A lot of businesses, and individuals, have taken up Microsoft Office 365. On the surface there's a lot to like:

To enable us to provide a complete service to our clients we are pleased to announce that we have launched a new, fully Nominet registered and approved, domain name registration and management service.
This means that all .UK domains registered through us are directly managed by us - no intermediaries at all.

To learn more, or register your domain with us, just visit our website and get started...
