It is only possible to register .uk domain names for 2 year periods. However, from 1st May 2012, this will change to a user definable 1 to 10 years.
We offer registration periods of 1 – 10 years with com / info / org / biz / net domain names.
When transferring a UK domain name to UK-Cheapest we do not charge anything, simply ask your existing domain name provider to “Change your IPSTAG to MICROLITE”. There is no cost for this transfer although your domain name provider may make a small admin charge.
If you wish to transfer a .com, .net, .org, .biz or .info domain name to us then there is a transfer charge of £4.99+VAT made by the registry. All is not lost because this also adds a further year to your existing registration period.

How do I setup email forwarding aliases for my domain name?
In an effort to minimise SPAM to your domain name, all email automatically bounces UNLESS you have setup an alias. So, in effect you setup which email addresses will be valid.
1. Login to your domain name control panel
2. On the Features menu on the right, click on “Email Forwarding”
3. In the alias text box on the left type the alias name, eg. “sales”
4. In the destination text box on the right type the target email address eg. “firstname.lastname@example.org”
5. Now press the “Add” button on the right of the destination email address.
6. Now all email sent to “email@example.com” will be redirected to “firstname.lastname@example.org”
7. Add as many aliases as you wish, eg. “info”, “webmaster”, “bob” etc.
