Purchasing additional domain names

Can I have additional domain names (domain alias) linked to my website?

Yes, it is possible for you to have more than one domain name linked to your website – the technical name for this is ‘domain alias’, which is when more than one domain name leads to the same website. For example, if you had www.mywebsite.com you could also have the .co.uk domain version and point it to your existing .com website. You can add as many domain aliases to your website as you like.

How do I purchase an additional domain name
?

Activated your website after July 2012 or got the new account centre? 

If you want to purchase any additional domain names for your site, log in to your MrSite account at www.mrsite.co.uk/login and select 'MrSite's Shop' in the main menu, followed by ‘MrSite add-ons’. 

Select from the drop-down menu the website you want to add the domain name to. You'll see two options, one to purchase extra webspace - so make sure 'none' is ticked - and then tick the 'Yes, add a domain name' box. 
You will be asked to enter the domain name you’d like to purchase. Please note, you will not need to add to type the www. into this box. From the drop down list, select the relevant domain name extension.

Click on the 'Check availability' button and if this domain name is available, a blue ‘Buy it now’ button will appear. If the domain is not available, the screen will display 'This domain is already taken' – you can either type a new name into the box or select another extension and try again.

When you're happy with your choice of domain name, click 'Confirm order'. You'll see a summary of your order - click 'Checkout', select how you want to pay and then enter your payment details. 

When your payment has gone through, you'll now see the additional domain showing in the 'My domains' section of your account.

When you are happy with your choice of name, click ‘Buy it now’ and you will be taken through to the payments page – complete your details as necessary and click the orange ‘Proceed to checkout & pay’ button.

Just click on the relevant payment to see the corresponding receipt.

If you now go back to the ‘Manage my account’ tab and click on ‘Manage my domains’, you will see your new domain name has been added in the ‘Domain manager’ list. You will also notice there is a green tick under ‘Is live’, which indicates that this domain name is now linked to your website.
