Why pay for email when Gmail is free?

This is a question we are often asked:

Why should I pay for email when I can get Google Mail for Free?

There are many reasons for this; we usually don’t need to mention more than a couple before people understand the importance of paid versus free email.

Firstly, I believe that if you use email for business then it is not a good sign for your business if you use insecure free email to keep customer data. The fact that you can’t or won’t attempt to look professional and keep the basics, email, secure as possible, is a big indicator of other parts of your business where you may not have adequate standards and for many that mean potential clients will be put off. I personally will not use anyone who uses a free email address for any type of business. Using your own domain and email is not necessarily expensive and is no guarantee of anything, but it is the first hurdle and if you fail here it doesn’t matter that you have any awards for this and that and customer comments and reviews because I will not entertain the idea. This is shared by many people that I know. Remember that fraudsters generally don’t bother to use their own domain name as they need to keep costs down and be able to change at the drop of a hat, so they use free email. Most people who sign up to us with free email accounts were just fraudsters trying their luck with us, that is why we no longer accept free email account signups.

Even if you don’t use it for work or business then it’s better to have your own domain and email that you can control. Anyone can get a free email from Google and most fraudsters use Gmail or some other free email account to con people all the time, so you really will put some people off from even looking at you if your email address is a free account. I know that I will not entertain any business that uses them and one of the main reasons is below.

New Secure Domains .PAGE and .APP

We have just added a couple of new exciting TLDs to our shop so that you can now start to order your .PAGE and .APP domain names. These domain names are more secure because they require an SSL certificate in order to work in any modern browser.

Why will they not work without SSL?

Well these two TLDs have decided to put themselves in the HSTS pre-load list. This means that your browser will look at the TLD and recognise that it requires an SSL certificate to connect and will not connect if there is no valid SSL certificate in place. This makes it more secure as it cannot connect without it.

How is this different to the Google forcing SSL?

HSTS has been around since 2009 (then called STS) and is still going strong. It is used by high profile or high value sites to tell your browser that it they should only ever be connected to via HTTPS (secure) connections and never unencrypted (HTTP) connections. There are some other parameters which we will not cover here. This basically gives you protection from downgrade attacks where the attacker will downgrade your connection to your bank so that they can put themselves in the middle (a man in the middle attack) for which there is no way to know you are being attacked and they can have access to all your data, sessions and cookies. With the pre-load list your browser knows beforehand that a site should only be connected to over SSL and by adding these two TLDs to the list all websites ending in .PAGE and .APP will have to be connected to via HTTPS. Google is forcing everyone to use an SSL certificate but will not stop you from connecting; HSTS will prevent you from connecting. There is a lot more technical stuff but we won’t bore you with that right now. If you want the technical information then click here to read about it.

If you get your .PAGE or .APP domain name we can handle the technical side for you and get your new domain name connected and up and running in no time.

.PAGE and .APP domain names can be ordered in the normal way from here or your account.

Children in Need appeal 2018

Nominet are the Domain Registry for the .UK domain name space and they are helping the BBC Children in Need appeal this year. From 8th October to the 19th November 2018 they will give £1 to Children in Need for every full price domain name that is bought in the .uk domain name space. We think that this is a great idea and in order to help them to raise as much money as possible we are getting behind them. We give you a FREE domain name with every hosting account but as we pay the full price for the domain that means that by purchasing one of our Feature Rich Hosting Accounts and choosing a .UK* domain name you will be helping Children in Need also.

*any new registration of a .co.uk, .uk, .org.uk and .me.uk will qualify as long as it is not already part of a Nominet promotion. Domains bought through CritchCorp Computers Ltd promotions will count unless it is part of Nominet Promotion. The only one scheduled to be affected is the RoR promotion starting 1st November 2018. These domains will not count towards the Children in Need donation. All others, including those that are free with other products will count.

If you were thinking about buying a new domain name for a project or new product or promotion then now is the time to buy the domain name in the .UK domain space and you can help Children in Need. Click here to get started.

Nominet are proud to be helping Children in Need, it is part of their mission to help individuals achieve more online. Their donations will fund projects that use digital technology to support vulnerable young people who can benefit the most from new advancements in tech and digital inclusion.

BBC Children in Need is the No. 1 children’s charity in the UK. In 2017/18 it supported 2,600 projects across the UK, improving the lives of over 600,000 children per year. We are proud to be supporting them.

The main televised appeal show will be on the 16th November 2018 (in 2017 it had 7.1 million viewers)
