Frequently asked questions
To save you money, and make life easier for you.
MyCheapDomains.co.uk is for managing domain names ending .uk that are registered with us. Everything about the domain can be configured using the site, from the email configuration (POP3 accounts, aliases etc) to the DNS hostnames data. Registrations and renewals are for two years and cost £10.
Compared to other sites which claim to do much the same thing - you are
not tied in at all. You can leave at any time and transfer your domain
name elsewhere. There is no 'transfer fee' but you should be aware that
all payments for registrations and renewals are not refundable.
You need to contact the existing Nominet Tag holder responsible for your domain name. If you don't know who this is, enter your domain name into the Domain Checker on the home page of this site. The output will show the tag and usually a URL, enabling you to contact the appropriate people.
You need to get them to release the domain name to our Nominet tag which
is FORDSYS. Be aware that some companies, unlike MyCheapDomains,
will charge you for releasing a domain name.
If you decide that you would rather use a different company to manage your domain names then you are completely free to do so. All you have to do email firstname.lastname@example.org giving details, including the Nominet tag you wish to transfer your domain to. It is your responsibility to ensure that the new tag holder is aware of the transfer and has given you permission.
If you think we could improve our service in any way, please let us know.
Please be aware that all fees for registrations and renewals are non-refundable.
