.UK and .CO.UK domain registrations now available

We are glad to announce that .UK and .CO.UK domains are now available for registration through ICDSoft.

.CO.UK domains are recognized globally as the top-level domain name of choice for businesses in the United Kingdom. Anyone can register a .CO.UK domain name, so if you are working on a project with a target audience in the United Kingdom, you can now order the domain name through ICDSoft at a wholesale price.

.UK domain names have been around only since 2014, but they are getting more and more popular. You can register a shorter and simpler .UK domain instead of, or along with, one of the older second-level domains such as .CO.UK.

As with all other domain name registrations offered by ICDSoft, we sell .UK and .CO.UK domain names at wholesale prices. Check our domain pricing list for more information.

Now may be the perfect time to start a new web project, or transfer an existing one to ICDSoft. Moving a website from another host is a breeze with our free site migration service - our migration specialists will take care of everything for you at no extra cost.

A new feature for the ICDSoft online stores: Hosted storefront

We are happy to introduce the latest enhancement for our online stores - the Hosted storefront. The ICDSoft online stores feature allows our partners to easily create and manage their own online store where they can sell hosting services at their own prices using their own brand.

With the introduction of the Hosted storefront, you no longer need a website or hosting as we host and provide the entire solution for you. Here are some of the advantages of the Hosted storefront solution:

- Immediate setup. After a quick initial configuration, you get a website ready to accept new orders and renewals.
- Automatic service renewal notices with customizable templates.
- No programming/coding skills are needed.
- No website and server maintenance. This is a fully managed and free solution.

    In addition to accepting new hosting orders and acting as a hosting provider yourself, you can use the Hosted storefront to accept renewal orders from your existing customers. You can set your own pricing policy, brand name, and site design. You can set your own custom logo and stylesheet, as well as edit the texts and design of your pages via the management interface.

    The Hosted storefront is enabled by default for all existing and new stores and is configured to work at a generic URL using the Hosted storefront address specified for your online store. You can also use the Hosted storefront with your own domain with a simple DNS change, or disable it and use the widget, the WordPress plugin, or the raw API for integration directly into your existing website.

    Reduced Additional Traffic Prices

    We are happy to announce a reduction of the additional traffic price for all our hosting plans and in all our datacenters.  
    The new price for additional traffic is $0.10 / GB.  

    After we were able to re-negotiate most of our upstream provider contracts, back in July we significantly increased the traffic limit for all hosting plans. With the current traffic allotments, most websites will never need additional traffic. However, if you do need more traffic for your site, you can get it now at a much better price.

    ICDSoft reviewed on hosting.review

    The folks at hosting.review - a popular site that specializes in reviewing web hosting companies - reached out and asked us whether we'd be interested in spreading the word about ICDSoft's services. They did not look for any kind of payment as this would make for a biased review. Something unacceptable for either team. And, when someone offers to write an honest review about our services, we are always happy to oblige.

    So, the team at hosting.review tested our services from their own perspective, which aims to "provide information and advice from a customer to a customer on all aspects related to web hosting". This is a perspective we very much agree with. Their ICDSoft review is already published, and you can check it at:

    ICDSoft is one of the sponsors at WordCamp Sofia 2019

    Nowadays, WordPress is without a doubt the most popular Content Management System (CMS). It powers over 30% of all websites on the Internet (and 14% of the top 100 websites).

    Here at ICDSoft we have always done our best to help our users jump on the WordPress wagon and enjoy their stay there. We had a one-click WordPress installer even before WordPress' popularity skyrocketed. More recently, we introduced a full-blown WordPress section in the hosting Control Panel that allows users to easily manage their WordPress instances.

    And now, the time has come to take the next logical step - join the WordPress community in person and help spread the word (we resisted the urge to make a Word(Press) pun here) about WordPress and ICDSoft. We are proudly sponsoring WordCamp Sofia 2019, which takes place on November 9-10, 2019.

    So, if you are interested in WordPress, or websites in general, make sure you visit WordCamp Sofia this weekend. There you will find:

    * Gifts for every visitor!
    * People with similar interests - websites and WordPress!
    * Lectures on how to achieve more with WordPress!

    The ICDSoft team will be there, so come see us at our booth.
