The UK Domain by Nominet

The UK Domain is run by Nominet, the official registry for all .UK domain names. Nominet has managed and run the .UK registry for over 25 years.

We want to create a world which is more connected, inclusive and secure and our social impact programmes help improve the lives of young people in the UK.

About .UK Domains

The UK Domain Family includes four domain extensions, each with a unique offering and proposition.

One of the most established and popular domains in the world, .co.uk is a great choice for business and enterprise in the UK. The latest addition to the family, .uk, is the shorter, distinctive domain that’s designed for both businesses and individuals.

For charities, .org.uk domains offer the ideal online space to champion causes, communities and not for profit organisations. While for personal projects, .me.uk domains are ideal to build a unique online presence to showcase hobbies and talents.

The UK Domain as a resource

The website offers an online comparison tool where anyone can search for available .UK ending domain names and view a selection of our accredited registrars who you can purchase your new domain with. You can also filter the results based on services offered such as website builder packages or hosting to find the best partner for your new domain purchase.
