If you meet the requirements for either domain type and wish to proceed with the registration you would need to complete a template form supplied by us. Once completed we will review the application and raise the invoice for payment. The registration cost for either an .ac.uk or .gov.uk is £199.00 (ex VAT) for the first 2 years registration plus a non-refundable application fee of £40.00 (ex VAT).Subsequent renewals are every 2 years at £99.00 (ex VAT). The payment must be made directly to Total Web Solutions before an application could be submitted to JANET on your behalf. Unsuccessful applications would be refunded in full for the registration fees (but not the application fees).
Please contact us to assist you in registering your gov.uk or ac.uk domain names. Domains can be hosted with Total Web Solutions directly on one of our Shared/Cloud/Managed Servers or if you prefer you can use an alternative host.
