Domain name registration

If the project involves a new site rather than an upgrade, it will be necessary to register a new domain name, more usually referred to as a 'web address' or 'uniform (or universal) resource locator (URL)'.

Domain names are registered using an ISP or direct with one of the domain name services, such as:

1 InterNIC (www.internic.net). Registration for the .com, .org and .net domains.

2 Nominet (www.nominet.ora.uk). Registration for the .co.uk domain. All country-specific domains such as .fr (France) or .de (Germany) have their own domain registration authority.

3 Nomination (www.nomination.uk.com). An alternative registration service for the UK, allowing registration in the (uk.com) pseudo-domain.

The following guidelines should be borne in mind when registering domain names:
