The offer means that customers simply register any .com domain names [http://www.fasthosts.co.uk/domains/], before the end of August 2008 and they will receive a 2 year .uk domain registration of their choice (such as .co.uk), for free. The deal is the latest effort from Fasthosts to make effective web usage more affordable for smaller players.
Steve Holford, CMO Fasthosts Internet Ltd, said, âPlenty of providers offer discounts, but what users really need is to experiment with new solutions without risk. Our âBuy One, Get One Freeâ deal is a great way to see the impact of using more domains without investment. It is especially important for businesses to ensure that their shop-window onto the world is as prominent as possibleâ.
A recent research study commissioned by Fasthosts, found that UK businesses most often choose their primary domain name in haste, with 41 per cent investing under 1 hour of thought in the decision. The survey of 615 British businesses revealed that the average business spends only between 6-12 hours choosing their main domain name, and 61 per cent of business owners sought no second opinion before making a selection. Most significantly, one third (33 per cent) believed that their sales revenue would improve as a direct result of changing their web address. Hence, Fasthostsâ free domain offer is an ideal opportunity for businesses to consider their options and modify or expand their web identity with ease.
Holford added, âDomains are often bought with little thought at the start of an online project. Website owners have much to gain from regularly reviewing their domains to ensure that their website is working as hard as possible.â
