Exploit Park & Ride Service
In addition to our award winning full virtual webservers, Exploit also offer a park and ride service.
This service is ideal if you do not need a full web server and simply want to protect your domain name until you are ready to go live on the web, or if you have an existing domain, for example a .com domain, and would like to add a .co.uk domain to your site.
All our domain parking quotations are fully inclusive of all fees, with .co.uk domains starting from just £ 21 per year including domain registration, holding page, re-direction and all network registry fees - there is absolutely nothing more to pay.
To obtain a free quotation click here to check your domain name is free, then follow the option to obtain a quotation for that domain. The only question you will be asked is what country you live in so we can calculate any tax that may be payable, then you will be given a fixed price, fully inclusive quotation for that domain.
Frequently asked questions
When comparing our prices with the free domain offers, always remember to include all their charges. Whilst other companies register the domain for free, you still have to pay for the network or nic fee, and there is often a surcharge if you want to move the domain at a later date to another provider.
The current average cost of a 'free' domain name is over £80 when you include these fees - this is how the free companies make their money.
All Exploit quotations are fully inclusive of all fees, the price you see is the price you pay, there are no hidden extras.
If you are considering another provider ALWAYS check their small print to ensure you own the domain you are paying for and don't have to pay again to buy your own domain should you choose to re-locate your web server.
Some well known 'free' companies register domain names on behalf of clients in their own name. They then charge the client should they wish to move the domain to another service. As you do not technically own the domain in this situation, you have to either pay the fee, or stay with the company. This is very common, so be careful!
We do not agree with this practice at Exploit, ALL domains registered by Exploit on behalf of our clients are registered in our clients name, you own the domain you pay for.
We use server side re-direction and not client side. This is important as it means the redirection is not dependant on the clients software.
All paths are mapped, so for example if you registered a domain http://www.exploit.as/ and mapped this to http://www.exploit.net/, then the path http://www.exploit.as/wizard/ would also map to http://www.exploit.net/wizard.
Full path mapping allows you to map a new domain to your existing web server and run anything on that server, eg. shopping cart or search facility without any re-programming.
Exploit was established in 1995, at the very start of the net as we know it today.
We were formed primarily as a software development company, specialising in internet promotion, however we quickly found the standards of hosting on the net were not acceptable. We therefore took matters into our own hands and developed a range of servers and solutions that could be promoted, giving our customers the unfair advantage we promised.
We now host accounts throughout the world and maintain a 99% server renewal rate, practically unheard of within the industry!
