Domains & Hosting

Domain name registration.

If you haven’t already purchased a domain name for your website, then I’ll happy to do this on your behalf. I use a UK based registration company, with all details strictly in your name. Prices vary depending on the top level domain, but start from as little as £12 per annum.

If you already have a domain name you’d like to use, or choose a different registration company to make your purchase, then no problem, I’m happy to offer you some guidance.


If you register your own domain name remember to keep the login details safe, these will be required by me when setting up your website and associated services.


Insist that anyone registering a domain name on your behalf uses your name and contact details, not theirs. It’s your domain name – no web design company should  be registered as the owner.

Website Hosting.

All websites produced by me come with one year’s free hosting. I use a UK based hosting company with a very good reputation and excellent support. Those using my website hosting service will be invoiced annually from year two onwards for the service.

My pricing varies depending on the complexity and demands of the website; simple websites with no CMS start from £45 per annum, whilst most websites using a CMS start at £80 per annum.

If you already have hosting, and this meets my minimum standards for performance and reliability then I’m happy to use your existing service provider.


If we’re using your existing hosting I will require the following before I can transfer your new website.

  • FTP (file transfer protocol) details; host, username and password details.
  • Domain name details; company, username and password details.
