Registering a domain
Your domain name is what your website visitors will type to visit your website or email you, and what you will use in your marketing material so you need to pick something that not only represents your brand, but is succinct, easy to remember, and most importantly, available to register.
To search for available domains type an idea you've had into the search box, you don't need to put the www, just the bit to the left of the dot. Then type what is technically called a top level domain, the most common is .com but if you're in the UK you might want to try .co.uk or just .uk as it will be more representative of your company and not make you seem like a far away American company or anonymous brand. Then click the search button and cross your fingers!
Freethought isn't like other registrars, we charge fair and transparent prices listed with tax included so there are no surprises. More importantly if you want to register a carbon neutral domain or would like an ethical domain registrar then we are the best choice, we are certified carbon neutral and we are an independently verified ethical domain registrar that was scored 14.5 out of 15 by Ethical Consumer magazine.
How much does a domain cost?
We publish all our domain prices including VAT with no hidden fees on our domain price list, on average we are 26% cheaper than the top leading registrars for popular domains, and 45% cheaper on average for UK domains.
When comparing us with other registrars watch out for big companies like GoDaddy and 123-Reg as they like to advertise prices excluding VAT (Even though the law says they must advertise inclusive VAT price) and they like to add hidden charges like "ICANN Fees" and unnecessary add-ons like ID protection that you don't really need at the checkout.
Save 45% on average compared to big name registrars such as 123-Reg, GoDaddy, 1&1 IONOS, and Namesco.
