Domain registration with freeparking.co.uk is
a short, painless process. Just follow these simple steps..
Open the freeparking website. You can do this by clicking
here - the site will open in a new window.
(It should open up leaving this one on top - you might need to resize some windows to be able
to see it.)
Decide which domain you want to register. The choice will depend on which
domains have already been used; the quickest way to find out is to enter one
or more keywords (eg your company name) into the search boxes as the top of
the freeparking website, then hit the Advanced button.
Select the domains you want to purchase. If you are lucky, your
search will give you several options - if it gives you none you will have to try searching using
IMPORTANT: By default, freeparking assumes you want to register all matching
domains it finds - if this is not the case uncheck any you don't want (clicking on the ticks you
don't want will remove them).
NOTE: The prices vary for different domain names due to the different prices
charged by the different domain registrars involved. The cheapest are .co.uk and
Hit the Register button. This begins the domain registration process.
Register yourself as a user. In order to proceed, freeparking need
your name and address details at this point. You will also need to enter a username
and password which will allow you to login and make changes to your domain at a
later date, or to register new domains.
The registration process is short - click the "online form" link and enter your
details. Don't forget to make a note of your username and password!
Login to freeparking. Use the username and password you just set up.
Complete the Order Form. You will need to enter:
Registrant: The company details for ownership of the domain.
The details you entered earlier are probably OK, but if not use the
New Registrant button to add new details.
Admin Contact: The details of whoever is responsible for administering the domain.
Again, you will probably want to use the details you entered earlier; use the New
Admin Contact button otherwise.
