Typically how much does a website domain name cost to register?
Depends a bit on the name how much you will pay. I’ve got a whole bunch with speednames.co.uk and they seem ok. As mentioned above you can just buy the name now and sort out the hosting later. Pm me if you want a hand
Edit:just checked speednames for a few possibilities – they seem expensive now.Posted 4 years ago
Just to give you an idea yourname.eu is available for 13 eur/yr and yourname.me is available for 9eur a year through godaddy.compdwMember
Registering a domain, particularly .uk domains, should be pretty cheap. Wholesale price on a .uk is about £5 for two years. Renewals should cost the same.
You’ll also need to get somewhere to host it, which usually costs more than the domain but still isn’t very expensive.Posted 4 years agomcmoonterMember
I’m a serial Luddite that needs to drag myself up speed. I’ve been asked too many times if I have a website to show my work, but haven’t a clue as to how to go about it or the costs involved.
Initially I’d need to register a domain name, any ideas of the costs to register and maintain one?
EDIT, being able to post a thread on the correct page would be a worthwhile starting point. 😳Posted 4 years agomrben101Member
Something I can actually help with (unlike advice on mtb’s!)
Tend to buy my domains from http://www.fasthosts.co.uk. Cheap and its easy to redirect your domain to hosting elsewhere. Think the .co.uk domain I bought today was about £6 for 2 years. Typically .com is about double that so not expensive.
If you are not using an online service like Tumblr then you’ll need hosting – which is where the files for your website live. Cheapest, reliable hosting I’ve found is TSO Host. I use then for my personal hosting and know 4 or 5 people that use them. Hosting there is £15 a year: https://www.tsohost.com/product/web-hosting
Had good support when I had an issue recently. UK based too.
If you use my referral you’ll get another 10% off: 10offmbb
If you need proper business level hosting and support then http://3dpixel.net are awesome. At work I think we spend about £150 a month with them. The support there is great, even if you are on their basic £40 package. Again, UK based.
Hope that helps!
If you use a web designer to build you a site they should be able to sort all this out for you.
Once you have that sorted you’ll need a website – but like bikes you can have one built for £500 or £5000, just depends on what you need or can afford. If you are really on a budget i’ve seen some OK websites built with Tumblr which is free. A bit restrictive, but might get you started.Posted 4 years ago
