Is it a one off payment?

Yes. The domain name you will be purchasing will be a one-off cost and nothing more to pay. The domain name will be yours for life! Please make sure you renew the domain name so that it does not expire and become available to the public. Renewals are very cheap and you can now renew any .uk domain names for upto 10 years.

Who will be the legal owner?

Once full payment is received we transfer the legal ownership to the new owner.

How long after payment can I expect the Domain?

The domain will be sent straight away via the Nominet transfer portal. To complete the legal transfer normally takes around 2-3 minutes.

What are Domain renewals

Domain renewals are a major part in keeping your domain active, every single internet domain must be renewed* times vary with different domain extension's. For .uk domain names renewals can be done every 1yr, 2yr, 4yr, 6yr, 8yr, and finally 10year renewals costing £42.00. It makes sense to renew the domain name for as long as possible.
