Hi there,

I am in the process of purchasing two domain names. I do not yet require hosting. I have three questions I'd like to ask:

1) Can I purchase hosting later?
2) What does 'UK Whois Opt-out' mean?
3) What does 'Setup Email Catch-all' mean?

Cheers for your help!

Yes

Sorry, can't help you on that one  Sad
My wild guess would be a method to hide your registration details from the UK WHOIS search engine. As with most domains, you're name, address and phone number will be listed (assuming you put correct info).

3) What does 'Setup Email Catch-all' mean?
Basically it will catch any email that is being sent to a non-existent address on your domain. So if you only had pearson@yourdomain.com it would receive mail as normal. If someone emailed joe@yourdomain.com (and the account did not exist), it would be routed to the catch all address.
