A domain name is the main part of your website name. It is how web browsers can find out how (or more realistically where) it can find the code for your website. Your website will have an IP address, but rather than remember the IP address, the browser will ask the DNS servers the corresponding IP address for your website.
Domain Names aren't just for websites, they work for email, ftp, games and other services.
A domain name can be any combination of letters and numbers, and it can be used in combination of the various top level domains (such as .com)
A domain name must be registered before you can use it, therefore people often register the domain before it is needed so that they know it will notbe taken by somebody else.
You can't just chose any domain name. It must follow some simple rules and most importantly, must not be registered
This website has tools to help you find suitable available domain names.
If you find an available domain name, click on buy and then create an account and register the domain for 1,2,3 or more years
If you find a great domain, register it. There is nothing worse than finding it has been taken later. Most domains are under 10 dollars/pounds for a year, so if you change your mind, just don't renew it.
Domains are typically just under 10 dollars or pounds for a year. Some Top Level Domains (e.g. .info) can be more.
Domain Name Soup started as lots of searching tools to find available domains that would suit your business or website.
We also have tools to safeguard your domains and even email you when they are coming up for renewal.
Domain Name Soup started by being just a search site in 2005. However, when visitors found domains, they typically wanted to know how to register them. We started by referring visitors to other sites, but we had little control over how those sites treated users. I, for one, saw my prices rocket on renewal (from £3.50 to 17.50 renewal).
Therefore, we have partnered with one of the largest resellers in the world, one we've used for over 10 years and have set all our prices low. We hope you find it helpful, but you are free to use your preferred reseller if you like.
Our partner company have many help pages that can be found at https://www.secureserver.net/help
You are completely free to use this site without using our store. However, we have partnered with a company we have used and trusted for over 10 years and have set the prices low.
Domains can be transferred at any time. Because you pay on an annual basis, the cheapest time is at renewal, however you can transfer at any time.
Any other reseller will tell you how to transfer your domain elsewhere.
Therefore, our advice is to register with us as soon as you find your domain, but if you later find another reseller you would prefer, then transfer your domain later. If you registered for just one year, then tranferring in 12 months means you won't be out of pocket.
However, we are confident you will like our services, the reliability and all the available extras (such as hosting) that can be integrated.
We hope the '' tool helps. If you have any suggestions, please contact us
