How do I register a .UK domain name?

The first step is making sure that your domain name is available. You can do so with our domain name search tool.

We recommend that you register your domain name through a registrar. When you search for a domain name, we’ll provide you with links to registrars through whom you’ll be able to purchase the domain name.

In addition to registering the domain name, most registrars will offer services such as hosting your website, and creating email addresses. But it’s important to know that you don’t have to host your website with your registrar if you don’t want to.

For more information, take a look at our page on choosing a registrar.


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