Once logged in, select the domain name by clicking on the white box to the left of it, and then click ‘Cancel Domain’. Follow the instructions and confirm that you would like to cancel.
Once a .UK domain name has been requested to be cancelled, it will enter a 5-day “pending delete” period where it will be placed in a queue to be deleted and will no longer be possible for you to retrieve it.
Once deleted, the domain name can be re-registered on a first come, first served basis by anyone.
You will also need to make sure you cancel any hosting services you have with your registrar.
If your domain name has only recently been registered, you will not be able to cancel it within Nominet Online Services. Instead, you must contact your registrar to arrange the cancellation of your domain name.
To see who your registrar is, and view the registration status of your domain name visit our domain lookup tool.
