WEBWIRE – Monday, August 18, 2008 - Fasthosts Internet Ltd, the UK’s number one web hosting company, has
announced a new offer roll out that provides ‘Buy One, Get One Free’ on
domain names registered until the end of August 2008.
The latest domain registration offer means that new or existing
customers who register a .com domain, will receive a free .co.uk
registration for 2 years. The offer, with no catches or ties, is a
great opportunity for small businesses and organisations to expand
their visibility online and better protect their brand identity for
free. Fasthosts has used its economies of scale, as home to more
websites than any other UK provider, to pass savings onto its users.
The offer means that customers simply register any .com domain
names, before the end of August 2008 and they will receive a 2 year .uk
domain registration of their choice (such as .co.uk), for free. The
deal is the latest effort from Fasthosts to make effective web usage
more affordable for smaller players.
Steve Holford, CMO Fasthosts Internet Ltd, said, “Plenty of
providers offer discounts, but what users really need is to experiment
with new solutions without risk. Our ‘Buy One, Get One Free’ deal is a
great way to see the impact of using more domains without investment.
It is especially important for businesses to ensure that their
shop-window onto the world is as prominent as possible”.
A recent research study commissioned by Fasthosts, found that UK
businesses most often choose their primary domain name in haste, with
41 per cent investing under 1 hour of thought in the decision. The
survey of 615 British businesses revealed that the average business
spends only between 6-12 hours choosing their main domain name, and 61
per cent of business owners sought no second opinion before making a
selection. Most significantly, one third (33 per cent) believed that
their sales revenue would improve as a direct result of changing their
web address. Hence, Fasthosts’ free domain offer is an ideal
opportunity for businesses to consider their options and modify or
expand their web identity with ease.
Holford added, “Domains are often bought with little thought at the
start of an online project. Website owners have much to gain from
regularly reviewing their domains to ensure that their website is
working as hard as possible.”
As the UK’s largest web host, Fasthosts offers a comprehensive
range of web solutions including domain name registrations, email
solutions (including mobile email services), shared web hosting,
dedicated servers, online payment services, reseller web hosting and
feature-rich broadband packages.
