If you are an existing customer of AES Digital Solutions Ltd or you are planning to use us to develop your website or web application for you, then we can help you further with Domain registration services related to your product.
We do not offer general domain registration for individuals or organizations wishing to acquire domains for use on other servers than ours, and we have a stringent acceptable use policy as shown in our terms and conditions section below.
As part of the specification of any website or web application, we will ask whether you wish us to use a pre-existing domain which you have previously registered, or which you yourself will acquire, or whether you wish us to register a domain name on your behalf. If you prefer us to register the domain on your behalf then we will discuss the type of domain with you to identify which geographical location is most relevant. For national websites serving the UK we will often suggest a .UK domain , while for US serving sites we may recommend a .COM domain. And we will indicate the current cost to register the domain for 1, 2 or more years as appropriate.
Once we find the appropriate domain we will register it on your behalf, making clear that you are the registrant. We will also carry out renewals of the domain for you. If subsequently you decide to cancel the website or web application, we can assist you in moving your domain to another registrar or if necessary in cancelling the registration.
Note however if you licence a Software as a Service product from us, accessed via subdomain which belongs to AES Digital Solutions Ltd, such subdomains / domains are is not available for registration of transfer to you.
