Index > Buying or pointing domain names

 

This is where you can order a domain name for your website, you may want to replace your existing domain name or buy another one to point at your website as its possible to have more than one domain name pointing at the same website.
Please note: A domain should take around 12 hours to become fully active.
Please Note: Buying additional domain names cost £12.00 per year. To do this, we will charge you pro-rata up to your Wizz-it renewal date, and from then on it will be included in your annual renewal fee. Because your yearly fee will have increased, we will cancel your recurring payment and on your renewal date you will be emailed an invoice for the new total amount with a link to start the recurring payment again.

  1. Click on the My account tab and then select 'Order Domain Name' from the drop down menu.
  2. Press the 'Choose a domain name' button under the Buy Domain Name section. and enter the domain you want to buy then press the Lookup Domain button to see if its available.
  3. If it is available, press the Order button which will close the current window and return to the previous page. Alternatively if it is not available repeat the process with another domain until you find one that's available.
  4. Once you have returned to the previous page press the Order button at the bottom of the page and follow the instructions. If you want to change your domain press the Change Domain button in the Buy a Domain Name section.

 

To Point a Domain Name:
With this method your domain name will stay with the company that currently holds it and it will point to your website.
Please note however that this means that they will continue to charge you for your domain name rather than us charging you for it.

  1. Click on the My account tab and then select 'Order Domain Name' from the drop down menu.
  2. Enter the domain name you wish to point in the "Domain Name to Point" field under the Point a Domain Name section.
  3. Please ask the company that currently holds the domain to change the A-record for your domain to: 217.160.95.13
  4. Don't worry if you're confused - they will know what you mean!
  5. Press the Order button at the bottom of the page and follow the instructions.
