also forms part of your email address. For example: email@example.com
Do I need to have a domain name to have a web site?
In short, yes. Without a domain name you would need to use the servers IP address in order to access your website. This would look something like this 188.8.131.52/~mysite. It doesn't make your website easy to use.
Is my business protected once I register my domain name?
When your domain name is registered it means no-one else can use it and pass their website off as yours. However, you may want to register different variants of domain name to prevent those from being used too. For example: register .com, .co.uk, .org and .net
Why are different TLD's (top level domain names) different prices.
It's all down to popularity. The more desirable a TLD the more it will cost. Some TLD's are placed on promotion from time to time. You can find the latest list of promoted domain names here.
Will I need to renew my domain name?
Yes. You will need to renew your domain name depending on the length of time that you registered it for. This is typically 1 - 5 years, depending on your choice.
Who owns my domain name?
A domain name is never owned outright, but rented based on the registrar's terms and conditions. You do however get exclusive use and automatic right to renew the address.
