Who do I buy my domain name from?

‘Registrars’ are the online retailers you can buy your domain name from. The organisation (registrar) essentially reserves the domain name for you, from us, until you tell your registrar you no longer want it. By doing so, you secure your domain name and no-one else can register it or use it for their website or email.

There are thousands of registrars to choose from, offering a range of different services.

While we cannot recommend one registrar over another, we have put together a page with advice on choosing a registrar that’s right for you, or you can visit our domain name search tool to find a registrar.


If not, you can contact our dedicated UK based support team for more information.
