Buying Domain Names

Domain names go fast, even with the new domain extensions which were brought into compensate for the ever increasing demand. So, its wise to think of a name and buy that domain as soon as possible to avoid disappointment! However, some TLD (Top Level Domains) are not advisable to purchase so it’s always advisable to get advise on the best option for your needs.

If you don’t have a clue how to do this, then I can search if this name still exists. If it does, I can also purchase it on your behalf, buying and registering from our reputable supplier. Credit card/bank details will need to be given, for ordering and securing your chosen domain.

The company I normally purchase domain names via have had many years of supplying domains both to the world and to me! They also offer one of the best yearly rates in the world for domains, along with easy to use control panels in order maintain or change your domains DNS (Domain Name Server) to a new hosting space at any time.

If you’re at a loss as to what to call your domain name because it’s either gone or you just can’t think of a name, then I will work with you to come up with a name that’s suitable for you!

It is not easy inventing a catchy name that people will remember, and if you want to attract as many people as possible to your site then this is crucial. Long Domain names are problematic, so bare this in mind when thinking of a name.

Please Note:- that if a name is requested it will be checked if available, however in certain circumstances, although it may appear to be available it can be in the process of being registered or Nominet the official body for UK domain names has on rare occasions not always had up to date records especially for other country extensions such as .com, which was originally for US businesses. If this is the case, you will not be charged.

Transferring Domain Names

If you have had the foresight to purchase your Domain name already, and is being parked ready and waiting for transferring to a permanent web hosting space, then I can arrange this transfer for you.

Transfer can take anywhere in the region of 24 hours to 7 days to complete, and can only be done when the purchase of web hosting space has been made, in order to transfer to.

Hosting and Web Space

If you own a site whether created by Quirky by Design, or by someone else you will need hosting space in order to display your website.

This will also provide you with a personal email address so you can retrieve emails directly.  If you wish to buy more than one domain, and this does happen, especially if you wish to stop others from making sites with similar sounding to yours, with similar content, you can have any additional domain parked, redirected and left to develop another web site later on if you so wish. In this case you would need more than enough web space which can support more than one domain.

You would also need to consider the amounts of data transfer allowances per month, for such facilities as chat rooms, forums, and if you have photos or graphics. Every time your site is visited, data is transferred, and if your site is popular, you could find yourself paying extra!

Here at Quirky by Design, I take all of the above as standard, making it even easier to get your site up running, cutting out the middle man, by creating my own hosting company. I offer very competitive hosting packages, which is also included in my website packages for the first year if paying one off or included in monthly repayments (min term 24 months).

You don’t even have to have a website designed by Quirky by Design, you may just wish to transfer to a more reasonable package, and what’s more, transferring to Quirky By Design is Free!

Quirky By Design offers good packages, servers are UK based, very reasonable rates, and will definitely fit with your budget, reducing your yearly expenses dramatically!
