Buying a number and creating an account is simple.
Firstly you need to work out on the type of number you want. This could be:
- 01 / 02 Geographic Number;
- 0333 Non-Geographic Number; (0300 for charities)
- 0800 Freephone Number;
- 084 Service Number;
- 07 UK Mobile Number.
Once decided, go to the relevant page and select the number range (dialling code) you want from the drop-down list in the purple box.
If you want a particular sequence of numbers at the end of your new number this can be typed into the End Pattern box, leaving this blank will return every possible number in the range you select.
Select and all the matching numbers are displayed. They are split into pricing brackets based on how memorable the number is.
Standard numbers are made up of random digits, whereas Bronze numbers and above will have repeated sequences, sets and figures. The higher the bracket, the more duplicated numbers and sequences will feature.
When you have found a number you wish to purchase, click on the number and it will be highlighted.
