April 10, 2009 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - Fasthosts Internet Ltd.
, home to more websites than any other UK provider, today rolled out an offer that provides ‘Buy One, Get One Free’ on domain names registered until 31 May 2009. Customers who register a .com domain, will receive a free .co.uk registration for 2 years. Fasthosts’ offer, with no catches or ties, is a great opportunity for small businesses and organizations to expand their visibility online and better protect their brand identity for free.
According to figures released in March by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), there has been a record growth in reported cases of cybersquatting in 2008. Whilst multi-national corporate disputes often hit the headlines, smaller UK enterprises can sometimes struggle to defend their brands and stop parties from profiting from their brands. In a challenging economic climate, the cost and time involved in disputing a web identity case is of course unwelcome.
Fasthosts latest offer is designed to help UK companies secure domain names that may reduce their risk to cybersquatting. Customers simply register any .com domain registration before the end of May 2009 and receive a 2 year .uk domain registration of their choice (such as .co.uk) absolutely free.
Steve Holford, CMO Fasthosts Internet Ltd, said “Our ‘Buy One, Get One Free’ deal is the ideal opportunity for businesses to secure additional domains similar or associated with their identity. Many cases of cybersquatting surround typos of company names, so these can sometimes be a prudent acquisition. Even some of the biggest online brands in the world have been caught out. All companies with a web presence should review their domain options periodically”.
As the UK's largest web host, Fasthosts offers a comprehensive range of web solutions including domain name registrations, email solutions (including mobile email services), shared web hosting, dedicated servers, online payment services, reseller web hosting and feature-rich broadband packages.
