Can I pay using PayPal ?

Yes, we accept PayPal and any type of credit / debit card, just navigate to the online shop.

Do you have web mail for the r-us.co.uk email account ?

Yes we do, its at https://r-us.co.uk/webmail/ you enter in your email account which will be YourName@YourWebSiteName.-r-us.co.uk and password given when hiring your web URL.

So how do you do this web and email transfer ?

We firstly make your domain name on our server, for example yahoo.r-us.co.uk

We then add SSL support so HTTPS://yahoo.r-us.co.uk can be used as well as http://yahoo.r-us.co.uk

We also give you a FTP for yahoo.r-us.co.uk with a password. This is sent to your email address given when hiring the domain name.

An email account is setup with a generated password and is emailed to your email address given when hiring the domain name. We setup an email forward address (given on signup) and we don’t store forwarded email.

If you wish you can use our email client without forwarding, we will just delete the Forward email address and you will sign into the online dashboard or download to outlook or any mail client you have.

Information is sent to your email address given when hiring the domain name.

At this stage you can upload your own web site if required at no extra cost and have your own email address.
