About Us

What is Livetodot?

We were the first fully automated online domain registration service for .it domain names. We quickly became the number 1 website for purchasing Italian domain names.

Today, we offer a whole range of domain names including the popular .com and co.uk names as well as other upcoming names such as .tv and .biz.

How did Livetodot start?

In the year 2000, we found out about the .it domain name and realised what a great opportunity ‘it’ offered! You can use the extension to make a phrase, for example:

  • www.buy.it
  • www.discover.it
  • www.searchfor.it

But when we tried to register a name, we discovered that it cost an extortionate amount of money. The cheapest provider was £150 + VAT per year and the most expensive was £499 + VAT! What is more, they required a working knowledge of the Italian language in order to create your own Letter of Assumption of Responsibility (LAR). Can you believe it?!

So, we set about building a cheap domain name service which was really easy to use. The birth of www.livetodot.com.

Who uses Livetodot?

We have hundreds of clients using our system and thousands of domains in use all over the world. Some of our clients are large blue chip companies, others are individuals with their own website or blog. They all enjoy the same high level of service.
