Frequently Asked Questions
Find answers to some frequently asked questions about hosting:
Why do I need a domain name?
A Domain Name provides the basis of your identity on the Internet which typically forms your email and website addresses. It reflects your business identity or perhaps yourself. Importantly, you have exclusive use and it is not tied to a specific service provider.
How much does domain registration cost?
Domain Names are typically registered for your exclusive use for a period of between 1 and 10 years. Prices vary depending upon the Top Level Domain (TLD) that you register it under. Common TLDs include COM and ORG, ccTLDs include CO.UK, DE, CO.NZ.
Does a domain come with a website and email?
Registering a domain reserves the right to use the domain but it does not inherently include a website or email. Iridis offer a range of flexible options starting from just a few Pounds/Euro/Dollars per month.
Should I register a .UK and a .COM domain?
If you have thought of a new domain that is available as both a .CO.UK and .COM it is a good idea to register both as it protects your identity on the Internet and is cheaper than retrospectively trying to purchase a domain held by a third party.
What is the benefit of registering a .UK domain?
For our UK based clients we think it is particularly beneficial that the .UK registry (Nominet) is based within the jurisdiction of the laws of England & Wales. If you register a .something-or-otherwhat legal recourse do you have with the registry in a far-flung country?
What is WHOIS, will my details be public?
When a domain is registered the registry will update the WHOIS database to include your domain. Historically this record included the street address of the domain owner. However, since GDPR was introduced the default is typically for UK/EU registrant details to be withheld from display in WHOIS.
Do you provide Hosting DNS?
Complimentary DNS Hosting is included with support for up to 25 records per domain. Managed via our client portal you have 24/7 secure access. Moreover, DNS hosting is compatible with third-party Website Builders such as Shopify, Wix and Weebly.
Why should I choose Iridis to register my domain?
Iridis has been providing domain registration and management on behalf of clients since 2001 so we like to think we know what we are doing. Importantly, we have a simple approach which means all domain names are register in your name and there are no hidden fees if you wish to transfer a domain at a later date.
