Buying a domain name is super simple. Just search for your preferred domain name in our “Search domain here” box to check its availability. Then select it, and we’ll guide you through the checkout. If your preferred choice is already taken or reserved, our domain search will automatically suggest similar or related alternatives. These recommendations include choosing a different top-level domain extension (TLD), adding a hyphen or using a closely related domain name. Many businesses choose to register multiple domain name variations and extensions to protect their brand and use them in marketing. For example, you will be wise to register Yourbusiness.com as the main website destination, Yourbusiness.co.uk for your British audience and description.london to reap SEO benefits from attracting new customers searching for your businesses in Google Local.
The short answer is: in theory, yes, but not really. Confusing? We know, so let’s try to explain. Theoretically, any domain name that is not currently taken or reserved can be registered by you. However, bear in mind that restrictions may apply:
Don’t register a domain name that is closely related to another brand unless you can prove your right to do so, as you might be in breach of their trademark which could end up being costly.
Special characters are not allowed. A domain name can only consist of letters, numbers and hyphens, but even hyphens aren’t allowed at the end or beginning. Learn more about domain names.
The minimum character length for domain names is three plus the domain extension. The maximum length is 63 characters apart from .uk, .com, .org and .net extensions which can be 64 characters long.
Some domain extensions can only be registered by government bodies (gov.uk), academic institutions (ac.uk), private limited companies (ltd.uk), public limited companies (plc.uk), or citizens of the EU (.eu).
Some country-specific top-level domains such as .no, .ca, .fr and many more require you to have residency or business headquarters in the country.
You can easily check domain name availability using our domain search function. You’ll instantly see whether your preferred domain name is free and if available, you can register it straight away. In case your domain is already taken, we’ll show you closely linked alternative options including variations on the domain name itself and available domain name extensions.
Don’t worry! We’ve got a broad selection of Top-Level Domains (TLDs) to choose from. These include classics such as .net and .org, but even cooler and more industry-specific options like .digital, .academy, .photography and geographic locations such as .london, .berlin, etc.
Our domain name checker makes hundreds of super-fast requests to different Top-Level Domain registries to check whether your preferred domain name is still available. If it is, you can register and buy it straight away. If it isn’t, we’ll show you a vast number of closely related alternatives you can register instead.
If the domain you’ve typed in is yours, you can easily transfer it to one.com.
Your domain name is the first impression your visitors, clients and customers will get of you. It’s a key element of your brand and identity, so getting it right is crucial. Here are our top tips to help you choose a domain name that is right for your business:
Go for a branded, creative domain name rather than a generic one to make it unique and stand out amongst the competition.
Avoid using hyphens and numbers. Try keeping it simple, short and predictable. If the same domain without the hyphen is taken, chances are you’ll lose a lot of business to that rival website.
Choose a domain name that is easy to spell, type and to pronounce, making it easily shareable.
Think about the longevity of your domain name – will you still be happy with it in years to come?
Choose the right domain name extension for your business. Whether you opt for a classic, country-specific or funky TLD, make sure it’s the right choice for your business or project.
To protect your brand, we’d recommend registering your domain name with several domain extensions to stop imposters from acquiring them.
