How do I cancel my domain name?

You should only cancel a domain name if you are sure that you no longer need it.

If you wish to cancel a domain name you can do this in your Online Services account

Log into Online Services

Once a .UK domain name is cancelled it will be available immediately to be re-registered on a first-come, first-served basis by any applicant. You will also need to make sure you cancel any hosting services you have with your registrar.

If you need to cancel a newly registered domain name you may not be able to do this immediately through your online service account. You can contact your registrar to discuss this or contact us for further advice.

If you are having problems accessing your Online Services account. Use the link below:

Once scheduled for cancellation the domain name will be removed from the register on the day of cancellation, at some point before midnight. The domain name will then be available for anyone to register.


If not, you can contact our dedicated UK based support team for more information.
