- Q: How will I be validated?
When multiple applications are received you will be contacted by e-mail by the validation agent (email@example.com). You will have 21 days to complete the validation process and submit any necessary information. It is very important that you supply this information to ensure that you have the best chance of obtaining the domain that you applied for.
- Q: When will I find out if I will get my domain?
At the end of the London Priority Period you will be notified by email whether you were the highest priority applicant for the domain name(s) you applied for. If you and another party have applied for the same domain name and have equal priority you will be notified that the domain will be going to auction. During this time you will have the opportunity to bid for the rights to the domain name.
- Q: What will happen if I don’t get the domain?
If you aren’t awarded any of the domains that you chose during the London Priority Period you will also be notified by email. You will then be refunded the full cost of your application less the £5 non-refundable Validation fee.

- Q: I have ordered Google Apps, when can I start using it?
- A: After you have completed your order for Google Apps there are several actions we need to take to setup your account. The most important of these is passing the Google Domain Ownership Verification process, which we do on your behalf. This process may take up to an hour to complete after which you will receive an email which confirms that the Google Apps is ready for use.
Keep an eye out for the confirmation email, if you do not receive this after one hour our support team will pick up the error and contact you once it has been resolved. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you encounter any issues.
- Q: I received my confirmation email, how do I start using Google Apps?
- A: The first step in setting up your Google Apps account is to setup your Admin user. This user is the account which will have the authority to create and maintain all other users on your account, as well as add further subscriptions. Login to your account with www.buydomains.london, find the domain and click on the 'Setup Google Apps' button next to your domain. You will be asked to provide the details of your Admin user, which will then be sent to Google to complete your setup. The setup of all subsequent users, as well as all other actions should then be completed directly at the Google Apps website.
