£1 domain name with Plusnet account - confused!

Hi - I've set up a domain on my new Plusnet account for £1 a month, but now it appears that Plusnet will only host it for one year unless I pay to renew, and I'll have to pay to renew my domain name after two years. Is that right?
TIA

I don't know how it works , i thought you just continued to pay £1?

I always use 1and1.co.uk rather than my ISP because its only £4.98 for two years and then set a redirect to my free domian space and you don't need to go through the hassle of moving the domain host when changing ISP, just change the redirect.

Doctordark,

I am looking forward to the replies to your question as I am a little confused by the setup as well.

I think you continue to pay £1/month as long as the domain is hosted by Plusnet. The domain is yours to transfer out any time you like.

Hi Simon,
Unless things have changed if you do have one of the £1 a month domains then that covers renewal and everything. Only charge used to be if you wanted to move the domain away from PN, depending how long you had been paying.

Yes, I can confirm that the £1/Month fee also covers the renewal costs.

Hi

Just to confirm - I've had one of these £1/month domains on my accound for 2years now. All you pay is £1/month - this includes renew cost/registration and hosting for life of the account.

I think to only restriction is that if you tranfer out the domain name before having it for 1year there is a admin charge. - remember it was bit pricey.

Help this helps

Hi,

So long as you are paying the £1 per month for the domain then the renewal and hosting are covered by this charge. The Domain Control System may show dates of when the hosting and renewal is required, these are more for our own records so that we renew the domain automatically for you.

I joined PlusNet on a Connect Lite User dialup account and took advantage of the free .co.uk domain offer. However, I'm now on Broadband PAYG and I understand that the .co.uk domain is no longer free. Any idea what happens in this situation?

The £1 per month option is available on Broadband PAYG, but if you didn't go for it when you changed account, I'm not sure if they will allow you to add it retrospectively.
If not, it will cost you £52.88 every two years (so about £2.20 per month) for renewal.

Hi,

You can change the domain to be the £1 domain instead. If you activate the £1 option via Domain Names on the left and then raise a ticket via Contact Us we can change the domain over and it wil automatically be renewed when it's next due.

cost of £1pm domain name ?

i 've just joined plusnet as a £21.99 pm broadband premier member and ticked the box that says domain name for £1 per month.

When i go to choose my domain name after filling in the form it tells me it is going to charge my account £45 Why ? i thought all you did was pay £1 pm and thats it , I had no idea that you had to pay a payment like that .

Is this right or have i done something wrong ?

Hi,

You'll need to wait until your account is active, then you'll be able to register the domain. The reason for this is that should your broadband application fail, you'd be left with a bill for the domain.

Also make sure that you are trying to register a .co.uk address, all others incur a charge.
