Domain Name Search

Don't put "www." in front of the domain. "www." is a host name, not a domain name. You should not use "www" anywhere unless it part of the actual domain name you are looking for.

Names are NOT case-sensitive. The name is the same whether you use upper or lowercase.

Legal characters are 0 to 9, a to z and - (hiphen).

Underscores (_) and spaces are not permitted in domains. Domains names are NOT case-sensitive.

(www.MyDomain.com is the same as www.mydomain.com & is the same as WWW.MYDOMAIN.COM).

For a domain ending in .uk (Nominet UK) a maximum of 63 characters (before any full stop characters) is permitted.

For InterNIC USA domains (.com, .net, .org) a maximum of 63 characters (before any full stop characters) is permitted.

This is NEW - until recently only 22 characters were permitted. BulkBuyUK allows the full length - a new service.

For short domain names, InterNIC USA (.com .net .org) allows 2 character domain names, but Nominet UK (.co.uk .org.uk etc) requires a minimum of three characters.

Valid Domain Entries

When checking for a domain enter the domain only and select whatever necessary TLD or extension from the drop-down menu list. Do not enter "www." in the beginning of the domain; it is not part of the domain name.
