When choosing the right provider for your domain and website hosting is like choosing a car insurance company, it’s when things go wrong that you realise just how good the service is! That’s why we recommend all our customers purchase their domains and hosting in their OWN name with 1&1 UK.
With the domain and hosting package set up in your own personal account, you have complete control on your website forever. No more requesting transfers from one developer to another, or losing your domain because you missed the renewal reminder email and the developer cancelled it! This does happen all too often, therefore we set you up correctly from day one so you have all the legal rights over your website, not the developer.
We have used 1&1 UK since we started the company and always recommend our clients purchase and register their chosen domain through them for value for money as well as ease of use. We have experienced most of the others such as GoDaddy, Yell, 123 Reg to name but a few, however on personal experience with downtime, problem solving, account enquiries and transfers, we think you can’t beat 1&1 for service every time, which is probably why they are the UK’s No. 1 provider. They grow with you, so no matter where your business takes you, 1&1 can be the provider to support you on that journey. To help you out, here is a brief description of the basics you need to get your website up and running.
A domain is your address on the internet. Ours is kiswebsites.com What will yours be? Pick one that is easy for people to remember and best describes what you do or who you are. Use it for your website and emails as having a Hotmail, Gmail, or BT Internet don’t cut the mustard when it comes to professionalism. Pick several to claim your brand such as .co.uk, .com etc. That way if anyone else starts a business and wants to piggy back off your hard work advertising, they won’t be able to if you have the .co.uk and .com domains. For more info on choosing the best domain see our blog.
1&1 offers easy website hosting solutions for your needs, whether you want to create a blog or a professional business website. Let your website grow with your needs and scale up whenever you want. Most clients will only need the basic package which starts at £0.99 per month (12 months) and right now they have a free SSL Certificate for 12 months worth over £50 to comply with GDPR, up to 100GB of storage and up to 500 free emails per account, so more than enough for most businesses. They also have superfast servers to ensure your customers are not waiting too long for the pages to load.
The biggest benefit is that all developers will be able to then assist you in designing your website but should you consider changing developer at any time, you are in complete control of your website, removing any awkward conversations should you have a fall out later down the line!
So whatever business you are in, artist, plumber, tutor or sports coach now is a great time to start your website journey. Click here to see if your chosen domain is available and ready for you to purchase today!
